Mahindra have ramped up production of the all new Thar from January onwards. Previously, the company was manufacturing 2,000 units of the Thar per month. That figure has gone up to 3,000 units per month from January. It should help reduce the waiting period by a couple of months, although not significantly. The 2020 Mahindra Thar was launched across two trim lines - LX and AX - with introductory prices ranging between INR 11.90 lakh and INR 13.75 lakh (ex-showroom). Later, Mahindra axed the AX variant with 6-seater configuration to meet the safety standards. The AX variants were also not much in demand.

Mahindra offers two engine options under the hood of the Thar - a 2.0-litre mStallion TGDI petrol engine that makes 150 bhp and 300Nm of torque (320Nm with the automatic gearbox) and a 2.2 litre mHawk diesel unit that makes 130 bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options include either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox for both the engines. Four-wheel drive along with a low-range transfer case is standard for all the variants. Although the Thar does not have a direct rival currently, it will soon see competition from the BS6 Force Gurkha and India-bound Maruti Suzuki Jimny.
