Angels and Demons: Indus Motors publishes ad in newspapers comparing the better local cars against imported crap

28 189

I can’t seem to remember the last time I published a headline with such dripping sarcasm, anyhow, a group which goes by the name ‘Fraudulent Car Industry Of Pakistan‘ on Facebook had a member post this image today of Indus Motor’s advertisement in a local English daily signifying how local cars are just better than imported crap.

It talks about bad resale value of imported which we have already given up, parts availability, fuel suitability, suspension and vehicle designs for Pakistani roads and what not to gain attention of local buyers who have gone towards imported cars as Indus Motors failed to fill the gap left open by the local auto industry.

Faraz Haroon talks about just that here.

These are just desperate measures done by Indus Motors to save itself from the buyers who are not interested in the points raised by Indus Motors in the advertisement any more. They just want good choices and modern equipped car and some value for money for their hard earned dough.

    Still the imported cars are better…….. even Japnies Alto is better then Local Toyota Corollla.

  4. Suhaib Aamir says

    Raise the standard and quality of the brand new cars as compared to the Japanese beauties then portray these comparisons. I am so happy that Indus motors and other pakistani companies are loosing their market share.

    This advertisement shows how imported car demolished the market share of local car. they cant deceive the people by such adds. people know well that these local corollas are monster not the imported.

  6. Muhammad Hasnain Hirji says

    Pathetic attempt to divert consumer attention!

  7. Khurram Vakassi says

    IMPORTED CARS ARE MUCH MUCH BETTER…….SUSPENSION, FUEL ECONOMY, FEATURES, COMFORT, DRIVE and MUCH MORE, INSTEAD OF BUYING LOCAL VEHICLES AND WASTING MONEY…..

  8. Fahad Irfan says

    I believe the quality is same since manufacturers here also have the exact same ISO standards which are governing auto manufacturing outside Pakistan. However imported vehicles are not made for Pakistan for example there suspension is softer. the biggest problem is availability of parts.

  9. Syed Ihsan Shah says

    to which cars we say imported ones, if u people remeber last days toyota recalled about 7.4 million cars around world due to fault only in side mirrors, these cars are re tested by toyota auto engineers, then we import thm, also they are brand new and also are tested a couple of times.

  10. Hira Gaba says

    Locally produced cars takes advantage of no competition and when they are facing a stream of competition they are going for unethical advertising Toyota or any Local Car maker has no right to insist on buying locally assembled piece of junks.

    the best way to give customer good quality in reasonable price. how they can criticize same brand being import from other country..

  13. Amin Ahmed says

    Angels have no match with the Demons.

  14. Zeshan Aftab says

    As far as the quality is concerned, local manufacturers should have to improve their standard on alarming basis, otherwise they ll be vanished in no span of time instead of diverting customers attention. however by buying imported cars, we are actually making our economy more grim as BOP are getting worse day by day. we must support our local industry provided they make better cars as INDIA does.

  15. Abdul Wajid says

    Local manufacturers (specially INDUS motor) are Bloody suckers of our hard earned money,
    they were asked to encourage local parts industry, but there are even failed in doing so, because these bloody TYCONS don't let any small industry to share there profits.

    If theyincrease quality of their own cars then peoppe would start buying local again. Plus even though imported cars dont have much resale, their drive comfort level ismuch better than local ones. In short, imorted cars are best.

  27. Hamza Khalid says

    No quality control is not there. If a vitz crashes with any local car, the.local car would be demolished. I have seen.live examples of this and have been a part of this as well

  28. Raja Talha says

    Well to some extent it’s true, except for the resale. But definitely the cars in japan are built for superior octane fuel and have less ground clearance as compared to Pakistani built cars.
    It’s a habit for us Pakistanis to criticize what’s built in Pakistan, a friend of mine has a Honda Fit and it’s roof was dented as a result of hailing had it been built in Pakistan, I’d have assumed it’s because of inferior built quality. As far as the specifications of cars go, let’s not ignore it’s a business; which incorporate specifications according to the market demand and seriously no one wants to pay extra penny for say a ‘valvematic’ engine or an immobilizer except for few 5% of buyers (just an instance). Let me ask all those who want brand new Vitz or Fit are you willing to pay 1.8 million PKR (1.6 million PKR is USA price) for a 2015 Vitz/Yaris? I wouldn’t launch it in Pakistan because I know people will say “I’m better off buying honda city” it’s got a trunk as least.
