It is a well known fact that the Mahindra Thar has a big fan following here. It is being bought by people of all age groups: young and old. And now it truely lives up to the statement above because there is even one for kids aged for 3-7 years.
It is a surprising move, but what is more surprising is the features of the car. The baby Thar has a plastic replica steering wheel, push start/stop button, blue-lit instrument console, accelerator & brake foot pedals, gear stick for forward & reverse, front & rear lights, working radio with USB input & speakers, and plastic wheel caps with a bit of chrome.
The Thar ride-on is powered by an electric motor driving the rear wheels, and can touch a top speed of around 3.5-4 KMPH. With a full charge that takes 10-12 hours, the Thar toy gets a run time of around 1-1.5 hours. The toy consists of a 6-Volt battery and a regular two-pin socket charger (offered with the toy). A total of 3 colours are on offer – Red or Napoli Black.
Safety is not being compromised in this vehicle, having a safety belt and a remote control by which an adult can take care of the car. Well, this small wonder can be a big hit for budding auto enthusiasts, at least for having fun. It can be bought from Mahindra dealerships or Babyoye (mom & me) stores across India for Rs. 17,999.
Mahindra has also modified its tagline for these little angels and it now reads “Live younger, Live Freer” and we liked it!
