    That is the 5 door Thar, yes. And there is also a 3 door version.

    The 5 door was released to high acclaim during 2023. There is also a 5 door EV version in the works.

    Unfortunately, much to the disappointment of some, as it currently stands neither the 3 or the 5 door ICE versions will be sold in South Africa for the foreseeable future. This was formerly announced at the big event in around August last year in Cape Town.

    Apparently the reason for this is that there is such a demand for the new Thar in India that Mahindra cant keep up and the waiting list is now around 12 months in those regions. As such, a decision was made to not export this model to other countries "for the time being" because this would compromise supply to these areas.

    Sad indeed. I was getting very excited to see a new generation Thar on our roads. :-(

    Saw this on the Group1 website

    https://www.group1mahindra.co.za/blo...mahindra-thar/

    As you may well have heard by now, especially if you are an off-road enthusiast, Mahindra is launching a new 5-door version of the popular Thar SUV – set for launch internationally in August 2024.

    The global unveiling will take place on 15 August with the Indian-based brand having chosen South Africa for the reveal, which is even more exciting!

    The 3-door Thar is already popular in the off-road lifestyle segment and now the introduction of the 2024 Mahindra Thar 5-door is bound to make some waves.

    5-Door Thar’s New Features?

    While official details are still under wraps, rumour has it the 5-door Thar would retain the rugged styling of the current 3-door model. It will be based on the Mahindra’s third-generation ladder frame chassis, which was introduced with the Scorpio-N in 2022, and is speculated to come with a choice of either a 2.2-litre turbodiesel or a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine.

    The extra doors on the 5-door Thar will mostly allow for more interior space and seat length with revised armrests.

    The interior is also said to feature keyless entry and push-button; a removable hard-top; all-around electric windows; 10.25-inch instrument cluster and infotainment system; a dash camera; and a sunroof – making those adventures that much more fun!

    The price will also increase from the existing 3-door, with the current price of the 3-door around R240 000 to R380 000.

    None of this is confirmed by Mahindra yet for the South African market, but if even half the buzz is true, the 5-door Thar could be a very compelling entrant in the burgeoning lifestyle off-road vehicle segment locally.

    We’ll be sure to provide updates as soon as Mahindra releases official information. In the meantime, gear up for what could be a bigger, badder, yet still hardcore off-road Thar coming in 2024!

    Hi,

    Yes, this is from last year. It's the press release that went out prior to last years event. By the time the event took place the decision had been made that neither model would be coming to SA. :-(

    But do agree, I get the feeling that they are hopefully speculating.

    Hi Tobie,

    That is interesting indeed. Now wouldn't it be nice if they had a change of heart and are going to bring it in after all. I do think that if that did happen, stock would be the issue, which wouldn't help the situation either....

    Here's hoping.

    :-)
