Despite the market recession, there is a lot of demand for new automobiles in India these days. However, concerns such as a global semiconductor chip scarcity have made it impossible for automakers to meet market demand. As a result, many popular cars now have lengthy waiting lists. The SUVs with the longest wait times this month are shown below (April 2022).
The Mahindra XUV700 has the longest waiting list of any automobile currently available in India. Depending on the variation chosen, purchasers would have to wait anywhere from four to twenty-one months to get one! Mahindra Thar also has a ridiculously long waiting list, with some variants taking up to eleven months to get.
The official waiting period for the Kia Sonet ranges from four to seven months, depending on the variant. For the Hyundai Creta, the delivery time is up to five months for diesel models and up to seven months for petrol models.
The petrol and diesel variants of the Tata Nexon have a waiting period of up to five months, while the EV version has a waiting period of up to four months. Nexon Dark Edition and Nexon EV, on the other hand, have a seven-month waiting period. The delivery time for Kia Seltos can take up to five months.
The base variant of the Tata Punch has a nine-month wait time, whereas all subsequent variations have a four-month wait time. New customers of the Nissan Magnite will have to wait up to four months for delivery.
