Jeep and Mahindra Go at It in Court Over the Wrangler—Again | MotorBiscuit

While it’s not necessarily a great hybrid, the Jeep Wrangler is undoubtedly an iconic off-road SUV.

However, there’s a fine line between ‘inspiration’ and ‘plagiarism.’ And according to a recent Jeep court filing, the Mahindra Thar is guilty of the latter.

Mahindra’s and Jeep’s relationship has been, to put it mildly, a bit rocky as of late. Mahindra, much like Mitsubishi at one point, has been licensed to sell Wrangler and other old-school Jeep clones in India for over 70 years. And this arrangement worked fine until it released the 2018 Roxor UTV.
