As per the co website http://www.mahindrascorpio.com/scorp.../html/html.asp:

"Optional : Borg-Warner Electric 4WD System(7 Seater,BS II only)"
is available in
"Turbo 2.6 DX" only

I'm was looking for any owner's feedback. I felt it was a better package other 4wd offerings.

Our company does have a 4x4 Scorpio. They do not sell them off the shelf but has to be ordered.

What info are you looking for specifically?

Hi Rtech!

I was basically looking for some ownership experiences. There are plenty with the regular version but I was interested in the 4wd version.
I'm gererally wary of buying things where I might be in a small minority as:
1. The manufacturer wouldn't have had enough feedback to iron out all the bugs
2. The service people wouldn't have much experience with the product

On the other hand, I would get a true-blue SUV with a real go-anywhere capability!

Im guessing you work in M&M....

Default Scorpio 4X4

Hello,
I had the oppurtunity of taking a Scorpio 4WD off-the-road.
Checkout http://jeepthrillsindia.fotopic.net/c659359.html

Its a very powerful vehicle, but the drawbacks are.
1) Size & Weight
2) IFS - 4WD

Keepin' Jeepin'

Arka

PS- I'm not driving the scorpio ;-)
