* Mahindra is becoming safety conscious atleast now. The scorpio which is available with ABS will now get Airbags. Mahindra would equip the top end variants (VLX) with twin airbags. The launch will happen in December or at auto expo

* Following the Scorpio, Mahindra hot selling product Xylo would also get airbags

* The new world class monocoque SUV which Mahindra is developing under the codename W201 is destined to launch in October 2010

* Mahindra’s new SUV is being developed in a highly secretive manner and being tested in Chennai

* The W201 will come up with an advanced CRDe engine

* The W201 might be launched at the same time across globe (India, South Africa and in USA)

* Mahindra has shelved plan of putting of Renault’s petrol engine for W201

* Mahindra is working to develop a indigenous gasoline engine for W201

* The gasoline powered W201 is destined for USA market and Mahindra may consider this engine for Indian market as well

* Mahindra which displayed the thar concept at Bologna Motor Show is working to launch the vehicle as early as 2011. Mahindra Thar Concept is equipped with a modern 4 cylinders 2,500 cc turbodiesel with direct injection, common-rail and intercooler,
producing 107 CV (79 kW), designed by the Austrian company AVL in cooperation with the German Bosch and produced in India.

* For those who are crazy about the civilian version of Axe., we don’t have any good news. There seems to be no breakthrough in the development of civilian axe.

* Mahindra Scorpio Hybrid which was unveiled at the 2008 Delhi Auto Expo is still in boardroom. The cost structure remains a big hurdle and yet to be sorted out

Mahindra has added dual airbags in optional package in addition to ABS in xylo E8 also. They never post any adv. on these security features. But at last they understood these are important now a days.

Good Information Raj.
Except the Airbag thing and World Car, We don't see the confirmed plans of any other product.

This is not so good, I was waiting to see the Axe rolling out on roads.
Once launches, It would take no time to become popular among the true 4x4 and Off-Roading Enthusiasts.

Drive Safe!

Finally, Mahindra Understood the term Safety and as a result, Offered Airbags in both the models.
This is what which was much much missed in this car and some add-ons like Blue-vision headlamps are bonus. At the end, It makes Xylo & Scorpio much more Value For Money.

True, and looks like they have started doing a great job at it now. Way to go, Mahindra.

Scorpio has been one of my favorite vehicles [:)].
