2020 has been a tough year for the automotive industry in terms of sales. Now, when everything is getting back on track, we can definitely see some hope of revival. This can further be justified with the fact that we have seen many new launches in the past few months. With the demand for new cars steadily increasing in the Indian market, the waiting period for a few vehicles has reached the sky limit. Today we will talk about the cars and SUVs that were launched in the Indian market last year but you may have to wait for a long time to get hands-on them. Here we have listed the cars & SUVs with the highest waiting period across the country.
Mahindra & Mahindra launched the second-generation Thar in the country in October 2020. The SUV had a very high demand, such that it affected its production capacity. Currently, the waiting period has reached 9 months. Initially, the new-gen Thar was offered in two trims-AX & LX. But then the company discontinued the base AX variant. The off-roader is an ultimate symbol of toughness, reliability, and safety. It comes loaded with tech features that keeps you connected with your SUV.
Hyundai India had launched the new-gen Creta BS6 last year. This best-selling SUV has a high demand which further leads to an incredibly high waiting period.

Its bold exterior and a new masculine stance sets it apart from every other SUV. It also comes equipped with segment-first features
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is regarded as one of the most affordable MPVs in the Indian market. Talking about the demand for the Ertiga, it is quite strong owing to the fact that the waiting period stretches up to 8 months for select variants in certain cities across the country. The Ertiga MPV flaunts a bold personality. Moving inside the cabin of the MPV, it is quite spacious and comes packed with a host of first-in-class features.
Nissan Magnite has received quite an overwhelming response since its launch in December last year. This has further prompted the Japanese automaker to start the third shift at its plant in order to increase the production capacity. At present, the waiting period for Magnite is up to 6.5 months in select cities for certain variants. Furthermore, its muscular lines and dynamic styling give it a bold look. The SUV comes packed with an array of innovative technologies.
