Mahindra and Mahindra had recently removed the lower-spec AX STD (Standard) and AX variants of the newly launched Thar from the company's official website. With the revision of these variants, currently, only the higher-spec AX Option and LX variants are on sale in India. When we reached out to the company, Mahindra told carandbike, "Due to overwhelming demand, we are currently focussing booking on only the AX (O) and LX variants of the All-New Thar." However, in its email, the company did not mention whether the lower-spec AX STD and AX variants will be re-introduced or not.

The company recently said that it has received over 20,000 bookings for the new Mahindra Thar so far. As of now, the Thar sees a waiting period of 5-7 months, depending on the variants. To meet the increased orders, the company will be ramping up production from 2,000 units per month to 3,000 units per month by January 2021. So, we would expect the company to bring back at least the AX variants a few months later, once it manages to address the existing demand.

Customers can get the new Mahindra Thar with either a convertible soft-top roof or a fixed hard-top roof

Now, the new Mahindra Thar was launched in India, starting at ₹ 9.80 lakh, but with the revision of the variants, the 4x4 SUV is now priced from ₹ 11.90 lakh, going up to ₹ 13.75 lakh. Based on the engine, transmission and roof options, Mahindra still offers about 12 different trims of the Thar. Furthermore, all the variants that are on offer come with the 4-seater cabin layout as standard, which means the side-facing jump seats are no longer on offer with the new Thar. As for roof option, customers still have the option to choose between a convertible soft-top roof or a fixed hard-top roof.
