The Scorpio’s design is the result of a collaborative process between Pininfarina in Italy and Mahindra India Design Studio (MIDS) in Mumbai, India. The engineering and development of this SUV was undertaken by teams at Mahindra Research Valley (MRV) in India and Mahindra North American Technical Center (MNATC) in the USA.
