Mahindra has handed over the first unit of the all-new Thar to Aakash Minda, winner of the online auction for the first unit. The first unit of the model that was delivered to its owner is an LX Petrol AT convertible variant, finished in a shade of Mystic Copper.
The first unit of the new Mahindra Thar gets exclusive features such as the Thar #1 badge, a customised badging on the vehicle flaunting the owner’s initials, and serial number ‘1’ on the decorative plate of the dashboard and leatherette seats. The Thar is offered in three variants and six colours, details of which are available here.
Engine options on the 2020 Mahindra Thar include a 2.0-litre petrol engine producing 150bhp and 320Nm of torque as well as a 2.2-litre diesel engine producing 130bhp and 300Nm of torque. These motors are paired to a six-speed manual unit and a six-speed automatic unit. We have driven the new Thar and you can read our review here.

The all-new Thar is a dynamic expression of fun, freedom, and independence and will surely make a personalized statement for its owner”.
