Hyundai Exter Waiting Period: Hyundai’s recently launched micro SUV, Exter, is receiving a tremendous response. The company began taking bookings in May, and so far, they have already booked 16,000 units. To avoid customers waiting for too long, the company started deliveries on the second day of its launch. However, due to high demand, the waiting period for this vehicle continues to increase.
According to sources, some variants of the Hyundai Exter now have a waiting period of 12 weeks. This means customers may have to wait for up to 3 months to receive their SUV. The automatic variant of the Exter has the longest waiting period. As per information, the company is receiving daily bookings of 1,800 units for the Exter. Out of these, 38% are for the automatic variant, 22% for the CNG variant, and 40% for the petrol manual variant.
The waiting period for the automatic variant is higher. As per the sources, the manual and CNG variants have a waiting period of approximately 6 to 8 weeks, while the automatic variants have a waiting period of 10 to 12 weeks. The Hyundai Exter competes with Tata Punch, Maruti Suzuki Ignis, and Citroen C3 in the Indian market.
