Mahindra Mulling Purchase Of U.S. Assembly Facility

August 28, 2009

There's been much discussion about Indian manufacturer Mahindra and its plans to launch vehicles in the U.S. next year. Of particular interest to those in the industry: how and where Mahindra trucks (and later, SUVs) will be built. Pravin Shah, the company's executive vice president of international operations, has now indicated that Mahindra is exploring the purchase of a U.S. assembly facility, which would save the company sizable import penalties. Given the fragile auto market, it's not a bad idea -- and we think we know where they can get one cheap. [AutoNews, sub req'd]
