Mahindra & Mahindra: Cruising the Indian Cityscape in the Scorpio SUV

New York Times Editor, Nick Kurczewski, travled to Mumbai for a drive in the domestic version of the Mahindra Scorpio SUV. The article was posted on the Mahindra North America official website a few weeks ago, but it’s worth a look if you haven’t seen it before.

Kurczewski relays his experience on how the Scorpio worked around the streets of India’s densely populated capital city. He also speaks with Global Vehicles (the official US importer) John Perez and gets some insight into Mahindra’s thoughts on the US market and how they are positioning themselves with their unique vehicles to create a niche and prosper in a global economic downturn.

The article is light on an actual performance evaluation, but it’s a nice piece on Mahindra and the potential of the brand in the US. Obviously, MahindraPlanet thinks there is a place for a heavy duty small truck that gets 30mpg. We are eagerly awaiting our TR test drive on US soil!
