The Mahindra Thar is a compact and mid-size four-wheel drive off-road Jeep CJ-like SUV manufactured by Indian automaker Mahindra & Mahindra Limited. The vehicle was launched in the Indian market on October 4, 2010 to fill the void left by its predecessor the Mahindra MM540. The Thar has been voted one of the top 10 SUVs available in the Indian market. Three variants - DI 2WD, DI 4WD and CRDe, are available with soft top version.
The Thar also comes with a 7-seater option, though it can be converted into a two seater.
On March 2, 2018, Mahindra Automotive North America unveiled a variant of the Thar for the United States market called the Roxor at its assembly plant in Auburn Hills, Michigan. It is assembled from complete knock-down kits. Unlike the Thar, the Roxor is not street legal, and is positioned as a Side by Side off-road vehicle with a top speed of 45 mph. The Roxor is powered by a 2.5L turbodiesel four-cylinder engine producing 62 hp and 144 lb-ft of torque, mated to a five-speed manual transmission. An automatic transmission is available as an option. It is only available with two seats, a 148-inch body length, and a 96-inch wheelbase.
