Tata Harrier has been booked for the next four months.
Tata Harrier is surely one of the big launches of the year. The premium 5-seater SUV has been doing really well for the carmaker and managed to outsold Jeep Compass within first month of its arrival. While the numbers are quite impressive, the company is still struggling to cater the market demand. In fact, the Tata Harrier is said to command a waiting period of up to 3 months and over 10,000 bookings are still pending.
The carmaker has also confirmed that the Tata Harrier has been booked for the next four months. While the official bookings for the Tata Harrier were commenced on 15th October 2018, it was launched on 23rd January, 2019. However, the home-grown carmaker managed to dispatch around 2,000 units of the SUV by the end of February, 2019. Read – Tata Buzzard Will Be Bigger Than Mahindra XUV50 & MG Hector
