More than the list the price please, i saw many cosmetic mods but apart from roll bar nothing much interested me. What about MLD, how much are these?

"IF" i look at Thar minimum i want is AC, better tyres, MLD and roll cage.

Good to see the Thar launch...

Definately its a nice to have offroader in garage, Looks & Performace is really great

It would be great to have factory fitted AC, i would certainly wait for a year or so to see how M&M manages the customization

Any idea if there is a planned hard top version with AC ?
I think that would be a good combination and then more people can buy this for their daily commute and weekend getaways.

Yeah i think so, Red, White and Black. Black i will not recommend coz if you take off the road it will be very difficult to cover the scars on a black body, that way white will be the best. Also black really doesn't bring out the character of this vehicle.

In discussions with THAR Gods, I understand that THAR with A/C is in validation stages but no one knows the time frame when it will hit the market. I have been told to take the dealer fitment and in case of any issue, M&M will take care.

Buying the THAR in its present format allows me to make a few additions in the vehicle like
  1. Bolero VLX Dash
  2. Front Power Windows
  3. Central Locking
  4. Removable Hard Top with rear windscreen wiper
  5. ICE
without having to pay the Excise Duty and 14% registration tax on them.

I'm itching to get my hands on the THAR and not that I don't believe the "Taking Care" part, but am torn on the decision whether to wait for Factory Fitted AC or just go ahead and get it done with dealer.

What do you Guru's suggest?

P.S: I have decided to go with Black with 4X4 Addict's Jeep HT.

Does anyone have suggestions on which Bangalore Mahindra dealer to go to for booking the Thar CRDe?

I live in Whitefield and both Sireesh Auto and India Garage Service Stations are quite a distance from my place.

Definately makes sense.
Would love the fella in white.
Thank you Mahindra and Team-BHP for this

For that purpose, Silver would be the safest but that again would not bring out the "character"!

I want the color that would become the commonest. There's no particular reason for choosing the commonest color but if the vehicle does not become a success, then I don't want to end up with a noticeable car.

I have ideas for White. After I've used the vehicle for a while & want to upgrade or something, I can convert into an Ambulance!

Total cost of all this wont be less than 50K to 75K, and AC is still missing in the list.

I'm not even close to being a Jeeper/Offroader, but man the Thar is appealing! I think I'm catching the Thar fever!

Would love to own one for those Sunday drives

Should look great in white or red (maybe even black) with some really neat alloys and chunky tires!

Mahindra Thar is now launched in INDIA!!
Thanks to Behram Sir, Vinod Sir, Spike & the entire Thar team for making it a reality.
Thanks to Team-BHP as well.

Missed the live webcast as was there at the launch venue, waiting for it!!
You must have seen the entry in that video posted already. DB sir himself drove the red Thar on stage. That was a nice launch. No drama, no delay, no filmi dance & all. Simple but rocking launch.
Must be the MOST AWAITED launch in India!!

Took some pics (with Mobile). I think its alright to share it now.

The set:

  3. Central Locking - 5K

  5. ICE - 6-7K
without having to pay the Excise Duty and 14% registration tax on them.
The above will cost me 30k and add 25k for the A/C.

Considering that Hyd Ex-Showroom rate is at par BLR rates, I would consider the calculation as follows:
OTR : 6.01
Regn: 0.72
Ins : 0.16
Hdlg: 0.05
Total: 6.94
Add on Fitments: 55k
Total under 7.5L
And "Miiinnd Ittt" (Rajinikanth style) the Bolero VLX is for 8.04L in Hyderabad now.

Cheers

The stage where the THAR is parked looks so filmy! They should have prepared the ground just like off-roading rather than keeping few stones around the THAR and paste some sceneries behind the THAR!

Anyways, launch was important, which has finally happened!
