Mahindra introduced the much-awaited new-gen Thar SUV in the Indian market earlier in October at a starting price of 9.80 lakh (ex-showroom). The company announced recently that it has clocked over 15,000 bookings for the Thar 2020. Customer deliveries of the all-new model are set to begin in the first week of November.

Waiting period for the all-new Thar has stretched up to over 3 months on select variants, dealer sources have confirmed. The longer waiting period is said to be mainly on the automatic diesel variants. The company has informed in the past that it is now ramping up capacity to cater to the demand in a timely manner.
