Your Wait For A New Mahindra Thar Just Got Even Longer

The next-gen off-roader continues to garner loads of interest and booking milestones since its launch on October 2, 2020


  • Waiting periods for most cities are up to 6 months.

  • Thane, Chandigarh, Pune, Hyderabad and Mumbai have the highest waiting period.

  • Hard-top variants have a higher waiting period than the soft-top variants.

  • Mahindra recently  revealed that half of Thar’s customers have opted for automatic variants.

  • The 2021 Thar now retails from Rs 12.10 lakh and Rs 14.15 lakh (ex-showroom). 

  • It is offered in AX Opt and LX variants with convertible soft-top and hardtop options. 

Mahindra’s latest iteration of the Thar has become quite popular in the Indian auto industry ever since its launch back in October 2020. Naturally, this has led to booking milestones and long waiting periods of up to nine months in certain cities. That said, production has been ramped up in January from 2,000 to 3,000 units, so the waiting period may come down marginally. The Thar also recently received a price hike with the latest prices ranging between Rs 12.10 lakh and Rs 14.15 lakh (ex-showroom). Here’s how long you’ll have to wait for a new Thar in the country:

The waiting period in most cities is up to six months. Thane, Chandigarh, Pune, Hyderabad and Mumbai have the longest waiting period of around 38 weeks (nine months). The wait for hard-top variants has been higher than the soft-top variants, with a recent sales report by Mahindra revealing that half of the Thar’s customers have opted for automatic variants.


Mahindra offers the Thar in the AX Opt and LX variants in convertible soft-top and hardtop options. It is powered by a 150PS 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 130PS 2.2-litre diesel unit. Both engines get a 4x4 drivetrain and can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.  

Keep in mind that those who have booked the Thar from January 8 onwards will have to pay the final price applicable during the time of delivery. So there might be another price hike on the horizon. It currently doesn’t have any rivals, but it will take on the likes of the upcoming Force Gurkha BS6 and Maruti Suzuki Jimny.
