Last year Mahindra saw a huge success with the launch of the all new Scorpio, which was highly appreciated by critics and buyers alike across India. It even played a vital role in increasing the sales figure of Mahindra for 2014. Moreover, they also plan to introduce more stylish and modern looking vehicles in the coming year.
