Ghandhara Nissan Limited starting its operation in 1981 under the license for selling Nissan vehicles in Pakistan. Later on in 1992 the private company turned into a public one, but was it really a public’s company?
Nissan has a huge make around the world and they give good competition to their competitors in the market of trucks. UAE serves Nissan to be a good customer too because of their love for Nissan Patrol. What about Pakistan? Why can’t we be fortunate enough to have cars of Nissan?
A very big reason for Nissan Ghandhara to pack up from the soil of Pakistan was the resale mindset. Ever wondered why do we even have this resale concept? Almost half of the nation is just running with this mindset, like a sheep following sheep but take out five minutes of your busy schedules and think about it.
I’m talking to all those people who switch their Toyotas whenever the new model arrives not because it’s the latest model but majorly because the car has breath its last; waiting for Honda to introduce their new shape city as if a miracle is going to happen. No way…it is going to be the same tin sheet with some different curves and different lights. Is that what you deserve? We all have helped these automakers to control us. We have the power to change the automakers.
People here are after the resale mindset because the cars produced by our local automakers do not even measure up to the average benchmark and they need to be changed after every five years.
A friend of mine was desperately waiting for the new Honda City so that he can purchase one but unfortunately Honda could not come up with it. Also here I would like to thank PakWheels to let the customers and fans know that Honda is not going to introduce the vehicle anywhere near the future otherwise they would have been waiting with 1.7 million rupees just to buy a car which is not worth more than a million. Back to the topic, my friend got frustrated and completely boycotted Honda. He sold his city and purchased Nissan Bluebird and guess what? He’s more than happy.
The 1.5 liter engine it is equipped with is better than your brand new 1.6 Toyota Corolla Altis and your brand new 1.5 Honda City Aspire. The vehicle has a good comfort level along with roomy interior; above all it has good safety features too, with a passenger airbag which is absent on almost all of your local vehicles. The bitter truth is you see this beautiful vehicle once in a blue moon. This vehicle surely deserves better treatment, better coverage and better customers.
It’s high time we start thinking about changing our mindsets, because only commenting in the comment section below against our automakers is in no way going to help. We need to be pro-active on different platforms.
