Here’s a recent video which shows how the new-gen Mahindra Thar performing in deep snow and slipper conditions of Gulmarg
Mahindra recently launched the new-gen Thar in our market. Early this month, the carmaker initiated deliveries of the SUV. Owners of the all-new Mahindra Thar have started taking the off-roader to various places to test its capabilities. Here’s a recent video where Mahindra Thar can be seen on snow, and we guess it’s the first time that the Mahindra SUV is seen performing on such a snowy and slippery condition. Watch the video embedded below to know the snow capabilities of the new-gen Mahindra Thar.
This video has been uploaded by a YouTube channel named as Kashmir OffRoad, and it has been recorded in Gulmarg. The video starts by showing heavy snow falling on the road, and the new-gen Mahindra Thar was trying to make a U-turn. Nevertheless, as soon as the off-roader takes a U-turn, it got stuck and started slipping on the snow. A few people were sitting inside the car, and the tourists were also pushing the SUV. Afterwards, to rescue the car, traction boards were used to offer an adequate amount of traction. The Mahindra Thar you see here is in stock form and employs stock tyres. The stock model of the SUV comes with all-terrain tyres, which does not offer enough grip to counter slippery surfaces. It can do a really good job with branded aftermarket tyres.
Moreover, in this situation, the experience of drive also matters. Talking about the new-gen Mahindra Thar, the carmaker has received more than 20,000 bookings of the SUV in just a short span of time. Mechanically, it derives power from a 2.0-litre petrol engine, which puts out power and torque outputs of 150bhp and 320 Nm. It also gets propelled by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that produces 130bhp of peak power and 320 Nm of twisting force. Transmission duties are done by a 5-speed MT or a 5-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The new-gen Mahindra Thar is retailed at a starting price of Rs 9.80 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
