They are planning on entering the American market with a diesel hybrid SUV! Whoa! Even if it is underpowered, this very well may be the ideal mall-rated highly efficient SUV. I wonder about the general reliability of these Indian units. I'll be watching this. Also check out the Tata Sumo, uglier, but apparently more popular in India.
We have Mahindra Pikups in Australia which sound the same as a Bolero. It's fine - a good work horse. My hubbie has one, and he's a brick layer. Goes well for all his tools and the 4x4 copes well with Australian off roading as well as building site mud. The interior is pretty awful, but at it's price point here it's good. I like it more than Chinese builds. The Mahindras are historically tractors and are mainly reliable with tougher build than the Great Wall.
