For quite some time, Mahindra & Mahindra has been eyeing the US market with their pick ups based on the Scorpio and Xylo.
Now, the Indian firm best known for it’s range of tough off roaders and the Scorpio SUV has finally decided to launch a heavily re engineered version of it’s best seller, the Scorpio SUV. Mahindra will start selling the Scorpio SUV in the United States sometime later this year.
The Scorpio to be sold in the US will feature a monocoque body and a few changes to the existing range of diesel power plants. Though the Scorpio SUV will be dwarfed by the big, beefy SUVs that are so common in the US, Mahindra will position the Scorpio as a budget SUV and expects it to make quite a splash due to it’s stellar fuel economy.
In these times of growing fuel prices and a dull American economy that is still licking it’s wounds, we feel that the economical Mahindra Scorpio SUV could find more than a few takers. Go Mahindra, Go!
