Here, we’ve listed the top five sedans in India with the highest wait till delivery.

The official waiting period for its petrol version is around two to three months, while for the CNG variants, the same ranges from three to four months (except for XE i-CNG variant, which has a wait time of up to ten months).

The electric version of Tigor – Tigor EV – has a waiting period of up to two months, which is quite low, relatively speaking!

In the Indian car market, the market share of sedans has been shrinking in recent years, mostly due to the rise in the popularity of SUVs. Buyers are migrating towards compact and midsize SUVs, however, carmakers like Skoda, Volkswagen, Honda, etc., believe that sedans can still bring in a lot of sales if exciting products exist in this space.
