The prices of 2020 Mahindra Thar are set to increase from December 1 2020, as the introductory price period is coming to an end. The lifestyle off-roader was launched on 2nd October and now, it has completed almost two months of being launched.

Mahindra Thar #1

2020 Mahindra Thar is currently, priced from Rs 11.90 Lakhs up to Rs 13.75 Lakhs (ex-showroom). So, we expect the top-end variant to cross Rs 15 Lakhs mark easily and the base spec trim to come around Rs 13 Lakhs. However, all buyers will not be applicable for this price hike. It is only for those who are booking the Thar from December 1 onwards.

So, buyers who have already booked it before December 1 will have to pay the introductory prices only. Meanwhile, the waiting period is also increasing rapidly and now, it has reached over 7 months. It is sold out till July 2021 if you book it right now. Increase in the waiting period has irked many buyers and a lot of them have cancelled the bookings too.

Currently, the production capacity is running at 2,000 units per month. By January 2021, the capacity will increase up to 3,000 units per month, which is expected to bring down the waiting period even further. The deliveries of Thar commenced across the country earlier this month, the first one delivered to the winner of Auction, Akash Minda.

2020 Mahindra Thar comes with two powertrain options including a 130 BHP 2.2 Litre turbo-diesel engine and a 150 BHP 2.0 Litre petrol engine, both of them offered with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter. The base-spec variant introduced was AX variant which was recently discontinued due to low demand.
