The company said that Mahindra Automotive North America or MANA, is currently evaluating options for making the organisation leaner and optimising performance and productivity.

Earlier reports suggested that the cuts were as high as two-thirds of the total staffing. Now, Mahindra is reportedly reviewing its businesses in a drive to conserve capital and retain only those that make money or have the potential to be profitable. In fact, in the company's statement, the Mahindra spokesperson said, "At Mahindra Automotive North America, we chose not to bid for the USPS Next Generation Delivery Vehicle program and some of the non-core work has also been de-prioritized."

Mahindra has also been in a long legal battle with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), following the latter's claim that the Roxor off-road SUV violates the "trade dress" of FCA's Jeep Wrangler SUV. However, since then Mahindra has made several changes to the design of its vehicle, and in December 2020, a U.S. regulator ruled that Mahindra's new design for the Roxor does not infringe the intellectual property rights of FCA's Jeep brand. So, given the fact that the company is now allowed to sell the Roxor in the United States, MANA is shifting its focus towards the launch of the 2021 model.
