Mahindra has announced that the Intelli Hybrid system is now available in the Mahindra Scorpio 1.99L, which is sold exclusively in Delhi NCR. They haven’t revealed updated prices, but confirmed that it starts at INR 9.35 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
So far the Intelli-Hybrid system was exclusive to the Scorpio 2.2L sold nation-wide. It replaces Mahindra’s Micro-hybrid features (start-stop motor), and is fitted as standard in all grades equipped with the mHawk engine and 5-speed manual gearbox (S4, S4+, S4+ 4WD, S6+, S8, S10-2WD and S10-4WD). The base S2 grade with the 2.5L m2DICR engine and Scorpio Automatic aren’t equipped with Intelli-Hybrid.
Intelli-Hybrid comprises of 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. It is claimed to reduce fuel consumption by up to 7 percent.
Another advantage brought by the mild hybrid system is the tax incentive offered by the NEMMP (National Electric Mobility Mission Plan). This helped lower the pricing of the base Scorpio 1.99L by around INR 64,000.
