MAUMEE, Ohio, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Holding Corporation (NYSE: DAN) announced today that it is expanding its business relationship with Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. by supplying it with efficient, lightweight Spicer ® axles with AdvanTEK ® gears for the company's new platform of sport-utility vehicles and small trucks.

The proven and reliable banjo-style Spicer Model 180 axles are engineered to deliver enhanced efficiency and fuel economy through lower hypoid offsets. Designed with Dana's proprietary assembly technology, Spicer axles with AdvanTEK gearing are rugged and lightweight, offering improved power density and best-in-class noise, vibration, and harshness performance.
