From 2008: MahindraPlanet Predicts Springfield, Ohio Assembly for Mahindra Trucks


In October of 2008, MahindraPlanet theorized that Mahindra’s connections with Navistar, International Truck and Engine Corporation, could easily lead to an assembly or manufacturing partnership on American soil. Pawan Goenka’s comments last week that Navistar facilities will be the first considered for US truck assembly confirmed the possibility of this prediction.

The post takes the manufacturing prediction one step further, and dreams of a reinvented, modern interpretation of the International Scout based on the Mahindra TR chassis and powertrain. With International’s light truck non-compete agreement with Ford likely null and void, the door is open for a line of pickups and SUV’s with International branding to ride the currently popular retro-styling wave.

Love the vehicle price in the old Scout ad. < 1700 USD.

Some times we ignore the promotion freebies that come with the motor oil that we buy.. Recently i bought a Castrol promotion pack for car but wasn't informed by the dealer that the scratch card offer to enter the lucky draw to go to South Africa World cup games and the dealer has assured gifts that we can collect at the time of purchase. Make sure you ask your service dealers for the contest details if you buy one in the near future and collect your assured gift :)
