In 2004, Indian car manufacturer Mahindra & Mahindra starts talking to U.S. auto dealers to build a group of outlets for its trucks and SUVs. Finally, the company had accumulated $9.5 million in fees from potential dealers eager to sell Mahindra-branded vehicles.
Mahindra assures to have trucks for sale in the U.S. by 2008 and SUVs by 2009. Fast-forward to 2012, and there are still no Mahindra’s for sale in the U.S.
Currently, Miami-based law firm of Diaz Reus & Targ has paced in to characterize dealers in New Hampshire, Florida, California, New Jersey and Washington. "Mahindra told the dealers that its light trucks and SUVs were prepared for delivery to the U.S. market," maintains Diaz Reus in a press release. Any way Mahindra purposely delayed certification of its vehicles after obtaining the dealership fees and deal top secretd, and started pursuing other partners in the U.S. and elsewhere in clear abuse of their promises.
Diaz told that, by their wrong illustrations, the defendants lured the U.S. dealers into producing investments and encouraging Mahindra's brand name. Mahindra is going to learn that annoying to outwit the traders was a grave mistake, as we will forcefully seek honesty for our clients."
