In this latest video, a Mahindra Thar driver jumped the divider just to save some toll tax. I have reported numerous instances of people performing questionable activities in Thar SUV. Thar is the most successful off-roader in the country ever since its inception. In its latest iteration, the Indian auto giant is struggling to keep up with the demand. In fact, for some models, the waiting periods are well over 1 year in some cities. That is a testament to the kind of demand this SUV invokes. Let us take a look at the details of this latest case.
