New Delhi, Oct 3 (UNI) Hindustan Motors today said it has received a significant contract from the Centre after four years to supply its iconic 'Ambassador' to the government.
''...after a gap of four years, we have again received order for The Ambassador from the Government of India... for the time being, we cannot divulge any details,'' company Chairman C K Birla told reporters here.
The automobile, based on the UK's Morris Oxford model, is manufactured at the company's Uttarpara plant near Kolkata in West Bengal, having an installed capacity of 24,000 units.
The car was once one of the most popular cars in the country as it was perceived to be best suited to the harsh Indian terrain.
Also, it was the preferred mean of conveyance of India's political leadership, before they moved on to other luxury cars and SUVs.
