If you are planning to buy a new car in India, you may have to wait for several weeks or even months before you get the delivery. The demand for cars has increased due to various factors such as low interest rates, personal mobility needs, festive season and new launches. However, the supply of cars has been affected by the global shortage of semiconductor chips, which are essential for various features and functions of modern vehicles. In this blog post, we will look at the waiting period of some of the popular cars from different segments and brands in India. These include Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Tata Motors, Mahindra and Toyota.
The waiting period may vary depending on the city, variant, colour and availability of the car. The data is based on the web search results as of December 2022.
