Mahindra Thar – Discontinued

All good things come to an end, including the venerable Mahindra Thar which has been discontinued in South Africa. Second-hand Thar models are very popular, so you may have to dig a bit deeper to find the one you want among the used Mahindra vehicles for sale.

Many Thar fans instead choose to buy a used Mahindra TUV300, the excellent Mahindra Xylo MPV or the Mahindra Genio double cab. Stay tuned to our Thar blog for updates on the Mahindra Thar in South Africa.

Mahindra Thar – Live the Adventure!

For more than 70 years the legendary vehicle that is the Mahindra Thar has been at the forefront of some of the world’s most memorable adventures. This is all thanks to Mahindra’s well established relationship with the Willys Jeep, and a licensing agreement that dates back to 1945. Officially launched as a fully independent Mahindra brand in 2010, the Thar has become the modern day adventurer’s car of choice across the Indian subcontinent and beyond!

The latest iteration of the Mahindra Thar is more than simply an affordable all-terrain vehicle, it is also a tough come-what-may 4WD Recreational Vehicle (RV) that is perfect for the South African on and off road driving environment. Armed with the ever impressive Borg Warner 4WD System, there is very little the Mahindra Thar cannot handle terrain wise thanks to its amazing 2.48 crawl ratio in low-range, its remarkably high approach and departure angles of 44º and 27º respectively, and its massive overall ground clearance of 200mm.

Are you ready to experience the exhilaration of driving a vehicle that is a direct automotive descendant of the legendary Second World War Jeep? Then stand to attention, pull your boots on, and jump into the action packed world that is the everyday life of a Mahindra Thar owner.

Mahindra Thar Stylings

Designed and built to withstand the harsh Indian climate and terrain, the Mahindra Thar is as businesslike as it gets, but thanks to it inherent spirit of adventure and iconic looks, it is also immensely appealing. So much so in fact that it could easily be mistaken for a much more expensive vehicle, and makes a good vehicle for those of us who are seeking both on and off road excitement.

Mahindra Thar Overview

With a roof that comes off, the Mahindra Thar is as amazing a convertible 4WD vehicle as you’re ever going to get in South Africa!

It is a car that will put a genuine smile on your face, while also ensuring that the automotive history of the general purpose vehicle isn’t forgotten.
