Default HM launching hatchback/sedan in July?

Was browsing through ET when i came across this news.

Hindustan Motors gearing up for small car launch in July - The Economic Times

Was surprised.

This leaves more questions than answers. I am not sure if this is in technical collaboration with Mitsubushi. However its hasnt been even rumoured and suddenly we are facing a lauch?.

Any more light on this.

As I went through the link, it's mentioned that the car is based on the Ambassador platform. I guess the model in question is the new shortened version of the Ambassador (CS) spied and posted recently in Team Bhp. Since the length is less than the original Ambassador, it could classify for the Indian Small Car norms and hence priced cheaper.

When and how will HM be taught a lesson and come out of the time warp that its stuck in?

Time for the baby Ambassador once again?
I remember the Baby Amby being sold way back then with some differences in the opening size of the trunk etc.
Anyone to shed light on this?
