Mahindra has been very proactive with their products and the company has been updating its range of vehicles at the earliest in the market. Even though the Scorpio facelift due for launch this year is still in the testing phase, the company has commenced work on the next generation Scorpio. The second generation Mahindra Scorpio prototype was spotted testing by Motor Vikatan reader Mr. Jeyavel near Mahindra’s R&D centre in Chennai and is most likely to be launched in 2016.
The rear picture shows a side hinged door which will accommodate the spare wheel of the SUV. Thanks to the lack of a rear bumper on this prototype, we are able to spot a differential indicating that the new Scoprio will have a 4×4 version, if not a standard rear wheel drive layout.
The new Scorpio is reported to be based on a monocoque chassis. As of now, the engines powering it remain unknown.
