Here's the budget Jeep Wrangler knockoff Mahindra built

  Here's the budget Jeep Wrangler knockoff Mahindra built It's called the Thar, and yeah, it totally looks like a Wrangler.Mahindra revealed the Thar over the weekend and said the new SUV is even more capable than the model it replaces. As much as the SUV looks like a Wrangler on the outside, it definitely doesn't have the same appeal inside; it's clear this is a very budget SUV at the end of the day.

Before the peak meeting on climate protection goals for the commercial vehicle industry, Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) renewed his demand for a scrapping bonus for older trucks - even if this would go towards the purchase of new combustion engines.

As long as there are no large trucks suitable for the mass market with batteries or fuel cell drives, a bridge is needed. "Because we also have the latest technology in the combustion engine, which means an absolute improvement," said Scheuer on Wednesday to the radio station Bayern 2. "We have to convert the sector and we need the change." Synthetic fuels should not be forgotten either.

We received the opportunity to test a 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali equipped with the CarbonPro bed and MultiPro tailgate, and were very impressed with the truck overall.

Scheuer will speak to representatives from the automotive, logistics and energy industries on Wednesday afternoon. As with passenger cars, limit values ​​will also apply to commercial vehicle emissions in the EU.

Scheuer's proposal is controversial in the federal government. "I'm initially skeptical before I don't know the concept," said Environment Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) to the broadcaster. "As long as I don't know exactly how it works, I won't just say yes here." Politicians have deliberately not initiated a scrapping premium for cars. It is important to her that CO2-neutral truck models hit the streets as quickly as possible, said Schulze. It is not just about the drive technology, but also about more intelligent traffic concepts.

The environmental protection organization Nabu does not share Scheuerer's point of view either. "Technical alternatives such as the battery-electric drive in particular, but also the hydrogen fuel cell as well as the overhead line truck are available and must come onto the market in relevant quantities promptly," said Federal Managing Director Leif Miller. This requires the appropriate charging infrastructure and improved framework conditions.
