Mahindra & Mahindra is fast ramping up production at its manufacturing plants to cater to surging demand for its popular models. The recently launched Scorpio N is one of them. The Scorpio N, which clocked a record 25,000 bookings in a minute and over 100,000 bookings in under 30 minutes on July 30, is now under production at M&M’s Chakan plant, near Pune. 

M&M has announced that it will commence deliveries of the Scorpio N from September 26, 2022. The company plans to deliver 25,000 units of the Scorpio N by the end of November 2022, with a focus on delivering the popular Z8 L variant first.

Prices for the Scorpio N currently range from Rs 11.99 lakh to Rs 23.90 lakh (ex-showroom), and are expected to go up once the first lot of 25,000 units is delivered. 

7,000 units to be delivered in first 10 days
According to the latest announcement, Mahindra has confirmed that it will focus on delivering as many as 7,000 Scorpio N units to customers in the first 10 days, starting September 26. These would most likely include only the top-spec Z8 L variant.   

Bookings for the Scorpio N began on July 30 and the company had claimed that it gathered around 100,000 online bookings within the first 30 minutes. While there was a technical glitch in the online booking process, Mahindra was quick to acknowledge the issue and clarified that the booking system recorded the time stamps when the customer hit the payment button. 

As mentioned earlier, the top-spec Scorpio N Z8 L is the most in demand and Mahindra will first deliver this variant to its customers. The Scorpio Z8 L comes loaded with all the bells and whistles and is available in seven exterior paint shades. 

Mahindra's order backlog as of August 2022
While Mahindra has not announced the total number of bookings received for the Scorpio N, the brand already has a huge order backlog of undelivered units of its other popular SUVs like the XUV700 and the Thar, in addition to pending deliveries of the Bolero line-up and the XUV300. 

Dealers have told Autocar India that the XUV700 AX line-up still has a waiting period of around 70 weeks, however, the MX range can be delivered in around three months' time. While the XUV700's order backlog continues to pile up, it is learnt that the waiting period for the Thar has now come down to around four months for the diesel versions and lesser than that for the petrol variants.
