In 2017, French car manufacturer Peugeot had purchased Ambassador brand and it is expected that Peugeot will re-introducing Ambassador in an all-new avatar in the Indian market. Here we have a video that has created a render based on the Ambassador that we used have on sale here in India. The video shows how the next-generation Hindustan Ambassador could look like.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their youtube channel. The design of the next-gen Ambassador in artists imagination looks very modern but has elements that are carried forward from the last gen. The silhouette of the next-gen Ambassador is very similar to the older generation one. The bonnet of the next-generation Ambassador gets a smooth curve at the front and looks as long as that of the older versions. The bumper gets black inserts and the headlamp now gets an oval shape with projector type headlamps with LED DRls instead of conventional round headlamps.
The side profile of the car looks slightly longer than the older version and the bulky and curvy character lines above the wheel arches make it look like a huge vehicle. The wheel arches retain the boxy shape with multi spoke alloy wheels. Coming to the rear, the C pillar is more sloping than before and the boot of the next-gen ambassador now looks more bulky than before. The tail light of the new Ambassador has been redesigned and it now gets an all-LED tail light unit with a redesigned bumper with reflectors integrated in it.
The Hindustan Ambassador was a car that has always remained very close to our hearts. It is one those cars that was there when the automotive era in our country started. It was the choice of car for politicians, families and even the commercial segment had these in their fleet. The Hindustan Ambassador was based on Morris Oxford Series III model, which was manufactured by Morris Motors Limited at Cowley, Oxford in the United Kingdom. Production of HM Ambassador had started in 1958 and had stopped in 2014 when finally the manufacturer had shut the plant.
PSA group who has bought Ambassador has not revealed anything about the design or the launch of the vehicle. The render in the video is totally artist’s imagination and it looks good. We expect Peugeot to reveal their plans about resurrecting the Ambassador brand in India sometime later this year, during the launch of the C5 AirCross.
