Hindustan Motors to launch small car by July 2011

     India’s oldest automobile manufacturer Hindustan Motors will launch a new small car in Indian market by July this year. The new small car will be built on the same old Ambassador platform and will be available in both hatchback and sedan version. This will the first hatchback vehicle form the manufacturer in it history of over 60 years.

     The hatchback will be smaller than the Ambassador and hence would come under 4 meter length mark to avail excise duty. The new car will be manufactured at HM’s plant at Uttarpara in West Bengal. This seams to be a final attempt by the CK Birla group to come back in the Indian automobile industry.

     It was roumered for a while that HM will join hands with Proton of Malyasia to manufature and sell the latter's cars - Savvy and Saga. But now HM has decided to go on its own and make its own car for Indian market.
