The Mahindra Scorpio is an important name for the homegrown carmaker. The Scorpio brand name has been in existence for over two decades now. Recently, the company has launched the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N in the Indian market, which is the third-gen avatar of the SUV. Alongside, the automaker has also updated the original Scorpio, which will now be sold as the Mahindra Scorpio Classic.
