Congrats to the M&M team for bringing out the THAR. Special congrats to DB, Pratheesh & Vinod for their patience and never say die spirit :-)

For me, the pricing is a little on the higher side. A 6.2 - 6.5 OTR would be BEST.

Did not see the video launch but would like to know from M&M or other folks about off-road use warranty -- what is covered & what not. What about water fording? What is the fint print..

Oh, BTW, there is a THAR test drive page here.
Thar

I have filled it to test the responsiveness of M&M on this and when they come back to me with a test drive offer :-)

there are many reasons for that config in vehicles.the main one relates to the weight transfer that occurs when applying the brakes, making the front wheel brakes work harder, thus needing more effective stopping power and more efficient cooling.

my civic in dubai has discs front and drumbs rear. but i guess the civic in india has all four discs.

Sudarshan bhai, see the design of some classic cars/vehicles dont change with the time, they are loved the way they came out first.

porsche 911
VW beetle
Royal enfield bullet/classic
G-wagon
Landrover defender 90/110

and now the latest to carry on with the design is Maruti Suzuki Swift!

no need to sell your landy, keep it with you. i miss my defender 110 from my days in africa!

Behram Sir, Vinod, Prateesh, and the Thar team (And the proxy team of TBhp)

-----Congrats on the launch-----

Personally I cant buy a 7L OTR offroader, but what are the prices of the Mdi 4X4?

the thar website only gives info and price about the CRDe THAR and nothing about the MDI!

i think some one mentioned in the THAR MDI thread somewhere that the MDI would be around 4.5 - 5.0 lakhs!

Any word on the customization options made available for the buyers?
Would be interested if M&M offered AC, HT from the dealer end.

I sure hope so, but am not sure about the tax structure etc and hence quoted 7.25 ish.

After seeing the BLR price i have a feeling samurai's 7.15 might be realistic, still way too high for me. Gypsy at 6.28 is much more affordable and bang for the buck.

Now there is lot of interest going towards MDi atleast from the offroad community.

The road tax is 14% + 10% cess on road tax = 15.4% of ex-showroom (this road tax is what makes our roads so lovely)
The insurance is roughly 3% of the ex-showroom.
Then roughly 5K for all the handling and other misc charges.

6.01L X (15.4 + 3)% + 5K = 7.16L

Congrats to the Thar team Behram Sir, Spike, Vinod and rest of the team making it a reality, close to almost a year later than the SA launch. It is a wonderful machine, and me longing to acquire one, but my waiting going to be longer due to the price.

Disappointed on price front as I was expecting it lower by 50k.
On Road in Blr is 7.15 + A/C + Hard top = 7.75 or will it be more?.
I can wait for alloys and other goodies. But the above is a must. Let us see how it evolves.

Congrats to team M&M for finally taking the cover of this excellent "JEEP".

That said, I agree with many others that it is overpriced by about 50K-70K. And A/c should have been a standard fitment - like the PS.

Anyway, going by my Xylo experience, it would take another year for the Thar to reach my town. So I think I will wait one more year and get a nice used Thar instead.

Cheers.

So, finally its good to see the Thar launch. Called up the local dealer but he's not even heard about Thar, let alone any info.
Will wait for prices in my region & a TD report on t-bhp followed by a first hand experience.
Called up a Dealer in another City(major), he said they are accepting 1L as booking amount & delivery period stretches from 3-4 weeks.

This being winters time, I can easily afford to wait till summers for a retro A.C. fitment.

Guys start suggesting the best color!

Vinod displayed some exhaustive selective customization options, but only for a minute. Where can we see those in detail? Also, want to know about the process.

Sending the Thar back to Mumbai after registration is not practical for most of us. I hope they assign/identify customization workshop in all metros so that we can all consider getting some of the work done without losing warranty. I for one won't send the Thar to Mumbai after registration and twiddle thumbs for months.
