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]
