Mahindra is also planning to launch the 5-door version of the Thar soon. The lifestyle SUV has been spotted testing on Indian roads across the year. Newer leaks suggest that the 5-door Thar will get design tweaks on the front grille and LED headlamps in order to differentiate it from its 3-door sibling. On August 15, the automaker announced its plans to launch an all-electric Thar in the coming years. However, the release of the Born Electric series is what’s next on the cards for Mahindra.
