Although I don't much about this car and therfore I shouldn't be commenting, but I do feel they should have designed a new tail lamp. Putting the original scorpio lamps is taking corner-cutting a bit to far, especially when this is meant for export market, which, if I am not mistaken, also includes the highly cometitive American market.

I doubt Scopio pickup will be for the American market. It will spoil M & M name, before the launch of the XUV500, that is their primary international vehicle.

Scorpio pickup is present in south africa already with a 2.49L diesel engine. I believe the mHAWK vehicle is being tested for african and asian markets.

But wasn't there a problem between M&M dealers in US and M&M because the delay in launch of a commercial vehicle by M&M was causing them significant loses. I thought that M&M were suppose to launch the scorpio pick up in USA.

Also, isn't Scorpio pick-up available in Australia too. I remember a fellow Bhpian had uploaded a picture of a scorpio pick-up in Australia. Unfortunately, I don't even remember who had posted the picture and where he had posted it!

Not sure what the latest update is on the W408 which was developed for the US as a valur-for-money alternative to larger more expensive pick up trucks. M&M got the 2.2L engine certified to comply with Tier 2 Bin 5, which ( two years ago ) was the most stringent norm in the US (Cali, I guess). I recall that it was the third diesel engine after the mercedes blu tec and the VW TDI to clear pass this emission test and was a real shot in the arm for M&Ms global ambitions.

The Scorpio Pick-up is being exported from a long time. The dual cab version in India is known as the Getaway ( which I have ). And IIRC the mHawk Pickup, both single and dual cab has been in existence for some time now.

That makes sense perfectly since it may still be an international product may be for the South Africa and Sri Lanka market itself and yes it is a right hand drive country.

Also Mahindra launched a Genio variant for the export market with the mHawk engine. Read link below. Since the front end of the pic was not visible it might have been a Genio cab as well!

If it really is a scorpio front end, its silly. Please Mahindra why do you do this, was Getaway not enough.

If ever Mahindra buys Mercedes, it will launch a DI version of G-wagon and a pickup version of S class.

When Mahindras launched their 6-8 seater plane, I wondered whether it would be powered by a DI engine. Then maybe a pickup version to suit the masses.

I take strong exception to that statement. Its a very well thought out and utilitarian vehicle and I as a fanboy of the Getaway will not hear any abuse.

Cheers
