Old Mahindra Thar stuck: New Thar to the rescue

Mahindra Thar has been in the market for a very long time. Last year, Mahindra had launched the next generation Thar in the market. Ever sine then we have seen several review, off-road and modification videos of the same on the internet. Last generation Mahindra Thar has been an absolute favourite among off-road enthusiasts and is a common SUV on such events. We have seen several videos of last generation Mahindra Thar doing off-roading but, here we have a video where an old generation Mahindra Thar that is stuck in the mud is rescued by all new Thar.

The video has been uploaded by Small Town Rider on his YouTube channel. The video shows a group of SUV owners who are doing off-roading on a river bed. There is not much water to be seen anywhere on the river bed. There are couple of Mahindra Thars, Willys Jeep and several other SUVs participating in this. There are several mud pits where the SUV can easily get stuck.

First, a Mahindra Thar is driven on a flat sandy surface and then it comes to a small water crossing with little water in it. The section is quite tricky as there is a small climb on the other side of the crossing. The sand on the surface is quite loose and with water running next to it, there is a good chance that the Thar gets stuck in it. The first Mahindra Thar however did not face any of these issues and smoothly climbed up this section.

The Thar that followed the first one however was not as lucky as the first one. The driver could not maintain the momentum and it got stuck. Driver soon took it in reverse and then brought it back but, even that did not help. The tyres were loosing grip as the grooves were filled with sand. This Mahindra Thar had already dug the track and when he approached the section, it got stuck. The car was not moving in reverse or was going forward. The SUV got beached and the tyres also had no traction in it.

Driver tried removing the sand and mud and tried moving it in reverse but, all those efforts were in vain. Smoke had started coming out front as the clutch had started to burn. Finally when they realised that the Thar was not going anywhere, they brought the all-new Mahindra Thar and tied the stuck old generation Thar to the rear using a tow rope. Within no time, the all-new Thar pulls the stuck SUV out from the mud.

The key here was momentum, the driver on the olde generation Thar could not maintain a constant momentum and that is the reason why it got stuck. After the Thar got rescued, it had cleared the same section and many other without getting stuck. Along with Mahindra Thar, the Willys is also seen enjoying off-roading in the video. The all-new Mahindra Thar is no seen off-roading in this video but, we have seen several other video of the same on the internet.
