International Cars and Motors Limited also known as ICML, was started by the Sonalika Group. The Sonalika Group is a tractor manufacturer that was incorporated in1969. Today the group is among the top three tractor manufacturers of India and provides a complete product line including tractors, multi-utility vehicles, engines, farm machinery attachments, diesel gensets, auto components and pick & carry cranes.
The company started manufacturing SUVs in 2006 and hence established and created ICML and is based in Himachal Pradesh. The company has many technical agreements with foreign players such as MG Rover for manufacturing engines and components.
Their first car was the Rhino and it used as diesel engine as do all the other models now. However due to their relatively small scale production the company does not have a vast dealer network and availability of parts and servicing can sometimes be a problem. The models are aimed at the rural market and therefore are priced cheaply and usually feature poor quality durable materials.
