M&M announces Scorpio with Intelli-Hybrid technology for Delhi, NCR market
Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) on Tuesday announced its SUV Scorpio with Intelli-Hybrid technology for the Delhi and NCR market, at a starting price of Rs 9.35 lakh (ex-showroom).
Its sports utility vehicle (SUV) Scorpio with Intelli-Hybrid technology will have 1.99 litre mHAWK engine and will be on sale with immediate effect.
“Being a mild hybrid, the Scorpio will be sold with a concessional value added tax (VAT) of 5% in Delhi, which translates into a benefit of Rs 60,000 to Rs 90,000 for the customer, depending on the variant purchased,” Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) said in a press release.
“As an organisation that puts keen emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly practices, across every process and product, we are delighted to introduce mild-hybrid technology on the Scorpio,” M&M's president and chief executive Pravin Shah said in a statement.
By reducing fuel consumption, Intelli-Hybrid helps Scorpio owners contribute towards a cleaner and greener Delhi and NCR, he further added.
According to M&M, Intelli-Hybrid reduces fuel consumption by up to 7% by assisting the engine with electric power during acceleration, automatically switching the engine off within three seconds of the vehicle being stationary (start-stop) and reusing brake energy, which would otherwise be wasted, to charge the battery.
The Intelli-Hybrid technology will come up with the 1.99 litre mHAWK engine on S4, S4+, S4+ 4wd, S6+, S8, S10-2WD (manual transmission) and S10-4WD (manual transmission) variants of Scorpio.
