Speaking on the announcement, Veejay Nakra, President, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd., said, “We continue our growth trend, backed by strong demand for our SUV portfolio. In November, we sold a total of 39,981 units, a growth of 32 per cent. While we saw a healthy festive season, we faced supply challenges on select parts during the month. We are keeping a close watch and taking appropriate steps to mitigate the challenges”.

Year-to-date Mahindra reported cumulative passenger vehicle sales of 2,98,603 units in FY2024 – up 20 per cent over the same period in FY2023.

Mahindra recently revealed that it continued to have large order backlogs for a significant portion of its SUV range. The carmaker earlier in November said that it had yet to deliver over 2.8 lakh SUVs including over 1 lakh open bookings for the Scorpio family. The carmaker revealed that it was receiving over 10,000 bookings a month each for the Scorpio-N as well as the Thar while the XUV700 accounted for around 9,000 orders each month. The carmaker said that waiting periods for some of these SUVs stretched to well over a year. The carmaker has however looked to address the issue with steps being taken to ramp up production to cater to the demand.
