Hello Mani ..
Scorpio automatic was expected in the early 2015. The Scorpio was updated but the automatic gearbox was never offered. At present, it is not clear if the automatic transmission will ever be offered. The company has no plans to offer an automatic gearbox at present.
One of the main shortcomings of this SUV is the absence of automatic gearbox options in any of its trims. The Automatic gearbox is very useful for a new driver. This feature allows him to concentrate fully on the road and not be distracted by changing the gears regularly. This feature comes in handy even in heavy traffic, where the driver has to focus fully on the road to negotiate the traffic properly. Unfortunately, the company has no plans to introduce this useful feature in the near future.
Mahindra Scorpio is an SUV and the company has decided to field only the manual gearbox option for all the trims of this vehicle to let the driver feel the real driving experience all the time. The 5 speed manual gearbox of this vehicle allows the driver to have more control over the vehicle. In addition, it also improves the fuel efficiency and reduces the cost of the vehicle. There is no plan from the company to introduce automatic transmission gearbox option for this model in the foreseeable future.
As my friend quoted in his review, the automatic transmission variant was expected to launch in the early 2015, but as of now there is no news from Mahindra to launch the automatic variant. It is now expected to launch in 2016. The game of SUV market will sure changewith introduction of this automatic variant.
