Mahindra to Launch TR20 & TR40 in March and Deliver in April, US Assembly in Future


The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that Mahindra will first consider Navistar (International Truck and Engine Corporation) facilities first when they begin looking for an assembly location in the United States. A decision on a plant location will be considered around December of 2010, according to Mahindra & Mahindra President, Automotive Sector, Pawan Goenka.

Goenka goes on to say that Mahindra plans to launch the TR20 and TR40 pickups in March of 2010, with vehicle deliveries to start in the April-June quarter.

US vehicle manufacturing will be done on a contract basis with minimal investment in US-based infrastructure for Mahindra. Goenka also mentions that the new SUV platform being developed will be positioned above the current Scorpio model. No timelines are given for US arrival of SUV models.

It's really weird, but if you do a google search for Mahindra Pickup then it gets a hit on the Interview in full.

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 :)
