A lot of you might feel that Ambassador is out and not on sale during the times when we talk of the latest technology and all the gizmos and gadgets. If you are one of them, you are mighty wrong!
Ambassador has always been on sale and in fact, it has been selling better than some pretty well known ‘modern’ cars in the market! Just that, for now, it is sold only in BS3 cities. And now, Hindustan Motors is in a rejig mood and according to Business Standard, has received the BS4 certification for its new engine from ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India).
This means that the company can now sell its Ambassador in the 13 major cities of India which are BS4 compliant only. HM has recently declared that they will be launching a new Ambassador for the Indian market next year which will be fresher, newer and technically modern. And at the same time SRK Designs of Indianautosblog.com has shared this imaginative rendering of the upcoming new HM Ambassador.
Let us iterate that this is more of an imagination and a hope but if (let us say if) Hindustan Motors can pull a design somewhere close to this, will it not be our Indian Beetle? If anyone from the company is reading this, we say please!
Far from this hope cry, Hindustan Motors is also preparing a compact sedan version of Ambassador. Interestingly, test mules have also been caught which just appear to be simple chop-jobs and make the car look disproportionate BIG TIME.
Fortunately though, these were caught a few years back and since the car has not made it to production, we pray HM does a less shoddy work or completely axe this project!
