After a lot of wait and anticipation, Prince is finally launching its budget hatchback – Pearl – on 19th December. Earlier, the car was expected to hit the market in early November.
The first complete knock-down (CKD) unit is all set to be rolled out at Prince’s manufacturing plant in a much-anticipated launch ceremony later this week on Thursday.
The 4-speed manual transmission hatchback boasts some fascinating features like power steering, power windows, air-conditioning, 5.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with screen mirroring, Bluetooth and SD card connectivity, digital instrument cluster and a lavish wooden trim interior
The entry-level 800cc car is also equipped with security features like passenger and driver-side airbags, however, it’s optional.
According to the company, Prince Pearl will be a fuel-efficient car, offering up to 18 km per liter. When it comes to comfort, the hatchback comes equipped with a center armrest, fabric seats, dual rear-headsets, storage compartments, and cup holders.
In addition, there will be body-colored outside door handles and side mirrors with integrated indicators, chrome inner door handles, rear bumper reflectors, daytime running lights and 13″ alloy rims with a spare tire.
Prince Pearl will compete directly with United Bravo (800cc) and Suzuki Alto (660cc) in the local market, providing the consumers with a very good option at a reasonable price.
Earlier, the price tag was expected to be around Rs 8-9 lacs, however, it is now likely to be available for Rs 1 million. The official price will be announced at the launch event on the 19th.
