Lately, Mahindra and Mahindra announced its latest offering- the 2020 Mahindra Thar SUV to the youngest member of the winning Indian team in Australia after their exploits at the final test in Brisbane. Anand Mahindra, the Chairman of the conglomerate, took to social media to praise the six cricketers- Shubman Gill, T Natarajan, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj, Washington Sundar, and Shardul Thakur- after they stood up against expectations and helped the team to win the series.
The Chairman took to Twitter and wrote, “Theirs are true ‘Rise’ stories; overcoming daunting odds in the pursuit of excellence. They serve as an encouragement in all arenas of life. This gives me a personal pleasure to gift each of these debutants an all-new THAR SUV on my own account—at no extra expense to the company.”
In praise of the young players, Mahindra said, “Six young men made their debuts in the recent historic series #INDvAUS (Shardul’s 1 earlier appearance was short-lived due to injury) They’ve made it possible for future generations of youth in India to dream & Explore the Impossible”.
Mahindra reasoned as to why he decided to gift Thar SUV to all six and stated that the reason for the gift was to exhort young people to believe in themselves & ‘Take the road less traveled.’ This new generation of Mahindra Thar was officially launched on October 2 last year. It is one of the most successful SUVs launched by Mahindra in recent times. The Mahindra Thar SUV also passed the safety crash test which is conducted by the global safety rating agency Global NCAP with four-star ratings.
