You know the old saying…if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The cabbies in India proudly embrace this motto as evidenced by their taxi of choice for the last half century. The Hindistan Ambassador, lovingly referred to as “The King of Indian Roads” by locals, is essentially a copy of a late 50s Morris Oxford III that has been produced by Hindustan Motors since 1958. Head to their website for tech specs and you’ll find innovations like drum brakes and a 38HP diesel motor. Jokes aside though, they actually do have a wide range of engines including a natural gas option. Think of it as old tech with a new theme.
Pictured above and below, the handsome Ambassador doing what is does best…schlepping people around.
