Introduction
HINDUSTAN MOTORS
Car Pioneers - West Bengal in1942 by Mr B. M. Birla
AMBASSADOR
Ambassador was a leader in car sales in production
since 1958
Morris OxfordIII model, 1st made atCrowley, Oxfordin
the United Kingdom from 1956 to 1959.
Ambassador was considered as a ultimate Indian car
and was fondly called "The king of Indian roads
The only automobile to ply Indian roads for more than
five decades

A solid and suited car for Indian roads with a powerful


engine, spacious interiors and an imperial quality
Ambassador was the first diesel car in India with1489cc
Jawaharlal Nehru was given the first model of the
Mark II in 1963
Ambassador was embraced by the politicians and
officials, a trend which continues till date because of
the feeling associated with the name even when much
better and affordable alternatives are available

Down-Fall of Ambassador Brands


Traditional Management Style- Reluctant to changes
Ignorance of consumers needs- Comfort & technology
No investment in marketing and promotions
Disregard towards competition
Tried capturing globally though resulted in failure!
