Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd 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 ex-showroom price of Rs 12.84 lakh (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 per cent 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.
Speaking about the introduction of Scorpio with Intelli-Hybrid, Pravin Shah, President & Chief Executive (Automotive), Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd said, “As an organisation that places keen emphasis on sustainability and eco-friendly practices, across every process and product, we are proud to introduce mild hybrid technology on the Scorpio. By reducing fuel consumption, Intelli-Hybrid helps Scorpio owners contribute towards a cleaner and greener tomorrow.”
To begin with, Intelli-Hybrid has been made available on the following variants of Scorpio with the 2.2 litre mHAWK engine: S4, S4+, S4+ 4wd, S6+, S8, S10-2WD (Manual Transmission) and S10-4WD (Manual Transmission).
