Prince DFSK is Launching More SUVs in Pakistan Soon.

The parade of SUVs continues to make its way to the Pakistani market with no end in sight. With the prospective entrants in the market such as Haval Jolion, Changan Uni-T, Oshan-X7, Proton X50, Seres SF5, and lest we forget, BAIC BJ40, X25, and Chery Tiggo 8, the SUV market of Pakistan has all of a sudden become crowded.

However, Prince-DFSK is seemingly not finished introducing more SUVs in the Pakistani market just yet. As per several reports shared over the weekend, the Chinese automaker is planning to launch two new SUVs in Pakistan, namely, Seres S3 and the Glory 580 Pro Star version.

Seres S3

The Seres S3 is an all-electric crossover SUV that is set to be launched in the 3rd quarter of 2021. The SUV features a single electric motor and a 52 kWh battery pack that gives the SUV 160 horsepower, 300 Newton-meters of torque, and a range of between 230 and 405 kilometers.

Being a modern SUV, it has plenty of tech features that make for great value. Reports suggest that the price of the Seres S3 is likely to be around Rs. 5.5 million.

The other offering will be a more high-end variant of the DFSK Glory 580 SUV, the Star trim level.

Reportedly, the new trim-level will feature some cosmetic changes, a better out from similar 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, a few additional features such as Lane Assistance, Blind Spot Detection, Front Car Collision Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Speculations are being made that this higher trim variant of the DFSK Glory 580 will also cost around Rs. 5.5 million, although no reports have been shared by the automaker itself about the prices of any of the new entrants.

Last week, Prince DFSK revealed on its official Facebook page yesterday that another new SUV is being co-developed by DFSK and Huawei, and it could be “hitting the roads of Pakistan soon”. It would also be a Seres product called the SF5 which would be a premium EV, featuring the powertrain and mechanicals from DFSK and the software and tech features from Huawei.

It remains to be seen, however, as to which of the aforementioned cars would make it to the Pakistani market soon.

Green Line, Orange Line BRT: Chinese company to provide 100 new energy buses



BEIJING: Zhongtong, one of the earliest listed bus manufacturers in China has secured an order to provide 100 units 18-meter new energy buses for Green Line and Orange Line Bust Rapid Transport (BRT) in Karachi.

As the first batch of new energy powered city buses in the city, they will serve on the Green-color and Orange-color BRT routes after their arrival, providing greener, more intelligent and more comfortable transportation services for local residents, according to a local media website here on Wednesday.

As the largest city in Pakistan, Karachi is also the economic hub in the country. With its strategic location and fast growing economy, the port city has been confronted with increasingly severe traffic congestions. Tweeting in Urdu from his official account recently, Federal Minister of Planning and Development Asad Umar informed about the completion of a prototype bus for Karachi’s Green Line Metrobus project.

It is currently being tested by the Chinese authorities for any mechanical and safety issues. Once the phase of the inspection is completed, a total of 80 buses will be shipped to Karachi and added to Green Line’s fleet. The mass transit project is expected to become operational in this year.

Green Line Bus Rapid Transit is a federal government project. It is the largest of all the other proposed metro bus routes in Karachi.

It is expected that after completion, it will facilitate over 300,000 passengers on a daily basis. Construction on the project started in January 2016 by the Karachi Infrastructural development Company (KIDC) and, nearly three years later, it is still underway.

Starting from Merewether Tower in the central part of the city, all the way up to Surjani Town in northern Karachi, the total length of Green Line BRT is 26 km.

According to the proposed map, it will be connected with the other proposed routes of the Trans Karachi Breeze project at different points.

It may be mentioned here that so far, Zhongtong’s new energy public transportation solutions have been greatly welcomed in South Korea, Argentina, Germany, Chile, Paraguay, Hungary, etc.

In addition, over 70,000 units Zhongtong new energy buses and coaches have been working smoothly across the globe, making a huge impact on the global drive on emission reductions.
