IAB reader spots the Mahindra Jeeto van & Mahindra Scorpio Pik-Up 2017 (Update)


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.

Update: The Mahindra Jeeto van was spied testing with a full body camouflage by our reader Prabakaran, although one can just about see the Ultramarine Blue exterior colour sourced from the Jeeto pick up.

9 May 2017

Both models expected to launch before the end of this year.

IAB reader Prakash Yadav has spied the Mahindra Jeeto van and the Mahindra Scorpio Pik-Up (Getaway) testing in Chennai. The two products are expected to launch in India before the end of this year.

The Mahindra Jeeto passenger application could come equipped with Mahindra’s new ‘Digisense’ connected vehicle platform.

As seen in spyshots previously, the compact five-seater Jeeto LCV has tarpaulin covers for the side doors and rear windscreen, fixed windows for the third-row fixed, round headlamps connected by a sleek plastic grille, and a black plastic bumper. It could also come equipped with Mahindra’s new ‘Digisense’ connected vehicle platform for cloud-based vehicle tracking, engine diagnostics, route planning, breakdown assistance and Geo fencing features.

It will source the Jeeto’s single-cylinder water-cooled m_Dura 625 cc engine diesel paired with a 4-speed manual gearbox, which is capable of producing 16 hp and 38 Nm of torque.

As for the 2017 Mahindra Pik-Up, it will impersonate the SUV with the bolder fascia with new headlamps and grille, while the rear-end looks largely identical to the outgoing model. It could be based on the Scorpio’s hydroformed chassis, thus making it lighter, stronger and stiffer than the current Pik-Up.

The new Pik-Up, if based on the current Scorpio’s hydroformed chassis, could help it secure a higher crash safety score.

Powering the new Pik-Up is a 2.2-litre turbodiesel 4-cyl motor from the Mahindra Scorpio paired to a 5-speed gearbox, which produces 120 bhp and 280 Nm of peak torque. A 4×4 drivetrain will be available as an option in the new Pik-Up, and so could an automatic transmission.
