Four Wheeler - - Rpm -

Ev­ery­one’s been say­ing the Mahin­dra Roxor looks like a Jeep, and Fiat Chrysler is do­ing some­thing about it. It has filed a com­plaint with the U.S. In­ter­na­tional Trade Com­mis­sion about the sim­i­lar­i­ties in body de­sign, “re­quest­ing that the Com­mis­sion con­duct an in­ves­ti­ga­tion un­der sec­tion 337 of the Tar­iff Act of 1930, as amended, re­gard­ing Cer­tain Mo­tor­ized Ve­hi­cles and Com­po­nents Thereof. The pro­posed re­spon­dents are Mahin­dra & Mahin­dra Ltd., In­dia and Mahin­dra Au­to­mo­tive North Amer­ica, Inc., Auburn Hills, Michi­gan.” The le­gal way of say­ing, “Hello, doesn’t this look like a Jeep?” From Au­to­mo­tive News: “‘Our ac­tions, prod­ucts, and prod­uct dis­tri­bu­tion (in­clud­ing Roxor) both honor the legacy of the re­la­tion­ship and the terms of our agree­ments with FCA,’ said Rich Ansell, a spokesman for Mahin­dra’s North Amer­i­can unit. ‘Mahin­dra has been co-ex­ist­ing with FCA (and the Jeep brand) for over 25 years in In­dia and in many other coun­tries.’”fw
