The automobile industry has changed a lot, especially in the past few years. The car which used to drive Indian politicians around, Hindustan Motors Ambassador, is no longer in production. Most of the politicians have switched to more swanky and modern SUVs, sports car, or the luxury sedans.
Let’s see 10 of the premium luxury rides our politicians drive with.
