The Z101 has been designed in Mahindra India Design Studio in Mumbai and engineered at the facilities of Mahindra research valley in Chennai.

Anand Mahindra’s tweet regarding Scorpio launch
Just a few hours back, Anand Mahindra gave a witty response to one Twitter user who asked him regarding new Scorpio’s launch date. Mahindra not only tackled the question smartly but also came up with a witty reply. In response to the user’s question, Anand Mahindra replied, ‘Sshhhh. If I tell you, I’ll be fired… But I can say this much..I’m as excited as you are…’.. However, nobody could have expected that the first teaser would be just a couple of hours away from this very tweet.
What you see above is the Scorpio’s first images from Mahindra’s official website. We can clearly see that the new Scorpio will come with LED projector headlamps for low beam and LED lamps for high beam. Slanting LED indicators will be integrated below the main headlamp setup. We can also see LED fog lamps in the image. The fog lamp housing is surrounded by LED DRLs.
The Scorpio will get a complete design makeover over the current model. It will be based on the new ladder-on-frame chassis that underpins the new Thar. Other design changes will include a new front grille and LED tail lamps. In the interior, we have a new dashboard layout with leather seats. The new Scorpio will come with six and seven-seater options.
Mahindra will load the Scorpio with a lot of new features. Spy shots of the Scorpio have revealed some features that we can expect. It will get a big infotainment system, steering mounted controls, an electric sunroof, connected car technology, rear-disc brakes and connected car technology.
