March 6th, 2009 - 8:30 pm ICT by IANS  

New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) Auto major Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) Friday launched an upgraded variant of its popular sports utility vehicle (SUV) Scorpio at a price range of Rs.721,000 to Rs.999,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The new model, with changes in its exteriors including headlight, bumpers and side doors, comes at a time when Mahindra along with auto makers worldwide is reeling from slowing sales and rising input costs.

Mahindra’s vice-president for sales Arun Malhotra told reporters here that the company had been under tremendous pressure during the second half of 2008.

He, however, added that a rise in sales this February was encouraging.

“The sentiment has improved lately and the market seems to be revving up, but all is not fine as of now. We have seen improvement in the last one-and-a-half months but still nothing can be predicted about the trends in the coming months,” Malhotra said.
