Let us explore and discuss about the automobile industry and cars of our neighbors. We can focus on cars of all countries,( Pakistani cars, cars of Nepal etc.,)that lie within the Indian Sub-continent
Let us begin with the Pakistani Automotive scene. It is dominated by passenger vehicles from Suzuki, Hyundai etc., and SUVs/Pick-ups from various multi-national and locally made brands.
CNG is very popular due to the low costs.
Let us start with the equivalents of Indian cars in Pakistan.
1st, the Suzuki Mehraan aka our very own Maruti 800.
(These were the pics of the 2005 model)
The price for the base version is a little more than 400000 Pak Rs = Rs2.30 lakh INR
The Suzuki Alto
Cultus aka Esteem Hatch
Several other models of Pak are almost ditto like the Indian ones, like the corolla optra, city etc.
Here is one of Pak's popular small cars, the ADAM REVO, an indigenous product. I had 800 and 105 cc engines, and came with spacious beige interiors. Adam went defunct in 2006 though, because of the insecurity, political turmoil and lack of funds.
