Default Mahindra co-developing all-new range of 1.2 - 1.6 L petrol engines with SsangYong

Scoop: Mahindra with Ssyangyong developing petrol engines - from Autocar India

Mahindra is developing an all-new range of petrol engines that will power its future range in India. This new engine range is being co-developed with SsangYong and will also do duty in some of the Korean brand’s future products sold in India and international markets.

This new petrol engine family is expected to include as many as three motors ranging from 1.2 to 1.6 litres in displacement. While most of the engines will be four-cylinder units, the 1.2-litre motor will be a three-cylinder derivative of a larger engine, and will be used in the upcoming Mahindra compact SUV, codenamed S102. The Mahindra S102 is an all-new compact SUV which will be positioned below the Quanto. This engine will also be used by the upcoming SsangYong X100 SUV.

“We are going to launch a new car called X100 which will have a majority of gasoline engines. We are sourcing it with Mahindra; this new four-cylinder engine will be converted to a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder for the S102 by Mahindra,” said Yoo Il Lee, SsangYong president and CEO.

To keep costs low, common parts will be used across this new engine range, which is being developed for Euro VI application and beyond. While the engine development is co-operation between Mahindra and its Korean affiliate, it’s the parent company that will take the lead in this ambitious programme. Hence, the bulk of development will be carried out at Mahindra Research Valley (MRV), the company’s state-of-the-art R&D facility outside Chennai. Engine specialists AVL of Austria are believed to be consultants for this project.
The AutocarIndia link:


For decades, since the late 1970's, (the Hurricane Jeep engine manufacture was stopped and made to order deliveries only done) Mahindra vouched for diesel technology, whether it was technology from International Harvester, Peugeot or Renault. The Ford Escort (petrol and diesels) were assembled in the M & M plant at Igatpuri (Mah).
Now with the price differential narrowing down, M & M are again reverting back to petrol engines, evidently to see better sales, acceptablility and ultimately better balance sheets.

Default Re: Mahindra learns from Honda, Going the Petrol way

During the launch of the TUV300, Mahindra has officially announced that they will be bringing out petrol options in their entire SUV lineup in the next few years.

The petrol powerplants, which Mahindra has developed in-house in collaboration with Ssangyong, will be available in a variety of displacements.

At the moment, Mahindra has developed 3 petrol engines - 1.2L, 1.6L & 2.0L - which will see use in the TUV300, the Quanto, the Scorpio & even the XUV500.

The smallest will be a 1.2-litre motor that will be in accordance to the sub 4-meter excise benefits rule. Expect this to be available in the newly launched TUV300 and the Quanto and also in the other smaller SUV that Mahindra is planning to launch soon.

The other engines will be a 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre motor that will be available on the likes of the Mahindra Scorpio and the XUV500. The 1.6-litre engine will be the same engine that has just been introduced on the SsangYong Tivoli in the European market. The top of the line 2.0-litre engine will possibly only be seen in the Mahindra XUV500 and will probably be turbocharged to provide more power.
