      Bit confusing. Are they releasing this only in Karnataka alone?

      O.T : Why does Mahindra vehicle names always end with 'o'? Can anyone answer this million dollar question?

      I like the exterior and interior both. My only point is - after making such a nice MUV why does the truck-part (the one that will eventually carry the load) have to look like a cheap aftermarket one? Why can't they make one in the factory which blends in with the vehicle with some curves. Like those pick-ups from Chevy, Ford, etc in the US?

      I hope they name W201 as 'Mogambo'. Should sell in millions.
