Mahindra Scorpio N top model automatic waiting period drastically reduced

Mahindra Scorpio N front quarter

The Scorpio N has been one of the biggest market launches from Mahindra this year. Since its launch, the Scorpio N has commanded long waiting periods, with delivery time for some variants going up to two years, as reported by us in September. Sources tell us that, while some Scorpio N variants still command a two-year waiting, variants like the Scorpio N Z8 L (AT) have seen a drastic reduction in waiting periods.

  • Scorpio N Z6, Z8 still have up to 24-month waiting period
  • Scorpio N Z4 has a 21-month waiting period
  • Scorpio N Z8 L (AT) can now be delivered in under four months

Mahindra Scorpio N Z8 L automatic waiting period sees a massive drop

Since its debut, higher variants of the Scorpio N have been gathering a major chunk of the bookings. While booking for the Scorpio N started in June, deliveries for the SUV commenced on Dussehra this year. Mahindra had announced that it will prioritise delivery of the Z8 L variants from the first 25,000 bookings, sending them to customers by November this year.

Dealer sources also confirmed that a majority of the top-spec variants booked of the Scorpio N have been the Z8 L (AT). And with Mahindra prioritising top-spec Scorpio N Z8 L units to customers, the waiting period for this particular variant, especially the automatic ones, has gone down from around 17 months to a mere four months at most locations.

Additionally, we are also told that, in order to procure their Scorpio N sooner, a lot of customers had booked multiple units of the SUV at more than one outlet. A sizeable chunk of these bookings was cancelled once these customers received their Scorpio N.

As far as other Scorpio N variants go, the Scorpio N Z2, Z4, Z6 and Z8 have waiting periods varying from 22 to 25 months, depending on variant and location.

Scorpio N production capacity to be ramped up

Despite Mahindra building around 17,000 units of the Scorpio N and the Scorpio Classic every month, the company has confirmed that it has over 1.3 lakh units of both SUVs yet to be delivered. The increasing number of orders has also prompted Mahindra to ramp up production capacity, with the brand announcing that it will start making around 10,000 units of the Scorpio N a month by the fourth quarter of FY2024.
