The 'Amby', as it is fondly called, will be revealed in an all-new avatar, of which the fresh design and new Ambassador engine is being jointly worked upon by French car manufacturer Peugeot in association with Hind Motor Financial Corporation of India (HMFCI).
According to Mr Uttam Bose, director of Hindustan Motors, work is going on in full swing to introduce the ‘new avatar’ Amby.

The latest model of the legendary classic Ambassador car will be manufactured at the Hindustan Motors (HM) factory in Chennai that runs under HMFCI, a partner firm of the CK Birla Group.
Peugeot is very interested in establishing a strong presence in India, and it is one of the earliest car manufacturers to have set foot in the country around the mid-1990s, at a time when India was going through an economic boom and modernization.
The Hindustan Motors factory in Chennai was earlier used to manufacture Mitsubishi cars and the Ambassador cars were produced at the HM factory in Uttarpara. The final Ambassador car to leave from the Uttarpara plant of Hindustan Motors was in September of 2014. By that year, the country's foremost and earliest car manufacturer, Hindustan Motors halted production due to massive debt and no demand. CK Birla Group, the owners of Hindustan Motors sold off the brand to Peugeot for Rs 80 crore in the year 2017.
