Mahindra Thar 5-door: Anticipated Launch in 2024

The upcoming Mahindra Thar 5-door, potentially named the Thar Armada, is one of the most anticipated car launches of 2024. Sources indicate that series production has begun at Mahindra's Chakan plant.

Key Highlights:

  • Mahindra plans to produce 5,000-6,000 units of the Thar 5-door per month.
  • Dealers are already accepting unofficial bookings.
  • Higher variants will feature a panoramic sunroof and ADAS Level 2.

Initially, Mahindra aimed to produce around 2,500 units monthly (approximately 30,000 units annually), but due to high demand, this has increased to nearly 5,000-6,000 units per month, potentially reaching an annual production of around 70,000 units.

Thar 5-door Features:

A more practical alternative to the existing 3-door Thar, offering a longer wheelbase, more cabin space, and additional luggage room.

  • A wide range of powertrain options: from an entry-level RWD 1.5-litre diesel to a fully loaded 2.2-litre diesel with 4WD. A 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine will also be available.
  • Automatic gearbox options for all engines, appealing to urban users.
  • Positioned at multiple price points, it is expected to impact the sales of other Mahindra SUVs like the Scorpio Classic, Scorpio N, and XUV700.

Additional Features:

  • Multiple airbags and Level 2 ADAS in higher variants.
  • Options in infotainment screens, upholstery, LED lighting, alloy wheel design, and sunroofs, with higher variants getting a panoramic unit.

Official bookings are expected to commence in the coming months, with more details to be revealed soon.
