Mahindra & Mahindra's popular SUV Scorpio will now be available only in manual transmission, as the automaker has quietly discontinued the automatic variant.

"The Automatic has been discontinued", the company tweeted on Sunday, when asked by a user.

M&M Scorpio is powered by 2,179cc, four-cylinder mHawk diesel engine that churns out 120 bhp peak power @ 4,000 rpm and 280 Nm top torque @ 1,800-2,800 rpm.

The six-speed automatic gearbox was sourced from DSI of Australia.

The Scorpio AT, available only in the top trim S10, came in two configurations -- a 2-wheel drive at 13.13 lakh and a 4-wheel drive at 14.33 lakh (ex showroom Delhi).

The AT variant looked just the same as the manual transmission, except for the "Automatic" badge on its tail gate and sides.

Though low sales could be the main reason, some reports say Mahindra wanted to clear all stocks of the old Scorpio before launching a facelift with a new six-speed gearbox sourced from Aisin.

Introduced in the year 2002, the Scorpio has been revised in the years 2006, 2012 and 2014. Mahindra also launched its pick-up version called Scorpio Getaway in June 2007. The 2008-launch Scorpio automatic had a gearbox revision in 2015.
