If the production of these vehicles actually becomes a reality in this Country, hopefully these vehicles will differ from the "Tata Nano" - the World's Cheapest Car. Although the Tata Nano was not made by Mahindra, I am just posting my concerns that hopefully the engineering and manufacturing departments will remain building a viable and dependable product. Most times when building a new product in a new market, the concept involves using cheaper steel, materials and parts, thus increasing the chance of producing a less dependable product.
Any manufacturer that hits the market with a mini diesel in a small pick up will score. Jeep make a huger error by putting a diesel in a mini Jeep when they should have dome a full size wrangler diesel.
GM blew it when they didn't put a diesel in their Tahoe's for better mileage. A suburban with a diesel would be amazing.
Ford blew it when they put a diesel in a Behemoth called the excursion. Great idea for a diesel in a SUV but just the wrong vehicle. Soccer Moms thought they were driving the titanic.
I bought a diesel VW bug and it gets 40mpg and will out run anything on the freeway. VW gets it.
Real simple, a great diesel engine that produces great mileage, in small to mid size vehicles.
