The Mahindra Thar RWD has the highest waiting period of up to 74 weeks in the month of March 2023 in India
Mahindra & Mahindra has been reaping the benefits of its latest launches as the second generation Thar introduced in 2020, the all-new XUV700 and the new Scorpio series comprising Scorpio N and Scorpio Classic have been well received by customers. In addition, the XUV400 electric SUV has also garnered impressive bookings (10k within five days).
The waiting period for the Thar lifestyle off-road SUV has drastically reduced in recent months and most of the 4WD variants only command a waiting of up to 4 weeks. However, the same cannot be said for the RWD version, which was launched earlier this year. With an attractive starting price of Rs. 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom), it is in high demand.
It has a massive waiting period of up to 74 weeks for the diesel trim. The Mahindra Scorpio N has a waiting period of up to 65 weeks for the mid-spec Z4 trim. The top-end Z8L is available in petrol and diesel engines with MT and AT options.
