Tata Tiago to Punch – 10 Tata Cars With Highest Waiting Period

Many popular Tata cars in India continue to have a long waiting period for delivery. For example, the Tata Punch has a waiting period of up to 28 weeks, depending on the variants chosen.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and a semiconductor crisis the automobile industry is facing a sales significant slump. While there is still a huge demand for new cars, the limited production capacity is scaring off customers. Most of the popular Tata cars have a long waiting period for delivery in India. This includes the likes of Tata Tiago, Tata Punch, and more. Unfortunately, these waiting periods don’t seem to go down anytime soon. While things have improved, car manufacturers are still struggling to increase production capacity because of limited raw materials like semiconductor chips.

Cars need chips for almost everything (door locks, infotainment, brakes, driver-assist systems, etc). The semiconductor chip shortage started in March 2020. It has already cost the global auto industry about $210 billion in lost revenue in 2021. As the global semiconductor chip shortage continues, the waiting period for high-demand vehicles might increase further, especially in India. Even the dealerships aren’t certain about the exact time period. On other hand, we will see a lot of new launches in the country as newly launched cars are attracting a lot of buyers.
