Mahindra Scorpio N has seen a huge demand in India since its launch in June 2022. Since then, the automaker has added new variants to help with the waiting period and even hiked the SUV’s prices. Mahindra also revamped the Scorpio Classic last year, launching it soon after the Scorpio N. The top-spec variants of the two SUVs had the highest demand, often exceeding waiting periods of 12 months. After more than a year since launch, the waiting periods for the two SUVs have dropped down to the range of 1-9 months.
