Yup. You read it right. Good ol’ Amby is still selling enough to earn bread and butter for Hindustan Motors and there’s no reason to discontinue this model. Its 1.5 liter diesel version has in fact now received the BS-IV certification that opens up the doors of 17 cities where Ambassador BS-III was not permitted to be sold since April 2010. The car has been equipped with an upgraded engine in order to qualify ARAI’s OBD-II and other related tests as per rule #115 of central motor vehicles rule.
Mr. Uttam Bose said:
“We had been working on upgrading our Ambassador 1.5-litre diesel car to match BS IV norms for over a year. We are happy that our efforts have borne fruit and we have received certification from ARAI after passing rigorous tests. This has demolished the myth that Hindustan Motors cannot upgrade its existing engines. Moreover, this opens hitherto forbidden markets where this vehicle commands enviable loyalty in the taxi segment. We expect our sales to grow significantly within a few months.”
HM Ambassador BS-IV production has commenced and it will start rolling out from Uttarpara plant from next month.

Hindustan Motors releases brochure for BS4 Ambassador

Hindustan Motors has given its longest serving soldier, the Ambassador another chance to go up against its more modern rivals by fitting it with BS4 compatible engines. The car had been discontinued in all the major metros since April 2010 when the BS4 emission norms came in place. Along with the upgraded engines, HM has also included some new features for the interiors.

The entire 1.8-litre range in the Kolkata based manufacturers line up has been made BS4 compatible. It is available with petrol, LPG and a CNG compatible engine. While the petrol version has an output of 73PS and 134Nm of torque, the LPG spec mill produces 67PS and 129Nm of torque and the CNG engine, the lowest of the lot, produces 57PS and 115Nm of torque. This engine is still available in BS3 configuration along with the 1.5-litre diesel and the 2.0-litre diesel. All three BS4 variant have been mated to a five-speed manual.

Some of the newer features being offered with these variants include, (optional) power steering), MP3 compatible music system, mobile phone charger, moulded door pads, beige coloured fabrics with rear arm rest, digital trip metre and a power window (note the singularity in the offering).

HM ISUZU 1.8 L Petrol is a 88 BHP engine used in Contessa classic. It was De-tuned to 73 BHP to make it BS-IV. Well, to make it BS-V ?! This engine is an excellent one, except for Low Mileage!!
On the otherhand, I am wondering how a 1.5L (HM Diesel) could become a BS-IV without a CRDI technology? What about the 2.0L (ISUZU Diesel) ? They better Make 1.5L HM and 2.0L HM ISUZU as CRDI.
Well I don't understand HM's Strategy.
