Mahindra Roxor reintroduced in North America

Mahindra has reintroduced Roxor side-by-side in the North American market after it discontinued as it faced lawsuits from FCA based on similar designs. The Roxor is essentially based on the old Thar DI. It is classified as an off-road UTV (Utility Task Vehicle) with a 4x4 drivetrain, also referred to as a side-by-side by the North American consumers. The old Thar-based Roxor was first launched in 2018 but was sidelined a couple of years later due to a legal dispute between Mahindra and Jeep.

The new design, especially the front fascia with wider bonnet does away with any possible similarities while staying true to the iconic shape of a do-it-all jee...
