DC2 has revealed digital renderings of a Hindustan Ambassador EV that looks quite futuristic and upmarket
After facing some financial problems last year, DC design is back. It’s the second innings of the car designer in the country, so the brand is now renamed as DC2. DC design was founded by Dilip Chhabria in 1993 and got popular in the Indian market after introducing India’s first sports car named- DC Avanti. As the car designer is back in business, they have revealed images of a fully-electric Ambassador concept which looks quite futuristic and can become a reality if there is sufficient demand for the car in the market. The digitally designed car borrows its design cues from the original Hindustan Ambassador.

At the front, it features a massive grille along with LED headlamps. A lot of chrome has been employed on the front fascia of the car to enhance its premium quotient. As compared to the regular four-door Ambassador, the rendered model only gets two-doors. DC2 can add more doors in the Ambassador EV if they plan to bring the car to our markets.

Moreover, the concept car also features steel rims that make the Ambassador EV look upmarket. Talking about the regular Ambassador, it was the first-ever made-in-India vehicle. The classic sedan is still owned by a lot of celebrities and politicians. The design of the car was inspired by the Morris Oxford Series III, retailed in the European markets. DC2 has not revealed any mechanical details of the Ambassador EV, but we expect it to offer an adequate range for daily commuting.

If launched, one can expect the Ambassador EV to be slightly expensive in our markets because of its futuristic design and an all-electric powertrain. As of now, the most pocket-friendly EV in the Indian market is the Tigor EV, which is priced between Rs 9.54 lakh to Rs 9.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
