Mahindra Thar RWD is getting a lot of attention, huge waiting period
Mahindra launched the Thar RWD with an attractive price point last month and now the SUV has a huge waiting period. The diesel variant is in great demand and has the longest waiting queue.
As you can see from the table above, Mahindra has managed to streamline the production and deliveries of the Thar to a great extent. The 4WD variants have a waiting period of up to 4 weeks, which means you can get the delivery within a month.
Meanwhile the RWD petrol version has a waiting of up to 5 weeks, which will take a little over a month to deliver. However, the RWD diesel has a crazy waiting time of 74 weeks! Which means you might have to wait for more than a year to get the delivery of this trim. It also depends on the colour option you choose.
The Indian UV maker has nailed the VFM factor with the launch of the RWD trims. It is apt for those who don’t take their cars off-road. The RWD diesel is powered by a XUV300 sourced 1.5-litre diesel producing 117 PS and 300 Nm of torque. The 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine produces 152 PS and 320 Nm torque.
