In April 2024, the waiting time for the Mahindra Thar has slightly decreased.

Mahindra Thar Waiting

The pricier Thar 4×4 models are up for grabs much quicker compared to their 4×2 counterparts.

Mahindra has been putting a lot of effort into tackling the backlog of orders for its popular models such as the Scorpio N, XUV700, and the Thar. By ramping up production and improving the number of deliveries each month, they’ve managed to slightly reduce the wait time for the Thar. While you might get your hands on a 4×4 Thar just two months after booking, the 4×2 versions are still facing a long wait, stretching up to 10 months. Let’s delve into this a bit more.

Mahindra Thar 4×4 waiting period

The 4×4 versions of the Thar now have a wait time of about 6 weeks to 2 months, which is shorter than the 3-month wait back in February 2024. These 4×4 models come with two engine choices: a powerful 152hp, 2.0-liter turbo-petrol and a 132hp, 2.2-liter diesel. You can pick between a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic for both engines. Plus, they come with a manual-shift 4×4 transfer case, and some models even have a manual-locking differential.

As for the prices, the Thar 4x4s range from Rs 14.30 lakh to Rs 17 lakh for petrol variants and from Rs 14.85 lakh to Rs 17.60 lakh for diesel variants, all excluding showroom costs in Delhi.

Mahindra Thar 4×2 waiting period

The waiting time for the Thar’s diesel 4×2 models is at its highest, stretching from 9 to 10 months for the two available trims. On the other hand, if you’re eyeing the petrol 4×2 versions, you won’t have to wait as long – the maximum waiting period is around 4 months. This is actually an improvement of about a month from what it was in February 2024. Just a heads up, the Thar 4×2 only comes with a hardtop.

Under the hood, the Thar 4×2 packs a 1.5-liter diesel engine churning out 118hp and 300Nm of torque. There’s no automatic gearbox available for the diesel 4×2, only a 6-speed manual gearbox. As for the 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine, it’s the same one you’ll find in the Thar 4×4 and comes paired exclusively with a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

When it comes to pricing, the Thar 4×2 is more wallet-friendly, ranging from Rs 11.25 lakh to Rs 14 lakh. That’s because these models fall into a lower tax bracket for sub-4m vehicles, which also means there’s higher demand for them.
