Mahindra & Mahindra has launched its new mild hybrid technology ‘Intelli-Hybrid’ on the Scorpio SUV with the 1.99 Litre mHAWK engine for Delhi and NCR. The Scorpio with Intelli-Hybrid is available with prices starting from INR 9.35 lakh for the S4 model* and will be on sale with immediate effect. Being a mild hybrid, the Scorpio will be sold with a concessional Value Added Tax (VAT) of 5% in Delhi which translates into a benefit of INR 60,000 to INR 90,000 for the customer, depending on the variant purchased.
Intelli-Hybrid is claimed to reduce the fuel consumption by up to 7%. This, by assisting the engine with electric power during acceleration, automatically switching the engine off within 3 seconds of the vehicle being stationary (start-stop) and reusing brake energy, which would otherwise be wasted, to charge the battery.
