Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

To replace the current model that is sold for INR 13.13 Lakhs (ex-showroom).

At the launch of the Mahindra XUV500 AT yesterday, a company executive had divulged plans of introducing the new 6-speed Aisin automatic gearbox in the Mahindra Scorpio as well.

The new 6-speed Aisin automatic gearbox promises to offer smoother gear shifts with reduced transmission losses.

Speaking to Autocar India, Hemant Sikka, Executive Vice President & Chief Purchasing Officer, Automotive and Farm Sectors said:

A transmission similar to the one used in the XUV500 can be adapted in the Mahindra Scorpio in the future. With Aisin, we have gone for a long-term relationship. Going ahead, our first preference will be Aisin for all our new projects, depending on their torque values.

It’s unclear as to when the new gearbox will be introduced on the Mahindra Scorpio, as the Scorpio with the 6-speed automatic unit sourced from Drivetrain Systems International (DSI) was launched in July this year at INR 13.13 Lakhs (ex-showroom).

Compared to the XUV500, the Mahindra Scorpio has a traditional ladder frame chassis and a longitudinally-mounted engine. The Aisin gearbox promises to offer smoother gear shifts with reduced transmission losses, and greater fuel efficiency with the help of optimized gear ratios.
