A report on the Mahindra group on Forbes magazine reveals that the W201 SUV, developed entirely at Mahindra' Research Valley in South India, will be their first stab at Front-wheel drive. The report does not rule out a 4WD variant at some later date. The W201 will have leather interiors and a monocoque body construction. The car will be powered using the Scorpio' 2.2-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine and could produce 138bhp and 320Nm of torque.
There is no clarity on the launch date. Online media reports claim Mahindra will break the surprise by mid-August this year. The W201 could be positioned between 15-20 lakh rupees.
