Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), the homegrown automaker, has hiked the cost of its Scorpio-N SUV in India once again. The SUV has seen a price increase for the second time in the last four months. The Mahindra Scorpio-N is now Rs 51,299 more expensive as a result of the most recent hike. The SUV's base Z2 petrol model is currently priced at Rs 13.06 lakh (ex-showroom). While the SUV's diesel model has a starting price of Rs 13.56 lakh (ex-showroom). The highest-end Z8L 4WD 7-seater model costs Rs 24.51 lakh (ex-showroom). The Scorpio-N's price was first raised in January this year. At that time, the SUV's price was hiked in the range between Rs 15,000 and Rs 1.01 lakh. Recently, the company also raised the Thar's price in the country by up to Rs 1.05 lakh. For the price increase, the automaker has not provided any specific reason. However, BS6 2.0 updates are frequently linked to price increases, according to industry reports. Meanwhile, the famed Thar off-roader hit a production milestone of 1 lakh units in India, the firm announced last month.
