"We will introduce 7-8 variants in our portfolio," Mahindra & Mahindra Automotive Division Chief Executive Pravin Shah said.

2014 Scorpio facelift is speculated to gain the top spot among these vehicles, which is expected to be unveiled at Auto Expo in February 2014. This facelift variant, which is expected to bring new exteriors as well as interiors, has been tested several times recently. If reports are to be believed, the new Scorpio will also take forward its 2.2 liter mHawk turbo diesel engine.

Mahindra is expected to introduce a refreshed XUV500 in March 2015, as per market buzz.

The Mumbai-based auto maker had reported 12.55 percent decline in sales at 39,611 units in December as against 45,297 sold in the same month a year ago.
