The Mahindra Scorpio-N had amassed great public interest after it got unveiled a few weeks ago. And when the bookings for the Scorpio-N started, the new SUV from Mahindra shattered all records by collecting around 1 lakh bookings in just 30 minutes. Needless to say, the new Scorpio-N is the new blockbuster from Mahindra, and now, Mahindra has finally started delivering the Scorpio-N to its customers.

On the auspicious occasion of the first day of the nine-day Navratri fest, the deliveries of Mahindra Scorpio-N have started. Several people, who are taking their deliveries of the Scorpio-N, are posting their delivery experiences on the social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and WhatsApp. Mahindra is delivering all the variants of the Scorpio-N, following the order and priorities of the bookings made.

The new Mahindra Scorpio-N finally got unveiled in India in June 2022 after long anticipation years. Mahindra decided to keep the older generation of the Scorpio by rebranding it as Scorpio Classic, with the new Scorpio-N positioned as a more premium offering with new-generation features. The new Mahindra Scorpio-N is currently the only three-row four-wheel-drive SUV below the Rs 25 lakh mark, which makes it an exclusive combination of a family-oriented vehicle and a fun-to-drive SUV on off-road terrains.
