Mumbai, July 20, 2016: Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., India’s leading SUV manufacturer, today announced the launch of its new mild hybrid technology ‘Intelli-Hybrid’ on the New Generation Scorpio. The Scorpio with Intelli-Hybrid is on offer at an attractive ex-showroom price of Rs.12.84 lac (Navi Mumbai, BS4) for the top-end S10-2WD model, to be available July 2016 onwards.
Intelli-Hybrid 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.
As India’s first SUV with mild hybrid capability, Scorpio continues to be a trend-setter in technology with many ‘firsts’ to its name. Scorpio was India’s first talking car with Voice Messaging System, the first in its class with a CRDe engine and with a 6-speed Automatic Transmission and the first to offer Micro Hybrid start-stop technology.
