The new Scorpio-N was launched by Mahindra & Mahindra in the country in June last year, with prices beginning at Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The Z6 variant – the SUV is available in six variants – grabbed our attention after the company recently started production. The Scorpio-N has been in high demand since its official launch. Within 30 seconds of opening reservations, the company received a record-breaking number of bookings of around 1 lakh units. Now, long waiting periods for delivery have been caused by the supply shortages that the industry faced throughout last year, which still persist in some ways. This issue is not exclusive to the Indian automaker's Scorpio-N SUV, as other vehicles are also facing the same challenges.
