What We Think
The long waiting times for any car can be due to two reasons – the inability of the carmaker to manufacture for the demand, or such popularity of the car that the company was not expecting. In the case of the Scorpio N, it is the latter. The SUV has been in so much demand ever since its inception that the company has struggled to keep up with it. That is a testament to the popularity and success the SUV enjoys in our market. Let us hope that Mahindra ramps up the production so that the potential buyers don’t have to wait this long.
