Mahindra has received more than 13,500 bookings for the Marazzo, which it had launched on 3 September. That’s according to Dr. Pawan Goenka, the company’s Managing Director.
Mahindra has dispatched a little over 9,000 units to dealers. Of the total shipment, the retail delivery count stands at about 6,800 units.
Commenting on the MPV’s waiting period, Dr. Goenka said: “Currently we are getting in new demand at 130, 140, 150 (units) a day, which is matching with the current production. Therefore, the waiting period, which is right now about 6-8 weeks, will probably remain 6-8 weeks.”
