I think HM has exited the car market completely.

This thing ie "Winner" doesnt look bad at all, it looks bigger, taller and better than the ACE. If priced right might be able to bring in some mollah for HM

KOLKATA:

“By March 2009, we hope to introduce two more variants of the Winner, including the CNG model. In the ancillaries business (forgings, castings and stamping), we have already begun supplying to commercial, utility and tractor manufacturers,” Mr Santhanam added.

Ruling out any foray into the passenger car segment under the HM banner, he said: “The company would remain focused on the existing line (Ambassador), ancillaries and commercial mini-trucks with the Chinese partner.

The Winner looks bigger than the Ace. The Hindu mentioned the launch yesterday but didnt give out any details regarding pricing or specifications.

Also, they have huge potential in crew cab (twin-cab) segment where only Bolero Camper and Tata 207 DI are present.

I read somewhere that the Winner is priced between 3 to 4L. It is powered by an 1.5L diesel if my memory serves me correct.
