Buy A Brand New Electric Car in Rs. 24 Lacs
Today, we are here with the first look review of Pakistan’s cheapest Electric Vehicle named Rinco Aria. Nayyar Motors have imported the entry-level hatchback, and currently, they are only selling CBUs. The EV global market is rising, and Pakistan is trying to catch it up. The only issue with the EVs in Pakistan was that most cars like Audi e-tron and BMW iX are high-end cars, but the issue could be resolved with cars like Aria.
The car is engineered and designed in the US but manufactured in China. And size-wise, you can compare it with Suzuki Wagon R.
Price of Rinco Aria
The company is selling this car in Rs. 24 lacs, out of the total Rs. 4.5 lacs are duties, so without duties, it can cost below Rs. 20 lacs.
This EV has a single-motor lithium battery with a range of up to 200 kilometers per full charge if you drive it in ECO mode. In sports mode, its range comes down to 120-30 kilometers on a full charge.
From the front, it quite looks like a European car, especially Fiat 500. The headlights are halogen with the intended pattern in the front. Then you have a honeycombed radiator grille in black color. The overall front look is very curvy and modern.
On the side, you will see 13-inch alloy wheels, non-retractable side view mirrors with indicators and a character line from the front fender to the rear. The side profile is quite basic but doesn’t feel old. You can buy Rinco Aria in seven different colors, including a dual-tone option.
The rear look also resembles European cars, and you will see big-sized halogen brake lamps. The bumper has reflectors and reverse light. The car’s most important feature is its reverse parking sensors, which are not offered in any other vehicle in this segment. You will also find a reverse camera in the car.
The boot space of the Aria is quite similar to Suzuki Alto. In the trunk, you will find the car’s charger in a package. Furthermore, you can increase the boot space by folding the rear seats.
