But, due to the unprecedented effects of 2020, all major automakers had also announced a price hike across their portfolio effective some point in January 2021. Mahindra & Mahindra has followed suit.

It has been generating good sales numbers since its launch. It was recently spotted with new colour schemes – White and Silver. Currently, the Thar 2020 is available in a choice of seven paint schemes – Aquamarine, Napoli Black, Rocky Beige, Red Rage, Mystic Copper and Aqua Marine Galaxy Grey.
