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 RV Review
The one, the only, the amazing Mahindra Thar! Based on the iconic Second World War “Jeep”, and built under license by Mahindra since 1945, this is the ultimate off-road vehicle and a must own for all Recreational Vehicle (RV) enthusiasts worldwide. Since 2010 the Mahindra has become the true successor to the MM540, which was also known as Mahindra’s original all-terrain, come-what-may jeep. Built to not just look rugged, the Mahindra Thar is as tough as it gets in the offroad world, and this is all thanks to its 27/44 degree approach/departure angles, which are some of the best in the business.

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.
