Dear all TeamBHP colleagues - first of all, a very genuine "THANK YOU", all you wonderful people out there. It was hard to keep quiet for a long time but it was worth it.

Your help has converted my Thar dream into reality today. Thank you once again for taking the time from your schedules to see the Thar launch live. The real work starts now, so my core team and I go back to work.

By the way - "how do you make the Thar CRDe better than what it is today? . Let the interactions begin.

Please accept my best personal regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Stones were not kept around the Thar, Thar was actually driven on those stones.
IMO, it was a suitable stage for Thar as an 'Go anywhere' vehicle.

& Yes.. The product launch is more important.

Media guys were given offroading test drives.
I am not sure if GTO or anyone else from TBHP were present. Waiting for someone to post a review here.

Sirji, a heartfelt congrats and clap to you (and your team) for your tireless effort in getting this out. You guys should be proud of what you have accomplished.

Arre saar, do you want people to wait for another 4 years to buy a "New Improved" THAR? Let people buy this one itself. It's should be more than good for what people intend to buy it for

Enthusiasts will buy it at this price too , but to get the young crowd buy this (first vehicle for people new into jobs) it cud have been priced lower. 7L shud be with a/c power steering alloys and everything

Anyways a person like me would prefer to put his money on bikes
with this pricing the target audience will be more like 35 to 45 year olds, with some midlife crises thrown in.

First thing, please throw away that bull bar and fit with one like what Kandaisa (Souman) has installed on his MM440....

1. Add a hard top (as a accessory or factory fitted)
2. Add a factory fitted AC

Add the above 2 and we have a Metro Thar in the making

Many Thanks for all the spectacular effort of the Thar team; indeed an outstanding achievement for a mighty company like Mahindras.

One request from my side, please make the 'Thar Adventure' as a standard variant (off the dealers shop) and not as a Mahindra-customisation. As I would not prefer to send the vehicle (after registration from Bangalore RTO) to Mumbai to make it look that way..

It should be atleast be 'on-order' basis; hope the majority of the folks think this way!.

Cheers

Helo DB sir,

This is what I like in the front instead of that Classic type bull bar.... It will change the look of Thar a lot...

Dear Behram Sir, please accept a standing ovation from all of us here.. Congratulations to you and the entire team (including the Team Bhpians who were involved in the evolution of the Thar from being a mere concept to making it to production). We are might pleased that your efforts have resulted in the Thar becoming a reality for us.
Cheers
Uday

BTW, I prefer the white Thar as shown on the FB pages..

Thanks to all you guys out here. Let the evolution of this product stand as a benchmark in the annals of Indian Automotive Industry. Without all your support this would not have been possible, Thank you Team BHP.

I think it is appropriate for me to introduce my wonderful R&D core team, who have made this day possible. The pic shows our first Engineering Prototype just out from our Protoshop. I am missing Amol Wagh (our Trim and ELV champ) and Nilesh Shivale (our little cherubic designer) in this pic, sorry!Name:  image001.jpg

Special mention of Dhabhar Sir, without whom THAR would have never seen the light of day. PERIOD! I guess, among all my team mates I along with Dhabhar Sir are the only few people who have seen this product evolve right from the Mechanical prototype -> Engineering prototype -> Job1 (Final sale able product). Me and all my team mates would rightly concur on his unstinting support, unswerving aggression and relentless passion in the evolution of this product. I bow down and salute you!

Spike

PS- For me as a 24 year old, who learnt driving on a MM540DP witnessing its inception in a new avatar is truly an inexplicable feeling!

Congratulations to Mr.Behram and his team for finally bringing out the Thar. I was looking at getting the Crde as an offroader for myself but the sales guys or the person at the Auto show being unable to give me an estimated time frame to release and waiting for months, i have gone and booked a Gypsy. It was only on sunday at the fiat meet that i chanced to meet Mr.Behram and he told me of the launch date. The damage was already done by then.

^^ Speedy, guessing a gypsy usually takes a month or 2 before delivery, try to persuade Behram sir for a speedy' delivery of a Thar in case you are still half-minded over a gypsy...
