DC2 e Amby Launch Details and Key Specifications
DC2 e Amby Launch Details and Key Specifications: According to the latest buzz, the launch timeline of the electric Ambassador variant by the name “DC2 e Amby” that has been recently revealed by Dilip Chhabria is out. In addition to this, the key specifications of the electric car have been revealed by the brand. The reports suggest that DC2 plans to launch the “e Amby” by the end of 2021.
The all-electric Ambassador variant has been designed by DC2, the brand that was formerly known as DC Design. The reports suggest that the “Electric Ambassador” name has been offered to the “e Amby” by the media while the production name of the car is expected to be changed a bit. It is confirmed that the production name will not feature the word “Ambassador” in it due to copyright issues.
The “e Amby” name has been preferred by the brand since it justifies the elite clientele for the car while the distinguished body design has been specifically imparted to the car to set it apart from the regular gasoline-driven cars. The brand currently feels that the “DC2 e Amby” will be the ultimate winner for the brand’s impending success in the Indian market considering the recent attention it is getting as well as its practicality.
Dilip Chhabria has further informed the media that only 5,000 units of the electric car will be developed by the brand which will ultimately help them handle the production budget wisely and keeping the financial risks at bay.
The brand plans on equipping the electric car with four motors mounted on each wheel while the production variant can also feature only two motors, whatever justifies the sales with the audience. The car will be capable of sprinting from 0-60 kmph in just 4 seconds. In terms of dimensions, the “DC2 e Amby” electric sedan measures approximately 170mm more in length and 125mm more in width in comparison to the Hindustan Motors Ambassador.
The brand has only curated 4 prototypes of the electric car, all of which are under development in Switzerland. The brand further wishes to sell the “DC2 e Amby” project to another company or can sell it by itself in the markets depending on what brings them maximum profits. One can expect the production variant of the car to be brought to the Indian shores once the COVID-19 pandemic situation gets under control.
Commenting on the production variant, Dilip Chhabria stated to the press: “We have many options to build the car – either we put it in production ourselves, which most likely is the case as we want to use the infrastructure that we have, or it can be sold as a project. Before the current lockdown, I had received a very serious enquiry from a Chinese company who are world leaders in electric cars.”
