Reacting to the ban of diesel cars of above 2000cc in Delhi, Mahindra has launched new 2.0-liter diesel engine variants under the displacement of 2000cc in Delhi NCR. The new mHawk engine will be powering the XUV500 and Scorpio range of vehicles and they are currently available in Delhi and rest of the NCR regions.
Speaking on this occasion, Pravin Shah, President and Chief Executive (Automotive), Mahindra & Mahindra said, “This new engine, the development of which started in August 2014, is now ready for launch on both the New Generation Scorpio and the New Age XUV500. We do hope that our customers would enjoy driving these vehicles which deliver the performance of our currently on offer 2.2-litre mHawk engines.”
As for specifications, we don’t have the exact figures right now, however, the engine is good to deliver 120 horsepower in Scorpio and 140 horsepower in XUV500. The Supreme Court has banned the registrations of the new diesel cars with displacement over 2000cc until the 31st of March. The introduction of new diesel engine might be an advantage to the company, at least, for the next two months.
