A renowned Chinese company, United Motors to Launch Affordable & Better Car Than Mehran in Pakistan
The second largest motorbike producer in Pakistan, United Motors will be launching its car in 2018 against the Suzuki Mehran, which is ending its 30-year long journey in 2019.
United Motors General Manager Muhammad Afzal said while talking to local media
United Auto Industries is venturing into car and pickup manufacturing. The company will use Chinese technology and market its vehicles under the brand name of United.
The local assembly of these vehicles will begin in the first half of 2018.
Talking about the rumors of the Mehran lookalike, he said, “our car will be totally different from Suzuki’s 800cc variant. Because various features and safety measures will be in that car”. However, the official did not provide any details about the pricing, eco-friendliness of the car. And monthly production targets — but he assured that the company intends to keep the price “very affordable”.
On the other hand, Pak Suzuki plans to say goodbye to the 30-year old Mehran and will launch the next-generation 660cc Alto in the third month of 2019. According to sources, Alto will hit the auto markets with a price tag of around Rs. 9 lacs.
The critics are still unsure about the impact of United Car on Pak Suzuki because Mehran has been the first choice since 1989 for local customers. Who look for an economical solution for their traveling needs.
Mehran’s low-cost spare parts and after-sales network attract the middle-class that cannot afford other local variants or imported vehicles.
