The Intelli-Hybrid Scoprio is available only with the 2.2L mHawk diesel engine paired to manual transmission.

Intelli-hybrid replaces Mahindra’s Micro-hybrid system (basically an auto start stop feature), and is available in all grades of the Scorpio equipped with the 2.2L mHawk engine (S4, S4+, S4+ 4WD, S6+, S8, S10-2WD and S10-4WD). The base S2 grade with the 2.5L m2DICR engine, Scorpio automatic and the Scorpio 1.99L mHawk (sold only in Delhi NCR) variants are not equipped with the Intelli-Hybrid system.

Mahindra claims that the Intelli-Hybrid system reduces fuel consumption by upto 7 percent, thanks to features such as auto start-stop, brake energy recuperation, a larger capacity battery and a starter motor which functions as both an alternator and a motor that provides a mild electrical boost in certain driving conditions.

With the Intelli-Hybrid system, Mahindra has taken advantage of the tax incentives offered by the NEMMP (National Electric Mobility Mission Plan), as reflected by its competitive pricing. As mild-hybrid diesel-powered vehicles are exempted from NGT’s crackdown, the Intelli-Hybrid system is likely to make the Mahindra Scorpio more appealing.
