Parm, there seem to be two different vehicles in those pics. In the second pic (The one with the pinkish van in it) the vehicle has hubs on the two visible wheels while in the Axe pics the wheels have no hubs (I thikn they're called Freewheeling hubs). Apart from that the windscreen & bonnet are differnet too.

In fact, if you look at the picture below that one, the Axe is standing behind that vehicle & looks to be totally different to the Axe.

Here's a full report (source: [Mahindra’s AXE The New Army Vehicle “Desi Hummer”).
The article in this link is from Sept 2007. Was there any updates from Mahindra recently for us to get excited?

Noticed that the hard top version has doors from the Bolero. But overall, I like it and I hope they do launch a civilian version.
