Sirs, I was at a get together last night of around 20-25 people aged between 25-45 who have somewhat of a fair knowledge on cars.. I discussed the Thar with them extensively and most said it would be a fun/ macho vehicle to own, but a hard top with an AC is a must. When I asked them how much they would pay for such a vehicle, they said not more than 7 lakhs on the road.

Just thought I should share this with everyone here.

Sirs, do any of you have some interior pictures of the Thar? I would love to see what the dashboard, door panels, steering and rest look like. I request anyone with interior pictures of the Thar to kindly post them here and oblige.

Default Power Windows

BD Sir/ Spike / Vinod,

Would there be provision in the wiring harness to fix power windows externally without voiding the warranty.

Cheers

Kind attention members from Mahindra

Sirs,

1. If we are to get alloy wheels on the Thar, can we get the same design as displayed in the Auto Expo instead of the ones displayed on the current Thar website?
2. If we are not going to get alloy wheels on the Thar, can we get wheels like the ones on the Military 550s?
3. If we are to get both alloy wheels and steel wheels, could you kindly consider the above two options?
4. Can we have a shorter footboard instead of the long one seen on the Thar now? This footboard is okay for a 4 door Scorpio, but the Thar being a 2 door (no back door on the sides) doesn't need such a long footboard and it also kills the look of the Thar.

Vinod, I thought immediate means on the same day, I could see Mahindra website still proudly presents Thar under Domestic tab.

Hi,

I understand that a lot of inputs are being fed into the final product. I want to suggest one too, which is most critical to most if not all.

Please ensure that the front windscreen is foldable as a standard feature on the soft top version.

Thanks!

2. If we are not going to get alloy wheels on the Thar, can we get wheels like the ones on the Military 550s? If you referring to old type wheels then you will not get it as they were negative off set. Will not suit THAR
3. If we are to get both alloy wheels and steel wheels, could you kindly consider the above two options? Not possible for the reasons mentioned
4. Can we have a shorter footboard instead of the long one seen on the Thar now? This footboard is okay for a 4 door Scorpio, but the Thar being a 2 door (no back door on the sides) doesn't need such a long footboard and it also kills the look of the Thar. - Scorpio's foot board is longer is suppose. I agree on looks dilution. But utility of it for ladies is immense.

See my answers in bold above.

Yikes,
This should be possible in THAR i suppose. But i dont know how the Bolero IP will restrict the movement. DB sir/ Spike, is folding wind screen still possible?

Kind attention Mr. Vinod Nookala

Thank you for your quick response as usual, sir, and yes the 550 wheels I mentioned do have a negative offset. It would be very nice if you could post a picture or two of the interiors we will get on the Thar.

Yes, Shiva! Domestic operations will present THAR proudly one day. But for now it is gone. Iam told it was addressed on last friday itself.


@ THar- I dont have a pic for you now. There is nothing to surprise you there. You will have Bolero dashboard. A basic one which can adapt a/c controls and blower. Also please dont be so formal.

Would love to buy one if its priced around 5-6lacs(on road), i know am asking for too much

when Bolero CRDI is priced at 8lacs,which is known for its basic comfort and bad finish...i dont expect "Thar" to cost below 8:(
