After the introduction of foreign vehicles in the car market in India the fortunes of once robust manufacturing company Hindustan Motors have gone down. However, there is a good news for all the well wishers of ‘HM’; the company has signed a contract with ‘Isuzu Motors’ to assemble two Isuzu models, ‘MU – 7’ (SUV) and ‘D – Max’ (‘pick – up’) in ‘Thiruvallar’ in TN. The manufacturing facility of ‘Isuzu Motors’ is under construction in A.P. and will not be ready for some time.

The Indian wing of ‘Isuzu Motors’ have announced that till their own manufacturing facility in’ Andhra Pradesh’ is ready to go on line they are going to get the parts of both ‘MU – 7’ and ‘D – Max’ from their unit in ‘Thailand’ and asemble them at HM’s factory. They also said that there is a scope of growth of sale for the Sports Utility Vehicles as well as Light Commercial Vehicles in India as they have already introduced these two brands in the Indian car market and the acceptance by the general public is very positive. The company is already selling both brands in two southern cities, ‘Hyderabad’ and ‘Coimbatore’. These brands are imported as Completely Built Units from the manufacturing facility of Isuzu from ‘Thailand’ and sold in the local markets. The company hopes, he went on to say, that with the ‘agreement’ with HM the sale would improve substantially, as the customers need not wait for long period for the delivery of their orders. They are not very worried about the slow down of Indian economy also, as they are definite that the economy is likely to improve in the near future.

The manufacturing facility of Hindustan Motors near Chennai is already assembling ‘SUVs’ for another company, ‘Mitsubishi’ but the senior executive from HM said that they have capacity at the Plant to facilitate Isuzu also and are very happy to use their extra ‘capacity’. The supply of Isuzu vehicles would improve when their own facility in Andhra Pradesh becomes operative.
