Hindustan Motors to launch upgraded Winner truck in Delhi

June 19th, 2009 - 5:32 pm ICT by IANS  

Kolkata, June 19 (IANS) Automobile manufacturer Hindustan Motors will launch the Bharat Stage Four (BS IV) version of its mini-truck Winner in the national capital shortly, a top company official said here Friday.
“Our immediate priority is to launch the BS IV version of Winner in Delhi in seven to 10 days. After this, it will be launched in Mumbai,” company managing director Ravi Santhanam told reporters on the sidelines of a seminar.

BS IV refers to the latest emission norms set by the Indian government to reduce the harmful effect of automobile fumes.

Hindustan Motors - the flagship company of the C.K. Birla group - unveiled the one-tonne payload capacity Winner in Kolkata last December.

The company sources the knocked-down version of the Winner from Shandong Shifeng of China and assembles it at its plant in Uttarpara near here.

It is also looking at “two new possibilities” in the next one year, Santhanam said, but refused to specify the category. “It does not necessarily have to be a product, it could even be a service offering. But within our automotive domain.”
