Bombshell! Mahindra Has Not Applied for EPA Certs, Delays Likely?



PickupTrucks.com broke news yesterday that Mahindra has still not applied for US Environmental Protection Agency certification. The certification is required for Mahindra to prove that they meet all federal emissions requirements in order to sell the TR20 and TR40 pickups in the United States.

US launch of the Indian-made diesel pickup trucks have been delayed several times over the last two years. Could this cause further delays in availability at the 300+ dealers that have been established around the country?

As of late yesterday, dealers had not received any statements from Mahindra truck importer, Global Vehicles, regarding this news. The level of disappointment in the US Mahindra truck fan community is significant to say the least.

Previous statements from Global Vehicles indicated that Mahindra trucks would receive EPA and NHTSA approvals in the first quarter of 2010.

We will update as we learn more…

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 :)
