Australian Transport News - - Contents -

Just in case you thought oth­er­wise, Mahin­dra is no small fry or johnny- come-lately. Head­quar­tered in In­dia, it’s a gi­ant global con­glom­er­ate em­ploy­ing more than 200,000 peo­ple in over 100 coun­tries. Among other things, it’s the world’s largest pro­ducer of trac­tors (by vol­ume) but has in­ter­ests in things as di­verse as aero­space and de­fence.

Mahin­dra was founded in 1945 and started as­sem­bling Jeeps un­der li­cence from Willys- Over­land. The first Mahin­dra ar­rived in Aus­tralia in 1990 and was a rugged Jeep-style 4WD pow­ered by a Peu­geot diesel made un­der li­cence.
