Mahindra had prioritised deliveries of Z8 trim of Scorpio N – Now, they have started delivery of base Z4 variant
From the day it got launched, it was pretty obvious that Scorpio N would have huge demand. Booking numbers were off the charts. Mahindra had a daunting task of meeting the delivery timeline of customers. They devised a plan, as per which buyers who had booked top-spec variants were given first priority.
Deliveries started in the last week of Sep 2022. The company delivered 7,000 SUVs in the first 10 days of Navratri festival. In December 2022, Mahindra began deliveries of mid-spec and low-spec variants.
