Mahindra & Mahindra has increased the prices of the Thar in the country by up to Rs 1.05 lakh. The automaker has not cited any reason for the price hike. However, speculations are rife that BS6 2.0 updates have likely contributed to the increased prices. Last month, the carmaker reported that the iconic off-roader reached a production milestone of 1 lakh units in India. According to the carmaker, the off-roader attained this massive milestone in less than 2.5 years. The new Thar was first revealed in August 2020, and deliveries began in October 2020. Mahindra believes that the rising popularity of the car in the country is one of the reasons behind its production milestone. Recently, the automaker has increased the price of the SUV in our market. Let's have a look at the revised prices in detail.
