Mahindra & Mahindra recorded its highest ever monthly sales volume of 64,486 vehicles in September. The company’s quarterly sales of 179,673 vehicles were up 77 percent from last year. These impressive sales figures are driven by strong demand for its sports utility vehicles and the company has now secured the number one position in the SUV segment.
Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra has now reacted to his company’s impressive growth. The business tycoon tweeted an old photo of the first Scorpio launch in 2002 and revealed that the Scorpio Classic received the highest September bookings among all cars in Mahindra’s lineup.

Mahindra’s SUVs like Scorpio-N, XUV700, Thar, Bolero Neo and Scorpio Classic have seen a great response in the market. Additionally, the Scorpio Classic is very popular among car enthusiasts.
Due to its popularity, the company has repackaged the Scorpio as the Scorpio Classic and continues to sell it alongside the all-new Scorpio-N. It is Mahindra’s most popular SUV and is instantly preferred by buyers over any other SUV due to its legendary character. The SUV has developed a loyal fan base over the years due to its off-road capabilities and practicality.
The Scorpio Classic comes with a new tweaked front end with ‘Twin-peak’ logo and LED DRLs. The cabin gets a new 9-inch infotainment system and a black and beige interior theme.
The SUV also gets a refreshed rear profile and new 17-inch alloy wheels that enhance its road presence.
The Scorpio Classic is only available with the new 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel. The same powertrain is seen in twenty variants of the Scorpio-N and the second generation Thar. It produces 130 bhp of power and 300 Nm of torque while mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
