  2. Taha Ishfaq Bhutta says

  3. Ashfaq Ahmad says

    This means? What will the prices sum up to for hybrid cars here in Pakistan? And also the "Upto 1200CC" category; what choices we have there?

  4. Junaid Zia says

    so what's the price of toyota pyrus now.

  5. Ahmed Usman says

    I think vitz hybrid is available.

  6. Zabit Khan Jadoon says


  7. Zubair Ibrahim says

    name hybrid car of 1200cc.

  8. Suhail Chadhar says

    Whts the price of Toyota Prius & Honda Hybrid

  9. Asim Memon says

    And the catch is that no hybrid car is available under 1.2l territory, hahaha :D, correct me if I am wrong.

  10. Raheel Arif says

    Nissan leaf. Under 1200cc

  11. Waqar Manawar says

    new vitz is hybrid now

  12. Waqar Manawar says

    prius , vitz , megan , renault , many more

  13. Chotay Sarkar says

    megan and renault are crap cars,,and prius here is 1600cc,

  14. Chotay Sarkar says

    new one is around $38000 and after registration and 40000 and after transportation and other taxes around 50k

  15. Salman Aslam says

    lemme know when you found anything.

  16. Salman Aslam says

    prius isnt 1200cc man.

  17. Salman Aslam says

    3-5 lac less.

  18. Shadab Mustafa says

    Hyundai Hybrid i10 (998cc)… only hybrid car in 1200cc range 😛

  19. Salman Aslam says

    Can you tell me options fall in 1200cc category budget wise in descending order?

  20. Atough Mahmud says

    Only Hybrid car available in 1200cc is "Smart Fortwo" manufactured by Smart (Daimler AG). As Govt. already impose restrictions of up to 3 years on the import, so a 3 year old Smart going to cost more than one million.In that way this exemption is useless.
    Govt. need to define their policies regarding all electric cars because EV runs on Powertrain instead of engines.

  21. Atough Mahmud says
  22. Salman Aslam says

    None of them have 1.2L base engine.

  23. Atough Mahmud says
  24. Atough Mahmud says

  28. Salman Aslam says

    It does not have 1.2L base engine. So, this one too does not fall in this no-tax category.

  29. Salman Aslam says

    Can somebody find me better option? which at least looks better.

  30. Fraz Malik says

    This is not a hybrid car its full electric

  33. Ahmed Sarfraz says

    Salman Aslam what is its price ???? exact price??

  34. Muhammad Nouman Qaiser says

    There is not a single car worth owning in the under 1200CC category, Do we have a CD70 hybrid? that might be covered.

  35. Saad Tariq Hameed says

    in our dreams the list price in japan ill shoot up ….1 to 1.5 lac difference at max

  59. Waqar Azhar says

    Hi guys,
    is this duty reduction also applies on used cars. If yes then best option is honda FIT/Jazz.
    A used one of 2012 model cost around 125000 before duty on arrival to Karachi port. It can do 30 km per liter on minimum. That makes 3.5 Rs per Km on current gasoline prices. So it is a really good option. Its cheap to run. Its a family hatch back and powerful enough for inter-city travel as well. In short a complete package. Does any body know what is actual duty after new regulation.

    For reference to prices in japan I have found a very good website.

  60. Muhammad Zain says

    thats very much unlikely. they supply the world, not only pakistan 🙂

  61. Muhammad Zain says

    Ahmed Khalid 1500cc and 1800cc

  65. Haseeb Sohail says

    Mate look for honda jazz/fit. Honda insight. Citroen . There are quite few cars if you see out of your Corolla Civic mehran world

  66. Ashfaq Ahmad says

    Eff Jay vitz I have seen comes with semi hybrid ECO option; would that be with 100% duty wavier as well?

  67. Rao Jugnu says

    Salman Aslam There is not much varaity available in Hybrid Cars up to 1200 CC, This should be minimum upto 1300-1500 cc, then People of Pakistan will get real benefit from this Policy..

  68. Rao Jugnu says

    But Remember One thing, If there is a rain to Tomatos in Pakistan and You go to Market to Buy Tomato, Shopman Tells you that is 100 rs per KG, You say that there was Tomato Rain yesterday, Why it is So Costly, He wil reply you if there was Rain tomorow Why you did not Collected for yourself, Why you come here to buy,

    Cut Short, Pakistan main ghareeb awam tak Faida kabhi nahin aata…Is policy ka bhi Awam ko koi faida Nahin hoga……

  69. Rao Jugnu says

    There is not much varaity available in Hybrid Cars up to 1200 CC, This should be minimum upto 1300-1500 cc, then People of Pakistan will get real benefit from this Policy..

  78. Usman Ali Khan says

  79. Hasnain Malik says

    How much Honda civic Hybrid will cost after adding all the duties and customs in Pak???

  80. Fawad Ali Shah says

    Prius and other hybrid cars have already been discouraged by allowing to import only 3 years old cars. Import of Japenese cars had only started when this term was reduced to 5 years. A 3 year old Prius costs 25 Lac so no matter how much you reduce the price, it is not affordable.

  81. Zohaib Badarpura says

    Bro i don't have any idea about Duties…

  82. Junaid Akhter says
