Indian automaker Mahindra and Mahindra is reportedly one big step closer to being able to offer its wares in the U.S. market: it has apparently gained emissions approval from the Environmental Protection Agency. The company's TR20 and TR40 trucks are entering an American market that is being abandoned by most other automakers and will be the only offerings with diesel powerplants.

The regular and crew-cab trucks are powered by a newly developed 2.2-liter inline-four that is expected to deliver up to 30 miles per gallon along with a 2,600-pound payload and 5,000-pound tow rating. Mahindra had help from suppliers such as Bosch in developing an engine that meets the tough U.S. emissions requirements through the use of high-pressure common-rail fuel injection and a urea injection after-treatment system.

All is not settled, though. Before the TR20 and TR40 can go on sale, Mahindra will have to reach some sort of legal agreement with its intended distributor, Global Vehicles USA.
