Pakistan’s automobile industry has seen some positive changes ever since the introduction of the Auto Policy 2016-21. However, the introduction of mid-ranged vehicles in the Pakistani market has been very limited. Until now.
HRL Motors teamed up with Zotye of China to introduce affordable cars in the Pakistani market; the first of which has hit the market and is called the Zotye Z100.
Lets take a look at the newest entrant to the Pakistani auto scene.
The Zotye Z100
The Z100 looks like extremely familiar because Zotye acquired intellectual rights to the 2nd generation of Alto (Chinese Mehran). This in turn has reportedly influenced the overall design of the Z100, which bears some passing similarities to the 7th generation Suzuki Alto.
