Posted on: Oct 9, 2013 - 2:30pm IST

Unlike last year where Mahindra had multiple launches or variants to celebrate the festival season, things would be kept low key this year as Mahindra have an empty product pipeline until 2016. The Mahindra Scorpio Special Edition launched today could be the only talking point this Diwali for the utility vehicles major.

Mahindra Scorpio Special Edition
The production of the special edition is limited to 500 units.

Limited to 500 copies, the special edition, launched to spruce up the appeal of the Scorpio, is priced at Rs. 11.88 lacs (ex-showroom Delhi), and is painted in Pearl White. The wheels are chrome plated and racy body decals are adorned on the front and side of the car.

Moving to the interior, the vehicle receives a gloss wood finish centre bezel, and a tan and beige leather upholstery for the seats, steering wheel and the gear lever. On the features front, a roof mounted 9” DVD player has been introduced. The usual safety and convenience features from the top-end Scorpio such as dual airbags, ABS, parking sensors, rain sensor, light sensor and tire pressure sensor are available by default.

Mahindra Scorpio Special Edition features
The exact same special edition was launched in 2010, where it was limited to a 1,000 units.

The mechanical package of the vehicle is retained with the 2.2L four-cylinder engine putting out 120bhp.

The Scorpio continues its dream run in the market with over 4 lakh units sold since the launch 11 years ago. When competition intensified with the launch of the Renault Duster last year, the Scorpio managed to sell more volumes, and recorded one of its highest monthly sales in this period. 25% of cumulative Scorpio sales have come in the last two years hinting that the best is yet to come from the old workhorse.

    XUV is overpriced, Quanto is flop, Scorpio is doing good but loosing its market to Duster and Ecosport …only Bolero is performing well…Mahindra has to do something and quick..

    To be honest, Scorpio’s sales numbers these days are derived primarily from the villages and Tier III cities. Just like the Bolero has appealed to the village market and is clocking massive numbers every month, the Scorpio is following a similar trajectory now.

    M&M is primarily dependent on Bolero and Scorpio for their sales numbers. 70% of their sales numbers are coming from the Bolero and Scorpio twins. Apparently, the rest of the 7 products are not contributing much here.

    The point of concern here would M&M seems to be losing grip on the city population who has chosen to go with the established global players like Renault, Ford, Nissan, Toyota and the like. The quality related issues for its vehicles and their dissatisfied owners have not helped their cause one bit. With no new products till 2016, M&M seems to be in a bad rut. ..Hope they can turn tit around somehow.
