Hindustan Motors to launch BS-IV diesel Ambassador in India soon


India's oldest passenger car, the legendary Ambassador is all set to be launched with BS-IV diesel-powered engine in a few week and will be sold with a new name. Company officials recently invited taxi association officials from around Kolkata to drive the new Ambassador at Hindustan Motor's Uttarpara plant.

HM dealers as also taxi drivers had a feel of the vehicle on HM's purpose-built track. An official from the taxi association was quoted as saying that "the new vehicle offers higher power and torque, better vehicle control with power steering, improved gradient negotiating capacity, better cooling and overall better driveability with no compromise on fuel consumption."

So far, HM had been selling the BS-III diesel and BS-IV petrol variants in tier-II cities, with sales in tier-I cities banned for the BS-3 variants, which severely crippled HM's diesel car sales. Now with the advent of the BS-IV diesel Ambassador, HM will be able to start sales in 17 major Indian cities.

It is expected that the BS-IV variant of the diesel Ambassador will be more powerful and torquier than the BS-III variant. Improved fuel economy will also be on the cards. However, it remains to be seen if HM will be offering any interior changes or will stick to its bare basic cabin formula. The new BS-IV variant will bring along with it minor changes to the looks of the car.
