Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. will soon be launching their iconic
Thar SUV with a BSIV compliant M2DICR engine for Rs. 6,13,331 (ex-showroom
Delhi). The move comes at a time when the government is cracking down on poor
emission standards in the country and tightening emission norms and regulations
for the future.
The M2DICR will have the same cubic capacity of 2,523cc but has an
increased torque figure of 195Nm which comes in at 1400rpm and goes upto
2200rpm. The M2DICR engine will put out a higher peak torque figure which also
comes in faster on the rev band and lasts longer when compared with the BS-III
compliant DI engine.
At present the company is retailing the 2,498cc CRDe along with the
two 2,523cc DI and M2DICR engines on the Thar. The M2DICR variant of the Thar however
is more expensive than the starting 2WD DI variant by a little more than Rs.
24,000. At present Mahindra is only offering the M2DCIR variant in a 2WD
option. Stay tuned for more updates!
