Mid-last month, Mahindra had announced raising production of Thar after receiving an overwhelming response to the new Thar. The new version of Thar was launched on October 2. Priced between 9.8 lakh and 13.75 lakh (ex-showroom), Mahindra has introduced the model in two trims - AX and LX - with both petrol and diesel powertrain options.

All the variants of new Thar come with a four-wheel drive set-up. Mahindra had held the online auction for the All-New Thar to raise funds for Covid-19 relief efforts. The winning bidder had the option to choose from three non-profit organisations, to donate the proceeds of the auction, and Minda opted for the Swades Foundation, with Mahindra matching the winning bid to bring the total donation amount to 2.22 crore.
