They should take a reasonable margin like they do on their other models. Since bulk of these vehicles are meant for exports, there is no need to fleece the Indian customer for a few pieces thrown our way.
Couldn't agree more. I will not buy the Thar if it is not reasonably priced and has some decent features. If we all took a stand and said no to junk sold at exorbitant prices, we would get to the quality that is sold elsewhere in APAC and Europe. There is a dearth of good vehicles for the enthusiasts but at some point we need to sit up, look and say no!!

I quite like the options that the xenon offers and the quality is pretty neat too. Wonder why Mahindra is unable to offer such after market/dealer options when there numbers are much higher than Xenon.
