Pak Suzuki has officially discontinued the popular Mehran in the country. A circular has been issued in this regard.
The notification, widely circulating on social media, states:
Keeping in view discontinuation of Suzuki Mehran production, Pak Suzuki is constrained to stop the booking of Suzuki Mehran (all versions) with the immediate effect, i.e., April 01, 2019.
The company has asked its dealers to stop taking further bookings for the iconic hatchback vehicle.
The circular further said that the company will serve all pending orders received before April 4, as per commitment.
As soon as Suzuki announced to halt production of Mehran, other economic automakers are ready to fill the void in entry-level market.
Not long ago, United Bravo made a debut which couldn’t make much of a difference given that Mehran was still there for its due share.
And now, Regal Automobiles and DFSK Group of China’s joint venture – Prince – is launching ‘Pearl’ in May which is expected to take the Pakistani market by storm.
Suzuki also plans to compensate for its Mehran sales with the upcoming locally assembled Alto. Nissan is also working on the Datsun Go which should be another entry-level car for the Pakistani auto buyers.
