Yes, quite true
My Matiz had done a higher daily average (118 pd) than the Scorpio.
Together, both Matiz & Scorpio have done 560,000 kms over 13 years or 4796 days, meaning an average of 117 kms per day over that period.

Got just about 290000 kms more to catch up with your Scorpio

Currently the Odo is at close to 10k kms in past 6 months so avg daily has been a lowly 52 / day considering that my work place is just 5 kms from home

This is something that has definitely increased my faith in Tata Motors. Says a lot about a heavily criticized brand.
I have an Indica Vista for the past 1202 days and it has run 42020 km as of today, which means a mere 35 km per day.

87k kms in a Alto Lxi 2005
76k kms in a 2003 Santro LS Zipdrive

Both vehicles are going strong, although the Santro, being 2nd hand, is showing some signs of tiredness. The Alto has run around 40k kms on CNG
