Apparently after WW2 a company named Mahindra (their only real product on the US market before now was tractors.) Bought the rights to produce the CJ series internationally. From what I understand the agreement did not include an expiration for their license, and upon closer inspection recently did not prevent them from selling in America.
Enter the ROXOR. It is almost identical to a CJ7 in size. It comes with a turbo diesel engine and 5 speed stick. Hey have said they will have a ton of color combinations, options for factory winch bumper and warn winch, options for lights bars, soft tops, possibility of hard tops in the future, different seat options, different roll cage options, a do shield option, and even the ability to order one that looks like a WW2 military jeep.
Now the bad. Due to modern safety regulations it cannot be sold as a car. So they are selling it as a side by side. However depending on the state you live in it can be easily register for street use. For example in new Mexico you just have to buy specials tags, and can drive an ohv anywhere other than a highway. Or in Arizona you just have to have a windshield, turn signals, headlights, and a horn, and you an tag a side by side as a car for street use.
Should be interesting to see how it goes once they are released.
Pricing is gonna start at 15K but when you look at the cost of a new side by side or a CJ7 in decent shape it’s really not that bad
