The iconic Mahindra Thar, synonymous with adventure and off-road capability, continues to attract a loyal following. The Thar, available in both diesel and petrol variants, including the popular rear-wheel-drive option, boasts 71,000 bookings. This strong demand reflects the increasing interest in SUVs that offer both everyday practicality and weekend escapes. Mahindra is coming up with the Thar 5 door soon and with the launch of that the number of bookings will increase significantly.

What Drives the Demand?

Several factors contribute to the popularity of these Mahindra SUVs. The brand’s strong heritage, robust build quality, and competitive pricing are key attractions. Additionally, Mahindra’s focus on offering a diverse range of options across various segments, from the rugged Thar to the feature-packed XUV700, caters to a wider audience.

To address the high demand and reduce waiting periods, Mahindra is ramping up production across its manufacturing facilities. However, ongoing supply chain challenges and the global chip shortage continue to pose hurdles. The company is also exploring strategies to improve production efficiency and optimize inventory management.

With a strong order book and continued demand for its SUV portfolio, Mahindra is well-positioned for continued growth in the Indian market. The company’s focus on innovation, product development, and customer satisfaction is expected to further solidify its position as a leading player in the segment.
