The British panel for arbitration wants to avoid the presence of Mahindra vehicles in the States. Mahindra’s small diesel pickup truck seemed to be unfavorable for the British arbitration panel. Moreover, according to Pickuptrucks.com, the British panel seemed to be in favor for ruling the Indian automaker over the Global Vehicles’ lawsuit in contrary to the said company due to the reason that the contract of both parties are already ended or expired. In the same token, Mahindra was safe from violating any of U.S laws because they are found that they have not done any of the accusations.
As we remembered, the ruling was done six years ago, the time that the companies released the statement that Global Vehicles will be distributing Mahindra T20 as well as the T40 diesel powered pickups in U.S.
In 2012 when the deal began, it was clear and settled with Mahindra stating Global Vehicles permitted to the expiration of contract. The Global Vehicles put the blame back to its former Indian partner. It is believed that it has been that long ago when the American company requested for arbitration.
All the expenses to be paid for court costs were shouldered by Global Vehicles as ordered.
On the other hand, there was another issue relating to this when a group of Mahindra dealers filed a case in U.S District Court against the Indian company. However, the suit was casted off after the judge recognized that the Global Vehicles was not the liable agent to represent Mahindra in U.S.
