  • Thank you PTI for this innovation without all of your dharnas they never would have invest in to Pakistan.

  • Why do they need a second plant when they continue manufacturing the same model for more than 20 years. They purchase depleted plants from around the world like Cultus, Wagon R, Liana etc.

  • As long as they don’t revamp the models, this investment doesn’t mean anything apart from making Pakistan a bigger dumping ground for obsolete spares and models.

  • 460 million dollars is peanuts compared to the billions of dollars they have made from the Pakistani people selling “tin dubbaz”.

  • It is predicted that the new plant will fill up the roads and streets with Bolan. It looks like this dabba will have a penetration ratio of 2:1 (2 bolans per person) considering its rising demand between the people of Pakistan. May Allah bless us..!

  • i read on pro pakistani a little while earlier when the auto policy was put into play, suzuki made threats that they would move their operations to Iran if Pakistan didnt amend the auto policy !!

  • Ya Allah Pak Suzuki Motors ko Mout dey day, in say humari jaan chura aur safety features wali companies ko pakistan main interested kerwa, Ameen
