DC2 e Amby India Launch Details Revealed: 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 after the COVID-19 lockdown is lifted in the country.

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.”

One of the oldest custom automobile designers in India, the DC Design has re-entered into the Indian market with a new brand name – DC2. The design house registered under Dilip Chhabria has recently revealed few images of a new concept car that is based on the very-famous Hindustan Ambassador. The images of the Ambassador EV concept by DC2 are bound to get major attention from the audience.

The digital rendering of the e-Amby by DC2 is a combination of all the premium retro and modern bits that sets it apart from the other customizations done by the design house. The compact-sedan has been imparted a futuristic stance while the overall glossy black colour scheme adds to its exclusivity.

Hindustan Ambassador is one of the first India-made cars that features a rear-wheel-drive system. DC2 has offered the sedan with a large grille at the front mated to LED headlights while the overall front fascia has been imparted a premium look with the proper use of chrome finishing on the front grille.

The multi-spoke alloy wheels further enhance the overall unique beauty of the Ambassador EV while the addition of chrome detailing on the doors and the edges further adds to the charm.

The customizers at DC2 have offered the e-Amby compact sedan a two-door outlook in the digital rendering but if the brand plans on revealing the production variant anytime soon, one can expect it to feature a standard four-door profile.

The brand has not yet revealed the powertrain offered to the compact-sedan though considering it’s a modern-day EV, the customers can expect a powerful motor and a decent electric range. The elegant styling of the sedan makes it worthy of all the attention.

As of now, the DC2 design team has only revealed the concept model and they don’t have a plan on rolling out the production variant without much demand from the customers in the Indian markets.

Hindustan Motors  Sells Ambassador brand to Peugeot-Citroën for INR 80 crores

The same iconic car once featured in one of the Peugeot advertisement few year back where a man was seen remodeling the Ambassador into Peugeot 206. The car was brought into India by the Birla group in 1957 and was based on Morris Oxford 3 model. It saw a large number of changes in its lifetime and was one of the popular option among politicians and taxi-drivers. Even after these changes, it looked very different from the modern cars.

The last Ambassador was built in 2014 at West Bengal plant and the production was suspended due to lack of sales from last decade. PSA group has partnered with the Birla group for manufacturing and distributing the power-trains as well as vehicles in India. They have their headquarters in Tamil Nadu. Peugeot is working on a strict plan and would launch their first product in India by 2021. They will finalize the partnership strategies by 2018 itself.
