India’s largest SUV manufacturer, Mahindra, recently introduced an impressive concept vehicle – the Global Pik Up off-roader based on the Scorpio-N – during its annual Independence Day event in South Africa. This all-new concept, a variant of the Mahindra Pik Up, is built upon the new Mahindra Scorpio-N platform and incorporates numerous enhancements to elevate its off-road capabilities.
Accompanying the debut was a teaser video showcasing the Global Pik Up navigating challenging terrains with ease. The animation provides a detailed look at the concept vehicle, highlighting its notably more aggressive design compared to the Mahindra Scorpio-N.
Designed at the Mahindra India Design Studio (MIDS), the 2025 Global Pik Up draws inspiration from the Scorpio-N model, featuring shared elements like the headlights, bonnet, fenders, and front doors. However, significant design modifications have transformed this SUV into a distinct offering.
The Mahindra Global Pik Up boasts a robust front bumper with a prominent bash-plate and strategically positioned tow hooks. Its assertive front grille reinforces the rugged design, and a dedicated water wading snorkel enhances its off-road capabilities.
The side profile of the Scorpio-N-based Global Pik Up continues the theme of strength. While some similarities with the Scorpio-N are evident, the design has been extensively revised. The addition of sturdy step ladders and thicker black cladding contributes to its rugged appearance. The dual-cab design showcases a load bed with a unique lying buttress design, made possible by extending the standard Mahindra Scorpio-N wheelbase.
At the rear, the Pik Up exhibits a compact tailgate featuring the embossed Mahindra logo. The lower bumper, finished in metal, incorporates two tow hooks flanking the number plate. The newly designed all-LED taillights provide a modern touch to the rear aesthetics.
Beneath its rugged exterior, the Global Pik Up employs a ‘next-generation ladder-frame‘ platform meticulously engineered to excel in Global NCAP and Euro NCAP safety assessments. The model is expected to introduce new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features, connectivity options, and a prominent sunroof, alongside a completely revamped interior.
In terms of powertrain, Mahindra confirms that the model will house a Gen-II all-aluminum mHawk diesel engine upon launch. This engine will be coupled with a choice of a 6-speed manual or an Aisin-sourced 6-speed automatic transmission, delivering a balance of power and efficiency. Detailed performance figures are yet to be disclosed. The model will also offer 4WD capability and shift-on-the-fly functionality.
