Some cars are enjoying a massive demand right now, but due to factors like semiconductor chip shortage, their production hasn’t been able to keep up.

Mahindra XUV700 towers over all others in terms of the waiting period – up to nineteen months for select variants. Next in line is Mahindra Thar, which has a waiting period of up to 12 months!
