Hindustan Motors launched Ambassador in India in 1957. Based on Morris Oxford model, the four-door sedan is perfectly suitable for the harsh Indian roads.

The car is primarily used by the politicians in India. Hindustan Motors currently manufactures Ambassador in its Uttarpara facility near Kolkata, West Bengal.
