The Mahindra Scorpio-N was launched in India last month alongside the facelifted Mahindra Scorpio Classic in the Indian market. Since its launch, the cars have been creating sales records for the UV manufacturer. Now the facelifted avatar of the popular Indian SUV has made top boss, Mahindra CEO Anand Mahindra proud by achieving the “highest incremental bookings for the month among all cars”. Sharing the news on micro-blogging site Twitter, the business tycoon recalled the launch of the first Scorpio, which was brought to the Indian market in 2002. In the tweet, he also shared a picture of himself with the MY2002 SUV.
Sharing the tweet on the social media platform, Anand Mahindra said, “It’s been a good September. But what was unexpectedly surprising was that among all the cars the highest booking for the month was the Scorpio Classic. Was for! Launch of the first Scorpio in 2002. Old is clearly gold.”

The exact booking numbers of the Mahindra Scorpio Classic are unknown, but considering the tweet, it must be a significant number. The Mahindra Scorpio Classic’s trailing numbers can be summed up in the legacy and seems to carry on, even when sold alongside the new Scorpio-N. However, this is not a problem for Scorpio-N as it has set a record of getting 1 lakh bookings within just 30 minutes of its launch.

Adding to this, the prices of the Mahindra Scorpio Classic are slightly lower than the Scorpio-N. The Classic has a starting price of Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom) in the Indian market, which is around Rs 50,000 less than the Scorpio-N.
Moreover, the SUV’s updates make it an attractive proposition. A new and larger 9-inch touchscreen entertainment system, along with a new dual-tone black and beige trim, have been added to the cabin. Additionally, there is a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a semi-digital instrument cluster, a multi-function leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and a choice of second-row captain’s seats. Two variants of the SUV are available: Classic S and S11. Only the highest-end model gets most of the features. Adding toppings to the cake, it also gets the proven 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine that churns out 130 bhp and 300 Nm of torque.
