Mahindra and Mahindra are going all out with the sales of their SUVs. However, the high demand for their cars is leading the consumers towards high waiting periods including the latest 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N. In the case of the Indian automaker, the popularity of the SUV is directly proportional to the waiting period trailing it. In addition, chip shortages increased raw material prices alongside other conditions that have exacerbated the problem of long waiting periods. Specifically, models like 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N and Mahindra XUV700 have very long waiting periods of around 1 year or more.
2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N waiting period
Getting into the details, the recently launched Mahindra Scorpio-N stands at the top of the list of SUVs. It is to be noted that around 1.5 lakh units of the SUV are still pending. The SUV created a record of getting around 1 lakh bookings within 30 minutes of when the bookings opened for the new model. The numbers were kind of expected considering the legacy of the name Scorpio combined with the modern touch.
Mahindra XUV700 waiting period
Similarly, the first SUV to feature the company’s twin-peaks logo, which is the Mahindra XUV700, has a waiting period. Even though it has been quite a while since the SUV was launched in the Indian market, still 1 lakh units of the car are waiting for delivery. The model gained instant popularity in the Indian car scene owing to its modern features in a decent price range. Consumers were also attracted to the new SUV because of the modern appeal that it brings to the table.
Apart from these Mahindra models, there are other SUVs as well that are being liked by the Indian consumers and hence have long waiting periods. For instance, Hyundai Creta and Venue have 1.45 lakh pending units to be delivered, gaining them the second position after Mahindra Scorpio-N with the most pending deliveries. Moreover, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara and Brezza are also expected to keep the customers waiting, considering what they are going to offer.
