Though the release date is still in question and the car has yet to be spotted, it is clear that Mahindra and Mahindra is working on a five-door version of their off-road vehicle Thar. This vehicle will compete directly against the India-specific Maruti Suzuki Jimny, which should make its debut at the 2023 Auto Expo. Though it's unclear when this vehicle will come out, it should make an appearance during the 2023 Auto Expo in January.
It is anticipated that the longer Force Gurkha will go on sale in the coming months. At the same time, it does not appear to be the case, given reports show that its launch will happen only in 2024, following its debut in India in 2023.
With Mahindra's absence at the 2023 Auto Expo in Greater Noida, the chances of the five-door Thar making a debut have been long gone. Despite regular sightings of test mules across the country, if this report turns out to be true, we can expect it to be unveiled sometime in late 2024 before reaching showrooms in early 2024.

The homegrown SUV manufacturer has been successfully tapping its latest launches, such as the ScorpioN and Scorpio Classic XUV700. The waiting period for some variants of the ScorpioN goes up to 24 months and for the XUV700 it's about 15 months in most parts of India.
The second generation Thar, introduced in 2020, has been well received by customers. To meet demand, production will be ramped up next year to lower the waiting period. The extended wheelbase version of the Thar may not make it to dealerships next year, but there's a possibility the three-door variant could gain new variants.
The Mahindra Thar will have five doors and seat up to six people comfortably. It'll sit atop a ladder frame construction and come in a range of seating configurations with different roof options to choose from. The 2.2-litre mHawk four-cylinder diesel engine and the 2.0-litre mStallion four-cylinder petrol engines could be offered in different power and torque outputs.
