In a stock exchange filing on Tuesday, Hindustan Motors, the erstwhile makers of the iconic Ambassador car, said it has entered into an MoU to extend the EV domain across the border to enhance the production of ecofriendly electric vehicles. The company, however, did not divulge details of the MoU. On Wednesday, shares of the automaker climbed 9.85% at Rs 18.40. The shares closed at the upper circuit limit.
