There is probably only a small section of people who might have never heard about the Hindustan Ambassador. The Ambassador needs no introduction, it is the first made-in-India car. After serving for decades, the Ambassador sedan was discontinued after failing to keep up with the new regulations and emission norms. Well, what if the Ambassador car makes a comeback today? Here are a few rendered images that indicate what a modern-day Ambassador may look like.
PSA Peugeot Citroen
There was a significant surprise and outrage when the news of PSA Peugeot Citroen acquired the Ambassador brand in 2017 for a whopping sum of Rs. 80 crores. This news definitely spirals our mind of how Citroen will rebrand the Ambassador to fit the design and feature needs of today’s times. We feel this sedan would fit the bill perfectly. Following the trend of the newer Minis and the Fiat 500 in Europe, PSA would try to match up by presenting the modern Ambassador, which will have the original virtue of space and comfort and at the same time also captures the essence of the legacy it has, especially in the Indian market.
Hindustan Motors – Beetle inspired
Who better to understand how the Ambassador can be rendered in the modern-day, than Hindustan Motors themselves. The picture below shows the rendered design to have a modern grille and LED lamps. The alloy wheels look stunning too. It also appears to be a longer version of the Volkswagen Beetle.

DC2 which was formerly known as DC has confirmed that they’ve got the necessary go-ahead to launch a fully electric version of the Ambassador sedan which will be called e-Amby. In the past, they have presented us with the Phoenix concept which was based on Ambassador 1800 ISZ. The rendered image shows the e-Amby with rounded edges, bonnet bulges and other original character lines.
The low-slung look integrated with the original Ambassador design just steals your heart away. The roadster version of the Ambassador gets the typical design features such as the metal bumper, chrome-ringed circular headlamps, and sculpted bonnet. The metal tires stand out because of the old school metal shine and add a distinctive touch to this version of the Ambassador.
Gull Wing Ambassador
Cartoq’s rendering artist Vipin Vathoopan has rendered this beautiful Ambassador, which hopefully will open our minds to the possible designs on our beloved Amby. This one is inspired by the iconic Mercedes Benz 300 SL roadster. The car has been lowered to give it a sporty look while the wheels are now larger. The tyres wrap around the deep dish, inset steel wheels and chrome dominates both the front end and sides of the car as a proper, retro touch.
Electric Hindustan Ambassador
This rendered version is created by Vishal Verma. The conventional door of an ambassador is replaced with a set of suicide doors. It gets a spacious cabin with all modern-day features like multiple touchscreens, digital instrument cluster and so on. The car also has captain seats at the rear which are ventilated and will have a massage feature. On the exterior, the design gets LED headlamps and taillights. The doors don’t have handlebars and can be opened using a mobile application or fingerprint.
