This 2020 Mahindra Thar was completely stuck in a garbage dump and rescued by a humble Nuvosport. Watch it here.
One can’t deny that there’s too much excitement around the new Mahindra Thar ever since it was launched in India. We’ve been telling you a number of cases where the new-gen Mahindra Thar performs lively both on the roads and off it. However, it’s a bit of shame for the new Mahindra Thar as it got completely stuck in the garbage dump and must resort to external help from the humble Nuvosport.
According to a video uploaded on Dr.AJMAL KARIM youtube channel, the left front tyre of the 2020 Mahindra Thar gets stuck deeply in the roadside garbage dump and couldn’t get out of it. Interestingly, some guys even climb on the opposite side of the SUV to ensure the weight balance and give the wheels decent traction. However, it doesn’t work until the Mahindra Nuvosport pulled it out without any problem.
How come did Mahindra Thar get into this trouble? While there aren’t any information of the same, we assume that the driver wanted to take a big U-Turn and accidentally caved in the garbage dump. From the look of it, the garbage dump appears like the solid ground but has much water content inside. Therefore, it is extremely slippery like slush and tricky to get out. Possible, the driver of the Thar has no experience in such case that’s why they use the Nuvosport to tug the Thar out without using differential lock assist.
Still, the new-gen Mahindra Thar is a capable SUV. It is powered by a 2.0-litre mStallion turbo-petrol engine that develops 150 BHP of max power and 320 Nm of peak torque. There’s also a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel motor churning out 130 BHP of power and 300 Nm of torque. Both the engines are BSVI-compliant. Transmission choices include both manual and automatic options.
It has registered more than 15,000 bookings ever since the bookings commenced earlier this month. The Mahindra Thar is currently priced from Rs 9.8 lakh for the base trim to Rs 13.75 lakh for the top-end model (ex-showroom, Delhi).
