Default Mahindras - Customized - Scorpio Passion & CEO, Bolero - Inspira & Commando

Does anyone have any additional details about these customized Mahindras that are put up on the http://www.mahindrascorpio.com/concept website. There is a link which says "Bookings Open" however no prices are given.

I think the Bolero Commando (am very interested in this ...and of course the site doesnt have any details. This reminds me of the Hummer H3 SUT - much smaller of course) and the Bolero Inspira are vehicles I would love to see on the road ...of course with some bigger tyres !
The Scorpio Passion & CEO dont look bad either.

Is there a way you can contact these blokes. When i tried the local Mahindra dealership, they said they had no idea of what a Bolero-Commando or a Bolero-Inspira was?!?

Hey Bro, I saw the Bolero Inspira and Commando at the Times Auto Show in Mumbai. Didn't see any modified Scorpio.

The guy there said 8.6 lakhs OTR Mumbai for the Commando (the black one). Basically it's 6 lakhs for the base model, and then 2.6 lakhs to modd it. The dude said the company gets all the mods done for you.

Cheers.

Bro, can you post a few pics please.. What do you think about the commando, apart from the looks.. Do you have the contact details of those blokes.. I am surprised that these guys did not even bother to provide a phone number at the website.

Hey sorry, don't have any pics. I did have the contact number on a flier at one time. However, my house is a black hole, and things get mysteriously lost once my bro-in-law gets his hands on them.

I only got to see the Commando from the outside because the Mahindra guys refused to to open it. What I did see was that they've gone a pretty good job on the exteriors and what could be seen of the interiors - the finish levels were pretty good for a non-Scorpio Mahindra. The Commando is definitely a macho-looking monster, with loads of chrome, tons of foglights, big tyres and the works. From what I've seen, they've taken a few design cues from the Humvee H2, like the row of hazard lights on the roof.

I was disappointed, however, when I asked about the engine. It's the same, tired old donkey of a turbodiesel that they shove in all their jeeps besides the Scorpio. So don't expect it to perform as good as it looks. Not by a long, long way.

I love jeeps and have had Gypsies for many years, but IMHO, 8.6 lakhs is way more than the Commando is worth.

Saw the CEO version at the AutoExpo.... driver had NO legroom. No option to even slide a seat back.
It would just remain a concept.

Hai,
As per the information furnished on BS Mototing,you have to buy the Normal Scoprio\Bolero GLX\Invader and then contact M&M for the customisation jobs.BS mototing had quoted the customisation job would cost 2lacs in addition to the actual vehicle price.All warranty will hold as usual,as the job is carried out by M&M themselves.
Regards,
raj

Gosh, some of the Jeeps look totally fab! Good job by Mahindras but I suggest:

1. Plonking the powerful Scorpio engine in the Bolero variants too.

2. Commitment : Dont make this another 3 month initiative which will eventually die down. Have a separate team (something like the Ford SVT) to handle this department.

3. Educate. Dealerships and service stations.

4. Market. Create awareness. Will do wonders to Mahindras image.
