    KARACHI:
    Al-Haj FAW Motors Private Limited held a launch ceremony for the introduction of two new automobiles in the Pakistani market at a local hotel.
    The company aims to introduce a mini van (the FAW X-PV) and a mini pickup truck (the FAW Carrier) to Pakistani consumers. The FAW X-PV’s price has been kept at Rs699,000, while the FAW Carrier is priced at Rs609,000.
    The cars will be assembled in Pakistan from June 2012 onwards. On the occasion, CEO of Al-Haj FAW Motors Hilal Khan Afridi said that the cars have been priced competitively, and profit margins kept low, in order to tap local markets.
    “The future of automobiles in Pakistan belongs to Chinese technology; it is effective, and very economical as compared to its Japanese and
    American competition,” he said.

    I think they are coming soon, good to see the Chinese Auto mobiles, it will help reduce prices


    Stupid budget decreased regulatory tax 50% on cars above 1800cc

    no benefit to ordinary users

    but hopefully if this is allowed then we may see a decrease in prices !!

    If these Chinese brands are following international rule of standardization like ABS brakes, and other security parameters then the regular customer will be interested in these cars

    If the government is going to invite Chinese brands for competition and joint production, then Indian TATA should also be invited for joint setup in Pakistan.

    The Pakistani Auto industry is incredibly corrupt.
    The mafia have made it that only crappy 30 year old cars can be sold and that too for a little less then a modern car.
    Pakistan needs to drop the import tax on cars and encourage competition.
