New Wheels With Hormazd Sorabjee: Is Mahindra’s Thar The Best Option In The Leisure Segment?
BloombergQuint’s New Wheels Podcast with Hormazd Sorabjee helps you make up your mind before you go car shopping this festive season.
The Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown that followed early this year aided the fast-growing leisure segment in India’s car market, according to Hormazd Sorabjee, editor of Autocar India. Many would-be car buyers, he said, having been cooped up at home for several months, felt the urge to break the shackles.
That explains the reception to the latest iteration of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd.’s Thar sport utility vehicle. Bookings crossed 20,000 a month after the launch and the waiting period went up to seven months.
But what does the new Thar offer? Is it the best option in the leisure segment? Are there any launches expected that prospective buyers should be aware of?
Sorabjee answers all these questions and more on this final episode of the New Wheels Podcast.
