The impressive booking number comes as no surprise since the Mahindra Thar has been garnered special attention from the Indian customers long before it hits the market. Fans of this iconic off-roader are so excited about the new model that they send booking request as soon as the order books open, despite the fact that, in the beginning, the test drive models are only available on 18 select cities across India.
Commenting on the initial success of the Mahindra Thar, Veejay Nakra, Chief Executive Officer, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, said,
“We are extremely happy with the overwhelming response and excitement that the all-new Thar has created. What is also encouraging is that it has resonated well with the lifestyle seekers, families and women buyers, thereby opening an entirely new set of customers for this iconic 4X4 SUV.”
According to him, with 9,000 bookings within a few days, Mahindra Thar has set a new record for the segment. He also shares that the company will try to provide the demo models in more cities, allowing the interested customers from across the country to test drive the new Mahindra Thar.
