Mahindra To Launch Thar Signature Limited Edition SUV

  • May 28, 2019

Mahindra & Mahindra is likely to introduce a limited edition version of its famed off-road sports utility vehicle (SUV) Thar. Christened as the Thar Signature Edition, it will mark the 70th year of the car’s existence. Production will be limited to only 700 units. The company, at the same time, is also developing the new generation Thar to meet the latest safety norms.

Bookings for the limited edition Thar SUV is expected to commence soon and the car is expected to command an ex-showroom price of higher than ₹9.4 lakh. The Thar Signature Edition will sport a number of cosmetic updates. It will have 15-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels like the previous generation Marksman and Scorpio. The new car will also have a shield-shaped front logo, ingrained with the car’s silhouette. Spy images have revealed that the logo will have company chairman Anand Mahindra’s signature. That aside, the vehicle will have a sliver-finished front bumper and bonnet decals. The Thar Signature Edition will come in the Aqua Marine exterior paint scheme which is also being offered on the Marazzo.

Other features in the Thar Signature are expected to remain the same, including the manual AC with heater, front cup holders, and 12V power socket. The car will be hauled by a four-cylinder, 2.5-litre diesel motor which produces 106 PS maximum power and 247 Nm peak torque. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gear system.

The Thar Signature will have black leatherette seat covers. The car is expected to mark the end of the present generation Thar. The new vehicle, however, is unlikely to debut soon. Mahindra is currently testing the third generation Thar. Spy images suggest a hard top version may be available as an assembly line output. The company may showcase the car at the 2020 New Delhi Auto Expo.
