2022 Mahindra Scorpio bookings will open on 30th July, deliveries start from 26th Sep 2022 – 20k production planned this year
2022 Mahindra Scorpio was launched after twenty years of Scorpio legacy. But as we found out in our compact SUV sales chart, previous gen Scorpio is a cash cow just like the Bolero. Even today. So, Mahindra is still keeping it around with the new name, Scorpio Classic. It is just like what GTA 5 is to Rockstar Games.
When the Big-Daddy was launched, it had a very attractive entry price point of just Rs. 11.99 lakh. But that price is introductory and is reserved for the first 25,000 bookings only. Mahindra had not revealed the prices for automatic variants and 4WD variants which were set to reveal on a further date. That further date is today and Mahindra has revealed the pricing for all of their variants, completing the puzzle.
