The Z6 diesel and Z8 petrol and diesel variants of the Mahindra Scorpio N have the longest waiting period of just over two years.
In June 2022, Mahindra & Mahindra introduced the Scorpio N, a new generation Scorpio that has been well received by customers. The homegrown SUV manufacturer’s recent launches, such as the second-generation Thar, all-new XUV700, and Scorpio N, are popular among buyers, and their waiting period is long due to high demand and supply chain issues.
The Mahindra Scorpio N is available in a variety of trim levels, with prices ranging from Rs. 12.74 lakh to Rs. 24.05 lakh (ex-showroom). It is available as a six- or seven-seater in the Z2, Z4, Z6, Z8, and Z8 L variants. The Z2 variant has a waiting period of 85 to 90 weeks for the petrol and diesel trims, while the Z4 has a waiting period of 90 to 95 weeks.
The waiting period for the Scorpio N diesel Z6 is 100 to 105 weeks. Moving up the list, the Z8 petrol and diesel variants have comparable wait times, while the automatic Z8 Luxury variant has the shortest wait time of 20 to 25 weeks for both petrol and diesel iterations. Customers who want to own the top-of-the-line Z8 L manual must wait 70 to 75 weeks.
The SUV is built on a new ladder frame and features an evolutionary exterior as well as a completely redesigned interior. It is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder mHawk petrol engine and a 2.2-litre four-cylinder mHawk diesel engine, both of which are found in the XUV700 and Thar. Both are paired with either a six-speed manual or a torque converter automatic transmission.
The gasoline engine generates 203 hp and 370 Nm in manual mode and 203 hp and 380 Nm in AT mode. The oil burner produces 132 hp and 300 Nm in its lowest state of tune, 175 hp and 370 Nm in manual mode, and 175 hp and 400 Nm in AT mode. The diesel engine includes Zip, Zap, and Zoom modes. The Zip mode restricts the maximum power to 138 hp.
The Scorpio N comes standard with RWD, but higher-spec trims can be ordered with 4WD as well. It has an independent front suspension, mechanical locking rear differential, ESP-based brake locking front differential, five-link rear suspension, four terrain modes for a 4Xplor 4WD system with a low range mode, and other features.
