Next-gen Mahindra Thar to be launched post October

According to a media report, the next generation Mahindra Thar will be launched post October 2020, sometime during the festive season.

The launch of the new Thar has been delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Dr. Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra, had hinted that the launch could take place in the month of October. However, according to Rajesh Jejurikar, Executive Director, Automotive & Farm Division, it has now been rescheduled.

The new Thar is larger than the outgoing model and is will be offered with either a soft top or hard top. On the inside, it will get a redesigned dashboard with circular air-conditioner vents and a new centre fascia that houses a touchscreen infotainment system.

The Thar could be powered by a 2.0-litre mStallion petrol engine producing 187 BHP and 380 Nm and a 138 BHP 2.2-litre diesel engine. Transmission options might include an automatic and a 6-speed manual. It could also get a diesel AT variant.
