The Mahindra Thar’s rough look, off-road ability, and low price make it one of India’s most popular SUVs. Over 2.8 lakh Thar bookings as of August 2023 show customer demand for the 2020 launch. This also means that Thar waiting times are rising, especially for some versions and cities. As of October 2023, the 2023 Mahindra THAR Waiting Period varies by version and city.
2023 Mahindra THAR Waiting Period
The waiting period for the Thar depends on several factors, such as the variant, the engine option, the transmission type, the roof type, the colour choice, and the city of delivery. According to the official website of Mahindra, the waiting period for the 2023 Mahindra THAR Waiting Period ranges from 5 months to 18 months as of October 2023. However, this is only an indicative figure and may vary depending on the availability of stock and demand.
The longest waiting period is for the diesel 4×2 variants, which have a waiting period of up to 15-16 months for both the AX Opt and LX trims. The petrol 4×2 variants have a lower waiting period of about 5 months on average. The Thar 4×2 is only available with a hardtop roof option.
4×4 Thars have a less waiting period of 5-6 months on average for petrol, diesel, hardtop, and softtop types. Two engines power the Thar 4×4: a 2.0-litre petrol mStallion with 152hp and 300Nm of torque, and a 2.2-litre diesel mHawk with 132hp and 300Nm. Both engines include 6-speed manual or automated gearboxes. Some Thar 4x4s have manual-locking differentials and manual-shift transfer cases.
