Default Ambassador CNG..Euro-III and some scoop news

A very interesting thing happening in the Indian

Automotive market.Heard it on news today that Hindustan

Motors have launched a new version of their old and trusted

workhorse the Ambassador..It is a CNG euro-III version with

A/C,MP3 music system,Mobile charger,Alloy wheels and plush

interiors.Its also been heard that HM is having talks with

Peugeot and Volks Wagen for their different engine options

for its line up..

Its really good to know that HM is trying hard to

keep the Ambassador alive.They are also trying hard to keep

its memories alive with the Indians.They want to position it

amongst the base luxury segment.Hats off to them..Really

looking forward to see this car on the indian roads till i am

I rather feel that still working in the Amby project is talking HM nowhere.So why ??
Also , Amby is no longer the official car of our Babus.
It did be better if the Amby stays in the ppl's memories. No offence Rudra and party.

Well, think of it from HM's point of view. As long as people are buying their cash cow, whats the harm in selling it! Hell, the Ambassador sells more than the Mitsubishi Lancer. Ditto with our angst toward Marutis outdated 800, Zen, Omni and Esteem. Have you seen their sales figures of late? These cars are most profitable for the manufacturers as the manufacturing equipment has long depreciated to nil, and the components are 100% localised.

IMHO, the buying customer shares equal blame as the manufacturers for the outdated cars that still sell.

i completely agree with you@ GTO

and btw some people were again at spreading rumours as to 800 is being removed from the maruti line up...but that substantial ( for a 200k car...its substantial..) price cut of 16 k shows that maruti is now preparing to change the market for 800....aiming on the two wheeler owning people who want a set of four wheels...

i dont think amby and 800 are going to be phased out in the next 2 yrs ( atleast!!)...and omni still sells well...zen' sales have increased with that ( rather cheap) makeover....

and i am not averse to the idea of a new amby...its hell safe, fast ( yes...new abys are real fast...) and provides some back seat comfort......and can look good....( black with extra polish ...) unlike the maruti lineup of cars...
