Here Are the New Cars You Can Expect on Pakistani Roads in 2018

2018 is going to be exciting for Pakistan’s auto industry as many foreign investors and car makers have vowed to bring their top of the line vehicles to the local market. Pakistan revised its auto-policy back in 2016, which has attracted attention from some of the biggest names in the automobile world.

Many companies have already confirmed their plans for investing in Pakistan in the coming year, while others are in the process of acquiring the necessary approvals and local support.

Let’s take a look at what’s in the bag.

Renault

The first name that comes to mind is Renault. The French auto-manufacturing company, partnering with Al-Futtaim, formally announced to establish its assembly line in Pakistan in 2018. The vehicle we are expecting Renault to launch in Pakistan is the SUV “Duster”.

      Do you understand what the blog post is about? I see your meaningless comments on every post here distracting readers from engaging into something thought provoking. Why do you do this? Don’t you have anything important to do in your life?

      If this is something admins is doing, then it’s really a bad strategy to follow as it’s destroying your comments section. Majority of serious readers will just avoid coming down here even if they want to.

              Cool down, I am not here to interfere in your life, of course. You can do whatever you want, but that doesn’t allow you to spam a platform.

              Everybody has some moral values to practice and they should abide by them. If you can’t add value to something then you shouldn’t start making it worse. I hope you understand.

              Take it as a request. I apologize for anything that hurt you but I felt it necessary. That was all I wanted to say, I will no longer interfere in your life :)

        Do you understand yourself what does a blog post mean and spamming? Let me clear it out for you!

        Spamming is sending unsolicited or undesired electronic messages in bulk quantities and secondly a blog post is for public to share their views with each other. So, as per Human Rights Commission of Pakistan: HRCP and foremost our religion every single entity has the right to exercise their voice.

        I also find Mr. Abdul Wahab’s comments out of context or different but still we dont have any right to teach someone what to speak. If you think by just writing four to five lines in English you can prove something wrong as right then you are WRONG. And if you think serious readers won’t come here just because of Wahab’s comments then I think you should go with your title “GET A LIFE”.

        I know you did this all just to get famous like Abdul Wahab but for now live with jealousy and dont even dare to tell readers what to speak and what not. Every reader has its own identity and rights, you are simply no one to blame him until or unless he violates social ethics but so far he didn’t…..

  • Alam

    No polo, eon, kwid, etc. these cars are the basic expectation of a common Pakistani like me. What’s the point of these companies entering Pakistan and catering only to the rich.

    • Saqib

      Exactly!

  • Muhammad Yasir

    Not sure if i missed anything but …

    all i see is DELUXE cars, these are EXPENSIVE cars … ANYTHING after 1.5 million is considered EXPENSIVE ! these are dangling on the periphery of the luxury category, at least by price if not by quality.

    where’s the cheaply priced hatchback or the optimally economical sedan ?

    where are the options which “offer more for less” ?

    more importantly,

    where are the AFFORDABLE automotives ?

    it’s ironic, the Auto Policy 2016 ( or whatever it’s called ) was designed, structured and bought into being for answering the above mentioned questions and NONE of the cars you mention take into account any of them !

    this is not worth it, if all these companies are going to do is to MILK Pakistan for money WITHOUT offering any feasible and most importantly, reachable and affordable alternatives to the public, then i’d rather not see them make an entry at all !

    since they will be doing what the infamous trio of toyota-honda-suzuki have been doing !

    i wrote an equally detailed debate/discussion on a pertinent article on this website a month or two ago, where i outlined that if these newcomers want to achieve ANYTHING in Pakistan, they WILL have to offer something affordable and within the reach of more people.

    something which challenges abominations like the archaic Mehran or the outrageous influx of ‘tin box’ vehicles costing an upwards of 1 million PKR !

    simply put, for the new entrants to gain traction in the local market, they’ll have to offer something that ATLEAST matches the price of Mehran but offers better features, better mileage, better road safety, better economy and so on !

    if it’s cheaper than mehran, than all the more ASTRONOMICAL advantage to them !

    we need an influx of new cars in the BUDGET CATEGORY(which is absent in the country as of this moment) of Passenger Vehicles !

    P.S : for the imbeciles, i’ll clear up the confusion as follows;

    750,000 PKR is NOT a budget price, it’s LOWER MID RANGE. correct your jumpy stance on that !

  • HussamX1

    No one is taking about Market mafia as known as dealers. honestly i didn’t expect too much. If these giants came to Pakistan and build their industry and manufacture cars here in Pakistan then there is hope for Pakistani people to Buy these car, suvs even carriers

  • Naveed Anjum Ch

    All Cars prices are above one million .Normal middle class needs a reasonable car with latest features in reason able price less then one million .In this scenario these brands break monopoly of OLD Japanese companies.Otherwise they are all flop in the market.
    Because they already sell all theses brands in INDIA on cheapest prices. But when they will enter in Pakistani Market they will raise their prices.WHY .????
