So today we're going to look upon a vehicle that dominated all other vehicles of India for almost 30 long years.
Apart from the mechanical and economical points of view, this car is bound in the emotions of many. Many siblings have fought to win the front seats of the car before they started a family trip while many businessmen reached their destinations only because of this Hindustan Ambassador.
About 62 years ago, it was 1956 when the popular company Hindustan Motors had successfully acquired the license from British Motors Corporation to design two vehicles - Morris Oxford series 1 and 2.
Hindustan Motors, a part of Aditya Birla Group was established in 1942 by B.M. Birla. The competitors of Hindustan Ambassador during that time were Premier Padmini and Standard 10.
For years, this car maintained its popularity in the whole country. However, it began to lose the popularity once Maruti Suzuki emerged with its car Maruti 800 in 1983.
Gradually in 2014, the production was stopped due to financial issues. Finally in 1 Feb 2017, the vehicle was sold out to a foreign company by 80 crores.
