Indus Motors launches Prius for 4.5 Million rupees
We first broke the news about Indus Motors launching the Toyota Prius by the end of 2013, and so it has. 3rd of December was the official launch date and it is being launched at PC Karachi.
Ever since the government’s relaxation on duties and taxes for Hybrid cars, all auto manufacturers are rushing towards introducing their own hybrid cars to compete with the grey market imports however, it seems that auto manufacturer will fail to battle the grey market due to the price at which Indus Motors have launched the Prius.
The Prius as listed on Indus Motors website is priced at 4.5 million rupees, which is 1.5-2.5 million rupees more than what the same model used imported Prius costs.
At the Pakwheels’ classified results for the same model imported Prius, the price begins with 2.2 million rupees, which is more than 50% less of the price of new Prius from Indus Motors.
The Prius launched by Indus Motors comes equipped with a 1.8 liter engine and a hybrid motor. Other specs include; Push Start and Dual A/C amongst other which can be read here.
The 1.8 engine is 2ZR-FXE, whose different variant comes in the 1.8 Corolla.

y would i save money if i can afford 45lac car its a joke to pakistani people shame on indus motors
You so right look's like pakistan is only for rich people there is no value of human being are we muslim or not
Ghatya car hai
Err.. am I being punked?
bonafide gay car of the century….
I think Indus plan is not to sell it, but to ban its import in used car category
A car which is ugly and not powerful is for 4500000 rupees……in US even Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited Edition is cheaper than this………….
45 lac to save fuel? Makes sense if i have to drive from khi to isb and back daily.
a very bad move at a very bad time by indus,you can easily get a C 250 or even used E 200 in that price range but i beleive pakistanis are too dull, they will evetually fall for this too
is that even a car? 😛
Or a brand new. Series for 48
3 series 1.6
One Can Buy Honda CRZ and Honda Civic in 4.5M Rs…

Bbbwwwuahahaha. Ahem ahem.ill Buy a new civic fr 25 n use 2 million for fuel n enjoy the resale also.
very unethical business practice by indus motors
Gratias Mr.Sharif! This colossal relief of yours to the inflation-hit elite class is indeed a praiseworthy act.
Agree Ali Sher, really a joke but I agree there are people who can afford it. And it will become more of a status symbol than a fuel saving car….:(
These Cars are for Rich people. Nothing for Ordinary people here
ial get the Japanese Sports version for 2.9 million instead 😉
this is bullshit, the one who can spend 4.5m on car i dont think he needs to save fuel or he is touchy about saving fuel,
