Mahindra Thar has been in the news ever since it was launched in the market last year. We have seen several review videos and modification videos about the all-new Mahindra Thar on the internet and we have featured some of them on our website too. Mahindra Thar received an overwhelming response from the customers. The demand for Thar is so high that Mahindra had to literally increase the production. The Thar is already sold out till May 2021 and they are also not accepting booking for the base AX trim. If you are planning to experience the all-new Thar there is a good news for you. The all-new Thar is now available on rent and here we have a video that shows how one such rented Thar performed on snow.
The video has been uploaded by Bulu Patnaik on his youtube channel. The vlogger rented the Mahidra Thar from RBTS which is a self drive car rental service in Delhi’s Karol Bagh area. The vlogger along with his wife and kid were driving to Manali for a winter drive. He is driving the diesel automatic with convertible soft top. when the video starts, the roads did not have much snow on it and they were driving in 2WD. After a certain point, they started encountering steep roads with hairpin bends.
The vlogger then switched to 4 high and as soon as he did that, Thar’s character completely changed. It started climbing all those sections effortlessly. Soon they stared spotting snow on road and they also spotted some 2WD SUVs struggling in the snow. There was snow on the road but Thar was finding traction and was smoothly climbing all the turns. Video shows a Kia Seltos that was not able to climb up because it was not finding traction. A Ford Endevour was also seen which lost traction at coupleof turns. It is not known whether, it was a 2WD or a 4×4 Endeavour. Throughout the video, Number of Mahindra Gypsy’s and Mahindra Bolero camper can be seen in the video. The vlogger and his family where surprised by the way Mahindra Thar had performed in snow.
Mahindra is offering Thar will all-terrain tyres which came in handy. It had not lost traction even once. He even tried the hill start assist which stops the car from rolling back if it is stopped at a slope. Thar is also offering Hill descent control which came in handy while driving down some of the snowy section.
When you are driving down a slope, especially when there is snow, it is always a good idea to keep the vehicle in lower gear and maintain a slow speed. Try not to brakes while coming down as the car would slip and the driver will loose control. If you are driving at a hilly area, it is always a good idea to engage 4×4 (better safe than sorry). Mahindra Thar is available with a petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol version is powered by a 2.0 litre mStallion turbocharged engine. It generates 150 Bhp and 320 Nm of torque. The diesel version gets 2.2 litre mHawk turbocharged engine that generates 130 Bhp and 320 Nm of torque. Both version come with manual and automatic gearbox options.
