HM Veer

Hindustan Motors has launched Veer in East India. The Veer is a 0.8-tonne (800 kg) small commercial vehicle and will be launched across India by the end of this financial year. The Veer is built on the Ambassador platform with changes being done to the transmission and suspension systems required for a load carrier. The vehicle is available in both diesel (BS III) and CNG (BS IV) versions and in two models – Veer and Veer LX. While Veer has a separate load tray, Veer LX’s load tray is integrated with the front cabin. The three-seat bench provided in the front cabin offers comfort to the passengers and the vehicle is also available as a drive-away chassis (DAC) with front cabin. The Veer is available in marshall cream and stack brown colours initially. The Veer diesel is offered at an inaugural price (for the month of August 2011) of Rs. 3.30 lakh (ex-showroom Kolkata).

“We have honoured our commitment by launching Veer. More new vehicles will follow suit. These will come both from our Uttarpara plant in West Bengal, where we manufacture the iconic Ambassador and other vehicles, and our Chennai facility where we build the Mitsubishi range of vehicles. Our bouquet of offerings is set to expand at a fast pace due to our reinforced emphasis on new product development,” Mr. Manoj Jha, MD, Hindustan Motors, said.
