If you were thinking that Mahindra's new Scorpio will command a long waiting period in India as its demand increases, you are wrong.
Here is a good news for those who are planning to get their hands on to the steering wheel of the new avatar of iconic Scorpio.
A recent report claims that the SUV kingpin Mahindra has been able to keep its waiting time to a minimum for the latest offering Scorpio facelift even when it is getting good response from the auto lovers in the country.
A new Rushlane report reveals that all the variants of the new Scorpio are having only a minimum waiting period in the country, except the Four Wheel Drive (4WD). Scorpio 4WD has a waiting period of up to three months as the SUV is made based on the order.
Mahindra Scorpio S10, the high end variant is reportedly the most preferred model among all others and the waiting period for this is less than three weeks. Other variants of Scorpio are also getting good responses from the SUV fans and the waiting period is said to be the same for all.
Apparently, the body colours of the SUV also play a role in determining the waiting period. As per the report, the white Scorpio commands less waiting period than other colours like Red and Blue.
