Mahindra Thar’s 5-door Production begins

The brand has already increased the production capacity for the Thar 5-door in response to the high interest from interested buyers that has been conveyed by dealers. The company earlier planned a monthly production of around 2,500 units initially which now increased to more than double at 5,000 to 6,000 units a month. This could take the annual production of the Thar 5-door from around 30,000 units to 70,000 units.

The upcoming 5-door Thar will be a more practical variant of its existing 3-door model. It will feature a longer wheelbase with more cabin space along with more boot space, something missing on the Thar 3-door.

Thar Armada will also get a wide range of features including advanced safety tech compared to its 3-door model which includes multiple airbags and Level 2 ADAS. Furthermore, there will be options in infotainment screens depending on variants, LED lighting, upholstery, new alloys and even a panoramic sunroof.

Similar to the standard Thar, Mahindra will set the Thar 5-door at multiple price points due to a wide variety of powertrain options that will be on offer including an entry-level RWD 1.5-litre diesel and a higher-spec 2.2-litre diesel units alongside a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine.

Some dealerships have already started accepting bookings for Thar Armada, despite no official booking announcements from Mahindra.
