Hindustan Motors is pulling up its socks and is starting the new-look operation with gusto. The first launch has been conducted today – VEER – the pickup version of the Amby has been announced for the Kolkata market. The vehicle will join other markets in phases.
IAB readers will not be shocked by this development. We were indeed the first automotive blog to discuss the Amby pickup comeback along with a SRK rendering.
Talking about the vehicle, the 800kg payload pickup is available in BS3 (diesel) and BS4 (CNG fuel) versions. The vehicle can also be ordered as a drive-away chassis (DAC).
The diesel model is priced at 3.30 lakh rupees in Kolkata.
The VEER is a spiritual revival of the HM Porter pickup that was sold in the 80′s. It will compete with the likes of the Tata Ace, Mahindra Maxximo and Ashok Leyland Dost.
We wish HM good luck with the Veer and the other immediate launches.
