We drive the single-cab 4WD variant of the Indian workhorse
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.
