In August of last year, we had news of India's Mahindra and Mahindra planning to bring their Scorpio SUV to the States. Apparently, they have firmed up those plans and contracted with Atlanta's Global Vehicles USA to be the sole distributor. According to Advertising Age, Global has signed up 195 Mahindra dealers and plans to add 105 more before sales begin in fall of 2008. While the Mahindra SUV was expected, Global's advertising agency, Titan, let slip that Global will also import a "sport recreational vehicle" and a two-door pickup. The agency said all three would be turbo diesel powered.

While we don't know for sure the exact models Mahindra will send us, unless they have designed all-new U.S. spec vehicles, the pickup above, called the PIK Up, is one likely suspect. And we're just not sure what a "sport recreational vehicle" is. We guess it will be Titan's job to tell us.
