However, due to the recent natural calamity in Thailand, these plans were altered. HM had recently launched the commercial pickup variant of the Ambassador- the Veer.
Manoj Jha, the managing director of Hindustan Motors said, "One of our passenger carrier variants is expected to get approval from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) soon. Other commercial variants built on the Ambassador platform are also in the pipeline. The rescheduled launch of Pajero and HM stable vehicles will start from the first quarter of the coming year (2012)."
