Mahindra as a carmaker is loved in the country. Mahindra cars are known for their solid build quality and sturdy road presence. However, the brand is not just limited to India. Mahindra sells cars in markets like South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, etc. Also, the products are decided based on the requirements and the market needs. Due to this, there are a few products that are available in foreign markets but are not made available here. Today, we are talking about one such product, the Mahindra Scorpio Pickup. This car is available in a market like South Africa. In this article, we will briefly look at the Mahindra Scorpio Pickup truck.
The Mahindra Scorpio pickup truck (called Scorpio Pikup in South Africa) gets the same front fascia as the regular SUV. However, being a pickup makes the difference in the cabin and the rear. The car is available as a single cab and a dual cab. Both cars are available with a large bed at the rear that offers a maximum payload capacity of 1200kg (single cab) and 1000kg (double cab). The trucks also get a 2500kg braked towing capacity. Also, the Scorpio pickup comes with tail lamps that were made available with the first version of this SUV. With that being said, Mahindra has also made available variants known as ‘Karoo’ which look really mean. These variants get black alloy wheels, roll bar, rain deflectors, front nudge bar and Tonneau cover.
