2020 Mahindra Scorpio and Mahindra XUV500 have been seen doing rounds in almost production-ready avatars. This time around, reports surfacing the internet confirm Mahindra is all set to introduce the two new SUVs, 2020 Scorpio and XUV500 in fiscal 2021 i.e come April 2020. 

That effectively should imply the new generations of the SUVs will replace the current Scorpio and XUV500 on sale, however, with the BSVI compliant test mule spotted in the country hints at the co-existence of both the generations of the Mahindra XUV500's but in different price brackets. But the current Mahindra Scorpio on sale could possibly be phased out before the deadline closes in and the SUV could not see the light of day in BSVI era.

Given Mahindra is one of the attendees at the 2020 Auto Expo which will be held in February, there is a very high probability to see the next-gen Mahindra Scorpio (codenamed Z101) and the next-gen Mahindra XUV500 (W601) in the flesh at Mahindra's pavilion. That said, The second-generation Mahindra Thar (codenames W501) which has been spotted a number of times across the country is also a part of Mahindra's BSVI upgrade plan. Expect to see the new Mahindra Thar in the flesh at the 2020 Auto Expo.

The next-generation SUVs will be based on an all-new platform and will be equipped with BSVI compliant diesel engine. And be well suited to rival the new competition in the market such as the Kia Seltos, MG Hector, Tata Harrier and the Jeep Compass. Like the Mahinda XUV300, the next generation Mahindra XUV500 will see some inputs from the Ssangyong and is rumoured to be based on the Korando.

"The customers' tastes are changing very rapidly and the competitive intensity is rising with many entrants looking at India as the primary market with products," Pawan Goenka, MD, Mahindra and Mahindra. "Therefore, for us to remain where we are, we have to do a lot more with the products, because of the technology pressure, customer pressure and competition pressure." he added.

Following the SUVs, Mahindra has plans to pull its socks up and introduce a compact sedan based on the Ford Aspire. It could be the Indian manufacturer second stint at making Compact sedans after the Mahindra Verito and could be the first product after Mahindra announced its joint venture with Ford. The upcoming compact sedan could give the manufacturer better leverage against its rivals slicing the larger piece of sales pie such as the Maruti Suzuki Dzire and the soon expected Hyundai Aura. The end of the next financial year shall see the electric version of the Mahinda XUV300 pitching it right next to the Tata Nexon EV that will soon make a debut along with the eKUV100 EV SUV.
