    FCA's lawsuit is total nonsense. Not only is the U.S. market Roxor an off-highway vehicle (and as such does not compete with any Jeep vehicles sold by FCA), but Mahindra has held multiple agreements and licenses to use the CJ design since the 1940s; the company most recently executed such an agreement with FCA's predecessor (Chrysler Group LLC) in 2009.

    From The Drive:

    Quote Originally Posted by The Drive
    "Mahindra counters with a claim that Chrysler Group, as it was briefly known after Daimler Chrysler split and before Fiat acquired it, specifically agreed in 2009 not to bring such claims against Mahindra if it used a grill that Chrysler had approved. The Roxor's grill is one that was approved at that time. Furthermore, Mahindra claims that FCA is using this case "to harm our Roxor business by creating negative publicity, damaging our reputation and our stature in the marketplace," according to a statement.

    "The relationship began in the 1940s with the original agreement with Willys and continues to this day, with the most recent agreement executed with FCA (then Chrysler Group LLC) in 2009," Mahindra told The Drive in a statement. "Our actions, products and product distribution (including Roxor) both honor the legacy of the relationship and the terms of our agreements with FCA. Mahindra has been co-existing with FCA (and the Jeep brand) for over 25 years in India and in many other countries."

    In other words, Mahindra had an agreement with Willys, the company that originally invented the Jeep as we know it, and that agreement has remained in effect through all of the acquisitions and ownership changes of the Jeep brand.

    Mahindra is lazy, seriously, can they not just design something of their own irrespective of whatever?

    I'd rather have a copy of a Land Rover Series 1 or 2. That would be really cool.
    1968 Buick Skylark (Buick 350/4)
    1972 Chevrolet Corvette (350 LT-1)
    2001 Chevrolet Tahoe LS (5.3 liter)
    1983 Chevrolet C/10 Silverado (350 Goodwrench)

    Former: 1989 GMC Suburban R1500 (5.7 liter)
    1969 Buick Skylark Custom (Buick 350/2)
    1971 Buick Riviera (Buick 455)
    1971 Buick Electra 225 (Buick 455)

    Without Buick, GM never would have existed.

    You don't like the idea of licence-build arrangements? It's how GM is making money out of China.

    Mahindra has had a license to build Jeep (not named Jeeps obviously) for damn near ever. It's unfortunate that these are not roadworthy as it'd be nice to have something Jeep-like, but far more affordable. Not everyone wants to spend $40K+ and then take their new toy off road and beat the hell out of it. I'd see more like those 3-wheeled Polaris Slingshot sports car/motorcycle/snowmobile mashups that give great performance without costing a fortune, kind of a Suzuki Jimmy, but for American sized asses!
