Mahindra Scorpio N waiting period witnesses massive drop

Mahindra Scorpio N has been a popular choice among buyers ever since it was launched nearly a year ago. For a long time, Mahindra has been facing supply chain issues leading to extended waiting periods. However, the carmaker has recently been working on ramping up production of the Scorpio N along with the XUV700 and Thar, and it now shows as the waiting periods for the Scorpio N are on a steady decline. Though the waiting period has reduced considerably, it still stretches to over a year, depending on the variant. 

Mahindra Scorpio N waiting period details
There are five trims available on the Scorpio N – Z2, Z4, Z6, Z8 and Z8L. While in May, it was the Z4 trim that had the most waiting period, it is now the Z8 trim which commands the maximum waiting period – up to 13 months. However, the Z4 trim, with a waiting period of about 12 months, is not far behind the Z8. 

The top-spec Z8L trim now has the least waiting period, with the petrol automatic versions having a waiting period of around three months and the diesel automatic with around eight months. The Z8L petrol manual has a waiting period of up to eight months and its corresponding diesel manual versions have a waiting of nearly a year. Just last month, this top-spec trim had a waiting period of up to 9 months.

Back in November, the waiting period for the Scorpio N extended up to more than two years. Customers purchasing the Z2, Z4, Z6 and Z8 trims had to wait somewhere between 22 to 25 months, depending on the variant and location. The Scorpio N Z8L, at the time, saw the waiting period drop from 17 months to just four months.  

Mahindra Scorpio N powertrain details
The Scorpio N gets two engine options – a 203hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 175hp, 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine. Both can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. While the Scorpio N comes with rear-wheel drive as standard, the diesel also gets four-wheel drive as an option.

Mahindra Scorpio N price and rivals
Prices for the Scorpio N currently range between Rs 13.06 lakh-24.51 lakh (ex-showroom, India). It currently does not have a direct rival in our market, but for its price and positioning, it competes with the likes of the Tata SafariMahindra XUV700 and MG Hector Plus and Hyundai Alcazar
