Mahindra & Mahindra's most recent launches, such as the Scorpio N, the Thar, and the XUV700, are in high demand, and as a result, waiting periods are excruciatingly long for some variants. The mid-level Z4 petrol and diesel variants of the Mahindra Scorpio N have a waiting period of up to 65 weeks, whereas the Z8 L AT has a waiting period of about 24 to 26 weeks. The waiting period for the base Z2 and Z8 variants is up to 54 and 60 weeks, respectively. Customers interested in purchasing the Z8 L MT will have to wait anywhere from 56 and 58 weeks. Shortly after the launch of the Mahindra Scorpio N late last year, the Indian auto manufacturer launched the Scorpio Classic, an updated version of the old Scorpio. The newly launched Mahindra Thar RWD diesel variant has a 74-week waiting period, the longest in the company's lineup in February 2023.
