Mahindra Thar #1 bid crosses Rs 1.11 crore mark on last day of auction
Mumbai : The all-new Mahindra Thar is all set to be launched in the Indian market and before the official revealing of the prices, the company started bidding for the first Thar car. Tuesday was the last day to put up a bid for it and the tough fight for the car showed numbers ticking up and up.
While Aakash Minda from New Delhi took it across the Rs 1 crore mark, it was Abhishek Datta from Medinapur who took the bid to the Rs 1.07 crore mark. But with just a few hours to go, Arun from Chennai, surpassed that figure for the Thar #1 at Rs 1.09 crore. But, finally, it was Aakash Minda who bid big in the final few minutes and take the tally to Rs 1.11 crore.
The name of the winner of the auction will be announced on October 2, the day when Mahindra will also announce the selling price of the car for Indian buyers.
The highest bidding price will be used for a good cause and will be donated towards a noble cause related to COVID-19 relief work. The winner can decide that to which organization he wants to donate the money.
The charitable organizations/funds are: Naandi Foundation, which is working to create sustainable livelihoods in the food and agriculture sectors in a post COVID-19 world through upskilling, Swades Foundation, which is building rural life and livelihoods as part of its COVID-19 relief & recovery programme and PM Cares Fund.
The biggest focal point is that the Thar #1 will come with a decorative plate on the dashboard with the serial No.1 written on it.
