The demand for Mahindra Scorpio N caused quite an uproar in the market after the first 25,000 bookings were complete within 60 secs and the first 1,00,000 bookings in just 25 minutes.
The Mahindra Scorpio N is already available on the black market. People were so excited about the SUV that the first 1 lakh bookings took less than 30 minutes to complete. Needless to say, this will invariably lead to exorbitantly long waiting periods. Scorpio N is essentially a premium version of the barebones and hardcore Scorpio Classic which also received an update making it a bit more modern. Both these will be sold simultaneously. Scorpio nameplate has had fans for decades which is why the new model received such a grand welcome.

According to this video, there are posts on Facebook where people are offering the Scorpio N to people who don’t want to wait for months. The first 20,000 deliveries are planned to complete in the September-December timeframe. Therefore, a few people who are supposed to receive the SUV in this window are already offering to sell it to others at a certain premium. It is a way of making some quick money. Reportedly, these people are demanding around Rs 1 lakh above the original introductory prices. This is quite strange but people need to understand that they will end up being the second owners.

Now, we are not here to argue whether or not it is fair. If these people are being transparent that they will charge a slight premium and the potential buyers are okay with that as compensation for waiting long periods, then it is not a bad thing. Some persons might need the vehicles sooner and might not mind paying a slight premium in order to get their hand on the SUV early. For them it makes sense. Nevertheless, caution must be practised and the documentation should be done diligently to prevent any fraud.
