Mahindra ALSV – The Armored Light Specialist Vehicle has been specifically designed by the brand for the military and defence forces. The brand has designed the vehicle with a modular design that can be further upgraded as per the situation for accomplishing various roles.

The brand has further tested the ALSV against 7.62 x 51mm ball rounds in addition to testing it for HE36 hand grenades. The Mahindra ALSV has further undergone survivability tests and has been a part of the Government Defence Force’s trail and test program that was carried on for about 18 months.

The Mahindra ALSV has been equipped with a load-carrying capacity of 400 kgs of cargo while the modular design is capable of mobility at the front, side and rear according to the STANAG Level I Ballistics and Blast levels.

The brand has further offered the ALSV with large storage space for guns and arms in addition to accommodating four crew members. The vehicle can be further upgraded to STANAG Level II Ballistics according to the requirements.

This is the Best Modified Mahindra Thar We Have Ever Seen: Mahindra Thar is the closest cousin that Jeep Wrangler could get in the Indian car market. When comparing the prices for both of them, one could say that Thar is actually a value-for-money product within the off-road universe. Jeep Studio, a Coimbatore-based modifier, once worked on the last-gen model of Mahindra Thar and brought this beautiful product at the end.

Perfectly Modified Mahindra Thar
This is the Best Modified Mahindra Thar We Have Ever Seen

Transforming the Mahindra Thar into Wrangler took a lot more than just putting new parts on the existing panels. It was a deep study based on the architecture of both Thar and the three-door model of the Wrangler that helped Jeep Studio achieve perfection in the final design.

Not even a single change was made in such a way that it would have made servicing the vehicle tough for Mahindra dealerships. All parts around the engine bay were kept stock as that would have helped the customer get easy spares in case of an emergency. Still, the biggest change was the addition of a metal roof that runs right from the Thar’s windshield to the rear end of the SUV.

Apart from the front glass windows, a non-movable and toughened glass window has been used for the rear section. Rearview mirrors were borrowed from an actual Jeep Wrangler while the interior has been given a premium finish for enhanced driving feel. The front and rear lights have been replaced with LED units while a complete front-end transformation has been given for the premium Jeep feel. The Maxxis off-road tyres further helped this Thar gain more muscle during its transformation.

Apart from the donor Thar, one will need to pay around INR 6.50 lakhs to Jeep Studio in order to get all these changes. The modifier left the engine and performance section untouched for the exclusive Mahindra Thar-style riding. The last-gen model of the SUV was powered by a 2498cc, four-cylinder turbo diesel engine producing 105BHP of power and 247Nm of torque. The engine was mated to a 5-speed gearbox while 4×4 was standard on the top-spec model.

2021 Maruti Baleno Spotted Testing in India: A test mule of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno has been recently spotted conducting test trials with a strain gauge apparatus. As per the details available, the company is planning to launch a new variant of Baleno in India. It could be the much-awaited BS6 diesel version or a new hybrid variant of the petrol version, though the chances of a diesel model are higher.

If it’s a hybrid version, it is expected to feature the same powertrain as that of the Swift Strong Hybrid which was unveiled last year at the Auto Expo in February 2020. Under the hood, the car will be powered by a 1.2-litre dual-jet K-series petrol engine giving a max output of 90bhp and 118 Nm of peak torque and an integrated 10kW electric motor. The electric motor can boost the overall output by 13.4 bhp and 30 Nm and will ramp up the fuel economy up to 32 kmpl. It will also get a regenerative braking system to recharge the battery.

The company is also planning to launch a new mild-hybrid variant that will accompany the powertrain option comprising of a 1.2-litre dual-jet petrol unit that will be paired to a larger 48V battery pack. The battery will send power to the Integrated Starter Generator or ISG which will help the car’s combustion engine and will ensure a smoother ride with improved performance and it will also improve the fuel efficiency of the car.

After the implementation of BS6 emission norms, Maruti Suzuki stopped selling the diesel versions of its cars in India. But the demand for diesel cars is so high that the company has decided to relaunch the diesel variants of its hatchbacks, sedans, and compact SUVs in the coming months.

Meet New Mahindra Thar Adventure Edition by Bimbra 4×4: The next-gen Mahindra Thar is topping the sales charts since its launch back on October 2 last year and now the company is also revamping its production to meet the ever-increasing demand.

Although it’s a new SUV, still a lot of accessories and body kits are already available in the market and a lot of buyers are getting their Thar modified right after taking the delivery.

In yet another modification, Bimbra 4×4, based in Gurugram (Haryana) has modified the new Thar for one of its clients and it has been built for hard-core adventure lovers. Here are the live photos of the custom-made Mahindra Thar Adventure Edition:

With an added snorkel to the new modified Thar, it gives the vehicle an interesting look, while the headlamps are aftermarket LED units. The roof of this typical Thar gets a massive roof rack, with multiple integrated carriers and an added space for other items. Towards the rear, the SUV gets a ladder on each side with panniers for jerry cans. The rear bumper is customized as well with a tow hitch in the middle.

The model is based on a petrol-automatic variant with a hardtop roof, and no changes have been made to the engine. This particular model is also equipped with the ‘Dark Lord’ accessory package which is an official accessories kit offered by Mahindra.

Mechanically, the new model of Thar is available with two engine options. The first one is a 2.0-litre ‘mStallion’ petrol motor, with a peak power of 150 PS and an utmost torque of 320 Nm (300 on MT). The second one is a 2.0-litre ‘mHawk’ diesel mill, which gives the max output of 130 PS and 300 Nm. The SUV is available with 2 transmission options: 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic.
