We've got a poll on color of the paint (maybe that was at Mahindra Planet, I can't remember), don't we need one for external hooks or no external hooks? The factory is set up to do them, we just need to let the potential buyers' opinion be known before the first truck is shipped. I think that GV is listening, even if they aren't doing much talking.

My vote is to keep the hooks, if we realy want to get rid of something to make all trucks/cars better then I vote get rid of the epa ( Nixon's biggest regret)..

Default Fuel economy in the hook poll

I really like the hooks but I have to wonder how much air drag they cause. Mahindra will need every trick in the book to squeeze 30 mpg highway. Should the poll be, "Do you prefer hooks and 29.5 mpg or internal hooks and 30 mpg?"

Hooks inside and out! It's all about utility after all. The side mirrors and a dirty undercarriage will cause more wind resistance than those hooks ever will...

Centaur, ditto. As soon as mahindra starts making it look like everything else on the road sales will not steadily climb. It's already morphed into the looks of a toyota. KEEP THE HOOKS.

I like the hooks too. They remind of they way Toyotas looked when they were small and utilitarian.

They had me retouch the hooks out of the ads. But if they're listening, reading and conducting the focus groups like any company breaking into a new market they'll make what that market wants to buy. —eventually
