o_m, can't wait to hear. It sure sounds exciting, even though I don't know what it is.

If it will make Arka happy, then I'm sure it's a super offering with the works and desires that most jeepers/offroaders have.

Go on share the sighting, the waits are sure killing.

Yikes!

Dear Behram Sir, has there been any progress on the development of the all new SWB or the CL340 with the new drive line and suspension.

Given that we have very little or no competition in this segment at present, it sure holds a lot of potential and growth (the SWB). Just thinking out of the box, do we think of building an all new hybrid 4X4 or an electric 4X4 on a SWB that could drive around the city as well as tread offroad.

I've heard of electric tractors for farm use, never seen one though and I see the future sure holds a lot of potential for electric and hybrids.

I'm aware that the Scorpio has a concept been built with a hybrid engine.

Just a thought!

Yikes!

I have my own doubts on launch of electric 4X4 or tractor considering we are a power starved nation till 2020.
