Mahindra has increased the prices of the Scorpio-N model, nearly six months after its launch. The new version of the ladder-on-frame Scorpio, which sits above the Scorpio Classic, is now Rs 15,000-Rs 1.01 lakh more expensive. The new prices, which include price hikes across the entire Scorpio-N range, have recently gone into effect. Following the price increase, the base petrol Scorpio-N is now priced at Rs 12.74 lakh (ex-showroom), while the top-tier diesel automatic with 4WD costs Rs 24.05 lakh (ex-showroom). For the uninitiated, the Scorpio N's initial price point was Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom) when it launched in June of last year. The price increase implemented by Mahindra starts with the Scorpio-N's petrol-powered variants and ranges from Rs 15,000 to Rs 75,000. Z2 MT, Z2 E MT, Z4 MT, Z4 E MT, and Z4 AT, all of which are now more expensive by Rs 75,000, have borne the brunt of the price increase the most. The Z8 MT and Z8 AT are now Rs 65,000 more expensive than they were previously, but the Z8 L MT is now up to Rs 55,000 more expensive. For the Z8 L AT variant, the most recent price increase of Rs 15,000 is applicable.

Regarding the Mahindra Scorpio-N's diesel-powered models, the Z2 MT, Z2 E MT, Z4 MT, Z4 E MT, Z4 AT, Z4 MT 4WD, and Z4 E MT 4WD cost an additional Rs 75,000. The Z6 and Z8 variants are Rs 65,000 more expensive in the petrol and automatic versions, and the Z8 AT 4WD is similarly costlier. The Z8 MT 4WD, however, has seen the largest price increase across the entire Scorpio-N lineup, rising by Rs 1.01 lakh. The Z8 L AT RWD and Z8 L AT 4WD have incurred the smallest price increases of Rs 15,000, while the Z8 L MT rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions are more expensive by Rs 55,000.

This price increase was unavoidable because the earlier prices at which the Mahindra Scorpio-N was launched were introductory. Mahindra had already announced a price increase across the entire Scorpio-N lineup, which finally took effect this month. The Mahindra Scorpio-N was launched in the third quarter of 2022 and immediately set sales records, with waiting times of up to a year. The Scorpio-N was introduced with two engine options: a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. The petrol engine generates 200bhp of maximum power and 380Nm of peak torque in manual and automatic variants, respectively.

Diesel-powered models of the Scorpio-N, however, account for the majority of sales. In the base models, the 2.2-litre diesel engine is rated at 130bhp and 300Nm of peak torque. In the higher-spec models, though, the same engine generates 173bhp of power along with 370Nm or 400Nm of claimed torque for the manual and automatic versions, respectively. There are 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission options for both the gasoline and diesel engine choices, and some variants of the diesel engine also offer an additional four-wheel drive system as an option.

Mahindra has prioritised delivering the Scorpio N's higher-end variants since its launch and has only recently started doing so for the mid-level variants. All other variants currently command a waiting period of up to 25 months, depending on the location, with the exception of the top-spec Z8L variant, which has a waiting period of about four months.
