      2012 M & M Thar CRDE 4x4 launched with AC and engine immobiizer



      Mahindra has finally launched the Thar CRDe 4X4 SUV with factory fitted air conditioning and an engine immobilizer as standard piece of kit. The Mahindra Thar SUV is an extremely focused on-off road vehicle mainly aimed at off roading enthusiasts. This has resulted in the automaker not offering creature comforts in the Thar. For folks wanting to buy the Thar as a daily drive, the lack of air conditioning makes it an extremely uncomfortable proposition, especially considering that the temperatures in many tropical parts of the country can soar to the extreme highs.

      The 2012 Mahindra Thar CRDe 4×4 with air conditioning and engine immobilizer will sell at INR 6.86 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi and that price is a full 87 thousand rupees higher than the non AC 4X4 version.So, this much needed move from Mahindra, even as the sultry Indian summer is just kicking in, couldn’t have come at a better time. The Thar is also available in direct injection engine guise, which is much cheaper than the CRDe engined version. However, since the Thar DI is aimed mainly at the rural market, air conditioning and the engine immobilizer will not be available on the DI engined variants.

      The Thar CRDe features a 105 Bhp-247 Nm, 2.5 liter common rail turbo diesel engine. This engine is mated to the a five speed manual transmission, with the 4X4 system activated through the Borg Warner manual transfer case. The fit and finish on the Thar has been a big cause of concern for both current owners and prospective owners, considering that the CRDe engined version costs more than many B+ hatchbacks. This is something that prospective owners will hope Mahindra will change in the latest versions of this SUV, of which there is frankly no alternative in India, for the time being at least.

      Now thats good news to the prospective buyers !!! Mahindra has always taken the customers feedback and worked on them and released good vehicles hope they are already working on the interior fit and finish part too.. 3 cheers to Mahindra for growing to this level and XUV500 is one of the best examples they have set from my Indian manufacturer

      Hmm..87k for the AC and immobaliser.

      What changes have they done to the dash for the blowers and controls to be incorporated ?

      2012 Mahindra Thar With AC Launched

      Mahindra has quietly slipped in an updated version of the Thar for the Indian market. The Indian automaker has added the crucial air-conditioner and engine immobilizer as a standard piece of equipment on the Thar. When Mahindra launched the Thar sans AC, many were quite upset about it as the high pollution in the atmosphere makes it impossible to drive without an AC. Mahindra told buyers to opt for AC, but an after market AC is not as reliable as a factory fitted one and could also void the warranty of the vehicle.

      The air-conditioner has been added to the CRDe Thar only and the DI version does not get it yet. The Mahindra Thar with these new features is priced at Rs. 6.86 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The price hike of close to Rs. 90,000/- is a significant one, considering the addition of just two features in the Thar. The Mahindra Thar CRDe is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine which produces 105 BHP of peak power at 3800 RPM and 247 Nm of peak torque at 1800 RPM. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and the Thar has 4-wheel drive system as standard. With a ground clearance of 200 mm, the Thar is well suited to off-roading and is one of the best ways to conquer the urban jungle.

      Finally with a hard top and an AC. Initially when it came with a soft top everyone rejected it. Now let us see how it does on the sales part. But they should have reduced the pricing IMO.

      There were reports in the media section that it will be hard tops with AC. DOn't know what changes they will bring in. Have to wait and see then.

      hmm..and I thought the dash would be changed too.
      these 'upgrades' should've made it in the launch itself.
