Chinese cars that could do wonders in Pakistan

China and Pakistan Share the World's Remotest Border

Pakistani auto market, which has a strong, or the dominating market share goes to the 800cc to 1800cc category. So we have tried to maintain a list of Chinese cars that can do really good in Pakistan if launched properly over here.

People of Pakistan if someday decide to go against the odds and buy any of the following cars, then they may create an atmosphere for change. Getting rid of the mafia that drives you, should be our responsibility, since we have the power to not buy resale for few months, and eventually, the following Chinese substitutes will have the same resale as the cars on our streets have today.

    China should properly introduce their cars here in Pakistan with a proper investments and market, my strong survey and research tells me that chines cars are going to break the monopoly of honda-toyota-suzuki…..cause lots of japan’s made car have created a sense of quality and worth of quality that means a 7 lac worth a car should feel like “WHAT?” because when we pay for a mehran car 650 lacs we know that it is worth only 2 lacs comparing prices and quality is a professionals job here in pakistan lots of people have no idea about quality and money…….but know as i have mentioned above people are realizing that i should not be paying 16 lacs for a toyota carola , cause the qualty of carola is not worth the money ………..

  • Fassy

    I do agree that chinese car if introduced properly and are of good standard than at least they would break the myth of 3 money sucking automotive local bullshit giants Honda toyota and especially the belowest standard suzuki. They provide u just a mere piece of below standard crap for lot of money from your pocket. Please any one listening in china

  • Arif

    There should be a competition b/t Chinese and Japanese cars, If you compare the recondition cars which are coming from Japan and Pakistan assembled cars, much difference.
    I would suggest anyone take initiative to introduce Chinese cars in Pakistan market to save the money of our Pakistani people.
