Hindustan Motors, India’s one of the older car makers, is ready to launch its new model in India. Hindustan Motors is a planning to launch a new car model in India in alliance with Mitsubishi Motors. It had earlier planned to launch the mode in October during the festive season. However, owing to the decline in demand and glum market conditions, it had delayed the launch of its new car.

Hindustan Motors is ready to launch its new model nearly 20 years after it had launched Contessa and Ambassador in India. The model is built on a new platform that has been developed by the company on its own. According to

Santhanam, Managing Director of Hindustan Motors, the company has taken some technical inputs from other but the new model has been designed entirely on their own. The company is testing the model extensively at its Uttarpara factory.

Hindustan Motors has one of the oldest models in its product portfolio, the Ambassador. The car still marks its small presence on the Indian roads but in last few months the company witnessed a decline in its sales as well. It plans to launch LPG and CNG versions of the Ambassador next year. It also plans to launch Mitsubishi Outlander shortly.
