Bookings can be made online, with deliveries expected to happen once the COVID19 lockdown ends.
Also, Mahindra has now started offering subscription plans with the Scorpio. These plans start at Rs 31,230 depending on the variant chosen and the subscription time period.

Safety equipment is up to government-mandated standards with the inclusion of dual front airbags, ABS, speed-sensing door locks, high-speed warning and an emergency call function built into the infotainment.
The Scorpio continues to be available with numerous seating options. The S5 version can be had in a 7 or 9-seater configuration, the S7 and S9 trims come in 7 and 7-seater options. The top S11 trim adds a 7-seater version with captain.
