Default 2-Door Mahindra Scorpio pickup spotted testing

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this page!

A test mule of the single cab version of the Mahindra Scorpio pickup truck has been spotted testing on the Hyderabad-Bangalore highway.

At present, Mahindra has the Scorpio Getaway, which is a double cab pickup truck on sale in the Indian market. In terms of design, the single cab variant is based on the third-generation Scorpio. The front gets a dual barrel headlamp setup, a redesigned bumper and a tweaked bonnet. The tail lights used on the spotted model are from the older model, and not the clear lens units found on the third-gen Scorpio.

The interiors of the single cab pickup are likely to be carried over from the Scorpio as well and under the skin, the pickup is expected to get a reworked chassis and suspension like its SUV sibling.

It may be recalled that the double cab version of the third-generation Scorpio was spotted testing last year. Therefore, it is likely that Mahindra will launch the new Scorpio Getaway in the single as well as double cab variants at the same time.

The new Getaway pickup is likely to be powered by the BS-IV compliant mHawk 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 120 BHP and 280 Nm of torque. However, there are rumours that the vehicle could get the mHawk engine from the XUV 500, which makes 140 BHP.

A cheap pickup truck could also enjoy success in the USA; Mahindra could pretty much be the only low-budget workhorse there. Plus, Mahindras are built for overloading and are very abuse-friendly, making them perfectly suited to the rural areas. The only challenge would be making it road-legal in the USA (strict emission + safety standards).

OT: - Couldn't help noticing that while the protoshop guys have masked all the badges at the rear, they have left the monogram on the grille and the steering wheel, the most prominent ones untouched.

I see quite a few of these Scorpio pick ups in Italy, their low asking price makes them appealing for small farmers. They are not facelifted though like in the picture.

Wonder what is Mahindra even trying to hide with this camouflage ?

On second thoughts, may be they are thinking that the camouflage graphics are an integral testing element / statutory requirement for cars under test ?

Or maybe it's an attempt to let people know that it's actually a real test mule and not just another weird & wacky mod job by DC or the likes.
