The sport usefulness vehicle from Mahindra & Mahindra is getting prepared to launch the Thar jeep in India, in December 2010. At Bologna Motor Show, Mahindra had showcased the Thar concept. The Thar is motorized by a 4 cylinder, 2500 cc turbo diesel direct injection common rail engine producing 107Kw of power.

Thar promises exciting off-road action, tied to a 5-speed gear box manual transmission and a Borg Warner Manual Shift transfer case for switching it to 4-wheel drive. Thar has a 2.5-liter CRDI engine that fabricates 105hp and 247Nm.

The body manner of the Mahindra Thar looks like the old MM540 / 550 at the first view. Thar was on display at the Auto Expo 2010 and responses were mixed. It has a kerb weight of 1.75 tons and 200 mm of ground clearance at its lowest position. It has a three door, two-seater (four is an option). It has a broad 235/70 tyres on 16-inch wheels.

Since the past two years in the South African markets, the Thar is sold for 9.5-10 lakh. An official from the company said M&M aim to refine this SUV to suit the Indian demands. Mahindra works out to introduce first in Kerala and Rajasthan, with the price tag of Rs 7 lakhs (approximately) in this December.

A Mumbai-based dealer said on condition of anonymity, “This is a niche, retro-styled product and there will be a lot of young buyers and Jeep fans for such a vehicle.” “As a matter of company policy, we do not comment on any of our future plans or products”.
