In the video you see here, the new 2020 Mahindra Thar has been rendered as a Police Jeep. Read on to discover how this off-road SUV has been customized to become a cop car
The all-new2020 Mahindra Tharwill be launched in the Indian auto market next month. Since its debut earlier this year, the new off-road SUV has been imagined in numerous forms. The latest rendering of the new SUV is in Police Jeep form, which has been served by the Mahindra Jeep for decades. Below is this rendering which has been uploaded by Youtube channel 'Moto Show'-
The all-new Mahindra Thar AX may actually serve as a great Police Jeep for the following reasons:
In the AX variant, the 2020 Thar is expected to be available in a 6-seat configuration with side-facing seats in the rear, which is what the police forces across the nation desire. A 6-seater car allows the police to easily enter and exit the car and transport criminals.
The new Mahindra Thar is also offered with a soft top, which is something that the Indian police always want.
Considering the fact most auto manufacturers which operate in the affordable vehicle segment have discontinued diesel motors and shifted to petrol only, Mahindra is one of the few carmakers to offer an oil burner even on affordable cars. The new Mahindra Thar receives its power from a 2.2-litre mHawk turbo oil burner and a 2.0-litre turbo gasoline burner. The former can generate 130 BHP against 300 Nm and is mated to a 6-speed MT.
Like the outgoing model, the new Mahindra Thar has great potentialities for modification. Modifications with specific accessories which are appropriate for police forces is one of the main requirements that a police car has to fulfill.
The entry-level Mahindra Thar is anticipated to be priced at INR 10 lakh, which makes it quite reasonably priced.
Mahindra has been well-known for providing Jeeps to the Indian military and paramilitary forces. Inheriting the brand's prestige in this aspect, the 2020 Mahindra Thar could continue to support the Indian forces.
The 2020 Mahindra Thar will be offered in two grades: AX and LX. These two trims receive their power from a 2.2-litre turbo oil burner and a 2-litre turbo gasoline unit. Nevertheless, the 6-speed AT will be offered only on the LX variants. The AX variants will target the off-roaders who are on a limited budget. These variants will miss out on some convenience and safety features. Those who are looking for a well-equipped SUV may choose the LX variants.
