A rhino rover is gathering dust in the ARAI lot since a looong time. I guess everyone has given up on it.

I read the report it doesnt mention about the rover engine, if they launch rhino with rover engine it will be a huge success. Another good thing is that it wont be licensed production like maruti do with fiat engines as rover is no more. The sole owner will be icml.

I feel they have some big time issues that they are still fighting to resolve else they would have started selling them by now.
thats unfortunate.

is it a case of trying too much too soon ??? without the requisite infrastructure perhaps ??

Saw one on the inner ring road off Indiranagar Domlur in Bangalore. Thought it was a qualis first but the headlights looked different so had a second look. Sorry could not get any pics.

Its in two of our local newspapers too, its supposed to be 100 BHP (pretty decent compared to the old qualis & the Tavera), the newspaper also mentions 0 to 100 in 16 secs.

This is not Rhino, this is the Chevy Spark (checkered car) for 3 reason one its the back is of Chevy(check GM site) and 2nd Rhino is manufactured in HP so it will have an HP number whereas GM has a plant in gujarat so a GJ number and third the jpg file itself is named "sparkrear.jpg".

This is the Rhino, ughhhh!
