I don’t think anyone in the public can accurately comment on the ongoing saga between the two parties. There’s been to many unknowns. Before passing judgment we’ll have to wait until the dust settles. Until then, I find comfort in the fact that Mahindra’s pickups have received EPA certification. Come on Mahindra – the compact/pickup segment needs you and your high MPG diesel engine! Stories about the segment dying and trucks like the Ranger and Colorado bring phased out are getting tiring.
