25Would-be U.S. Mahindra dealers file suit

44Mahindra's U.S. plans on indefinite hold, Alabama plant denied

Fans of small, fuel-efficient pickup trucks: We hate to tell you this, but it's becoming increasingly clear that Mahindra's long-awaited entry into the United States market just isn't going to happen anytime soon.

Beyond that, details on the new SUV are scarce.
