The response for the new gen Thar is also overwhelming. The demand is so high that the SUV is already sold out till May 2021. We have seen several videos where parents are children are seen gifting cars and bikes to each other. Here we have a video where a vlogger receives a very unique gift from her partner. The gift is an all-new Mahindra Thar SUV.

The video has been uploaded by TNG Vlogs on their youtube channel. The video starts with vlogger doing her daily stuff like creating more content and editing videos. As she was going through her work, she receives a call from her partner saying that there is a gift waiting for her outside her house. Without having any clue about the surprise, she walks out and finds an all-new 2020 Mahindra Thar parked in front of her house. Vlogger gets so excited after seeing the Thar that she can be seen struggling with words.

The vlogger then tells that she was looking for a new car in 15-20 lakh bracket for some time. She had many options in her mind and Thar was not one of them mainly because of the long waiting period. Now that she has the Thar with her, she was really surprised. The vlogger is so excited after seeing the car that she doesn’t even explain which engine and gearbox option she chose.
