Mahindra Roxor caught testing in India

The Roxor is an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) that was developed for the US market.

The Mahindra Roxor has been spotted in India for the first time, which suggests that the carmaker could be planning to introduce it in the domestic market.

The Roxor was developed by Mahindra Automotive North America (MANA) specifically for the US market. However, the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) project soon ran into legal troubles due to its Jeep CJ-inspired design.

Mahindra was forced to redesign the Roxor after it lost the intellectual property suit filed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). Now, the vehicle spotted in India is the new Roxor with the updated front fascia.

The Roxor is powered by a 2.5-litre, m2DiCR turbocharged diesel engine that produces 61 BHP @ 3,200 rpm and 195 Nm of torque @ 1,400-2,200 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and has 4WD with a 2-speed transfer case.
