The midsize SUV segment has been all the rage in recent years as customers are preferring to buy well-equipped products with a premium interior and good practicality. Mahindra is a premiere SUV manufacturer in India and it has been reaping the benefits of its latest launches with good sales numbers and resultantly facing high demand.
The Z6 and Z8 variants of the recently launched Mahindra Scorpio N command a waiting period of up to 24 months while the Z4 has it at 21 months. With Mahindra prioritising the delivery of the Z8 L trim for the first lot of 25,000 bookings, the automatic variant has a shorter waiting period of just under four months.
It has seen a big drop in the waiting period as top-level trims have garnered the majority of reservations. The waiting period for the Mahindra Scorpio N Z8 L AT has reduced from around 17 months to four months across most parts of the country. The Scorpio N has the highest waiting period out of them all ahead of XUV700 and Hyundai Creta.
