My first ride in a proper Jeep was in the back of a Mahindra CJ3. :D

Mahindra was one of the earliest—1947, remember—Jeep licensee, and has had agreements with every one of the many companies that have been stewards of the Jeep brand over history: Willys, Kaiser, American Motors, Renault, Chrysler, Daimler, the Cerberus group, and now Fiat. That’s insane.

It also means that technically, Mahindra has had the rights to the Jeep design for decades longer than the current owner, Fiat Chrysler, has.

This looks very cool. Top speed is only 45mph though.

They still sell 'em new in Europe. I think they are cheaper than the Fiat Panda even.
