So is the price going to be cheaper? If the prices were more expensive in reality, you would not be so vociferous. Since you are, the prices must be cheaper. By what %, i guess we're still in the dark.

I am sure you very well know what is happening with the THAR production and why it has not hit the streets as yet

If not, just give me a call and I can share more details and bring you upto speed on THAR

Workshop training i guess.

So Vinod let me ask you a very straight question. Can you please let us know when the vehicle will be available for purchase from a showroom? Am ok even if you give a reply like "between Jan to Feb 2011".

Ideally I too want a 6 point roll cage. But who is going to make it for me? Doing DYI with safety equipment doesn't appeal to me much. I rather have a scientifically designed 4 point roll cage than badly designed 6 point roll cage.

Saar,

These guys took 1.5 years to launch a 4x4 version of the mHawk. 1.5 YEARS!!! Who the hell will wait that long? And in the end, the 4x4 mechanism was the exact same as what came in the CRDE version.

And their price points for the 4x4's they have is ridiculous! Why cant they launch a 4x4 option in every trim? I cannot believe its a factory line issue. TATA has a 4x4 at a much lower price point than M&M. I cant believe 4x4 is being made out to be a rich man's toy - when it is absolutely not. Electronic gizmos are. ABS, Airbags, and 4x4 are mandatory for an SUV.

Dont even get me started. Anyway, this is very offtopic.

Jakku, if the THAR is priced MORE than what has been leaked out here, it will be affordable only 7-8 years down the line, when our individual per capita income increases :-)

Imagine you get the Classic at the exact same specs (barring the engine - lets say its the MDI3200TC) as it was launched at a sub 5 Lakh price point brand new from the factory today. Will you pick it up?

Yes it will be cheaper. at least by 10% i believe . The current prices have already lost few customers. so it will be sure revised
