Default Mahindra begins testing BS-VI compliant engines

Test mules of the XUV500, TUV300, Bolero and Supro with "BSVI-D" decals have been spotted testing, indicating that Mahindra has started road trials of its BS-VI compliant diesel engines. An image of an XUV300 with a BS6 sticker has also surfaced online.

Reports suggest that Mahindra is developing a new BS-VI compliant 2.0-litre diesel engine that is expected to power the next generation Scorpio among other models. The next generation Thar is expected to dump its 2.5-litre diesel for a BS-VI compliant 2.0-litre unit. The XUV300 is also expected to get BS-VI compliant petrol and diesel engines.

The BS-VI diesel engines are reported to get selective catalytic converters, diesel particulate filter and exhaust gas re-circulation. The new emission regulations will come into force in April 2020.

This is great. So the 2.2L unit can be made BS6 complaint . If this is true , then the next generation XUV is still sometime away. They will manage the BS6 transition with the current model itself.

Let these manufacturers cry all they want about how BS6-compliance is going to increase their costs by over a lakh. That's a load of bull. It would've apparently cost VW just about $400 (according to this book) to meet the even stricter emission norms in the USA (including California).

BS6, bring it on .

I believe Mahindra will not charge premium for BS-VI modifications. Especially not for XUV300, which is already over-priced.

But it is nice to see Mahindra is leading the pack and trying to bring things to table before it's too late!
