Mahindra Scorpio-N performs exceptionally well in its first booking period

Mahindra has now announced that the Scorpio-N has received an overwhelming response in terms of bookings. The SUV crossed over 25,000 bookings in a minute of its inauguration. Within half an hour the number rose to 1 lakh, giving Mahindra a potential selling price of Rs 18,000 crore.

This could be because of the starting price offered by Mahindra for the first few thousand models. Mahindra Scorpio-N was available starting at Rs 11.99 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs 12.49 lakh for the diesel variant. This price was for the first 25,000 buyers to book the SUV on Mahindra’s official website.

Having said that, those who had booked the SUV in a minute before the opening, will get it at the starting price. For the rest of the buyers who book it, the price will probably be disclosed at the time of delivery.

Notably, for booking the SUV, buyers had to pay Rs 21,000. Those who booked the SUV in the first booking period yesterday (July 30) can also choose the variants and color options anytime till August 15.

The delivery details of Scorpio-N will be given by the end of next month.

The Scorpio-N is an affordable SUV for its price and positions itself before the Mahindra XUV700. The XUV700 outperformed the likes of Tata Safari, Harrier, Hyundai Alcazar, Jeep Compass and MG Hector series.
