The new Scorpio is available to pre-order for INR 20,000.

The website also says that delivery of the new Scorpio will tentatively take between 4-6 weeks. Mahindra is reported to have started production of the new Scorpio as early as last month at their Nashik plant in Maharashtra. The company is believed to have built up a heavy inventory to minimize waiting periods.

The new Scorpio will come in five colors, the image below representing their shades and names. The SUV will be available in a total of six variants called S2, S4, S6, S6+, S8 and S10. The S6+ gets a driver airbag and ABS as standard fitment.
