You guys simply have to visit the Fuangdong Foday website at | Welcome to FODAY. Its a hoot, totally hilarious, and don't forget to read the "disposing" info about this car, the Foday Explorer III.

This is the Force SUV based on Foday Guangdong Explorer and not the Mahindra SUV. It looks almost the same size of the Endeavour.

Well dome Amitkb, that website is a hoot. So one can literally see the actual car without any camouflage (which now seems pointless), here it is

Well it will be quite interesting if other part time manufacturers start buying the same kits (click here) off these chinese makers and make their own version of what Force claims to be a 'luxury SUV'...lol

Maybe they can ask individuals to buy their own panels and kit it up any way they like, that could be interesting. Hope Force will start putting real effort and make a proper platform and then develop a range of models on them rather than waste money on this venture.

Well if you see both Force (Firodias) and Foday have similarity in their logo and that explains their partnership .

By the way what Force motors is doing is new wine in old bottle, In a sense apart form the structure the running gear is done by them, which I think could be a trump card. From their products I see they have feel of the market but do not have long vision for the same and are thus beated by the two jaint Telco and M&M.

True... even the symbols are the same, another thing that Force doesn't have to make for itself. Why not rename the company foday as well, save them the trouble of getting new badges made.

I know that im being overtly critical but its frustrating to see a company that had a really good head start (50 odd years) in the industry now resorting to such short sighted and quick fix measures.

They need to take more serious measures, source funding and build a platform/model range for the long term. Instead they seem to be happy in making broad statements on their chinese take away.

Wood on the dash is too much and doesn't look very pleasant. The seating arrangement looks promising.

I see this as a LHD vehicle. So, are we getting same [ofcourse RHD ] interiors and rest too?

If so, it does looks promising. TATA & MM will be watching out for this.

Wooden gear nob? That's looking really bad :(

Is it first time that anybody having wooden finished gear nob? I have never seen anywhere like this. I guess Force should do some pleasant changes to appeal indian customers. Indians do love chrome. So why not use that? Too much wooden finish not looking good IMO.
