M&M launches Scorpio with Intelli-Hybrid technology at Rs 12.84 lakh
Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) has introduced its new hybrid technology known as 'Intelli-Hybrid' in the new generation Scorpio on Wednesday.
The top-end variant S10-2WD model of Scorpio is priced at Rs 12.84 lakh ex-showroom without octroi in Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra. The model will be available for sale from July this year.
Intelli-Hybrid technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 7% by assisting the engine with electric power during acceleration, automatically switching the engine off while the vehicle is stationary (start-stop) and re-using brake energy, which would otherwise be wasted, to charge the battery, cited the company in a press release on Wednesday.
“As an organisation that places keen emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly practices, across every process and product, we are proud to introduce mild hybrid technology on the Scorpio. By reducing fuel consumption, Intelli-Hybrid helps Scorpio owners contribute towards a cleaner and greener tomorrow,” said Mahindra and Mahindra's president and chief executive (Automotive) Pravin Shah in a statement.
The Intelli-Hybrid technology has been made available on the following variants of Scorpio, with the 2.2 Litre mHAWK engine: S4, S4+, S4+ 4wd, S6+, S8, S10-2WD (manual transmission) and S10-4WD (manual transmission), it said.
