Demand for Maruti Ertiga had been strong since its launch. And the recent hike in petrol prices has resulted in an even stronger demand for diesel variants. This has created quite a row over deliveries of the vehicle, especially the top end ZDi and ZXi variants. While the base and mid range LDi and VDi have a delivery period of three to four months, the waiting period for the top end petrol Ertiga ZXi is about six months while the waiting period for the top end diesel Ertiga ZDi is indefinite. Bookings for the Ertiga ZDi made during the first week after launch had a delivery period of six weeks that has stretched to an indefinite period.
