    Default New Corolla Ecotec (Factory Fitted CNG)

    Ok so i went to Toyota Cantt motors in Walton Lahore as my dad wanted to book a new corolla Gli. And there i see the new factory fitted cng corolla xli.

    They have changed the engine technology and now have 4 different injectors for both petrol and cng which was pretty nice to see (somewhat like suzuki liana)

    Now here's my question.

    1. when is the Ecotec Corolla GLI coming? (as cng is only availabe in xli right now)

    2. What is the take of experienced and senior pakwheelers on buying this new cng corolla?

    - Drive it like you stole it!

    CNG GLi was being booked but I believe its booking has now been closed due to overwhelming demand. I will let you know the exact situation tomorrow

    I booked a GLi CNG on the day it was launched. As I said, most probably, due to huge demand they are not taking any more bookings

    Also every dealer has allocations for cars. Check out other dealers and maybe they have any allocation left

    Actually people starting judging toyota that since they were using a similar technology to liana that they would make a flop car too so thats why i said that.


    Anywho, is anyone here gonna suggest something or are we gonna keep talking about stuff like this?

    Insanity needs no words to describe, But let me describe it anyway.

    will they be launching CNG stations as well?? where CNG imported from japan would be filled... CNG days are over, just like a decade ago Diesel fever went out!! Down the days we would only see such cylinders to fill perhaps LPG for Tandoors next doors!!

    The introduction of CNG in the 1.3L VVT-i engine will make the car more sluggish...there's already a pickup lag and no wonder CNG pickup will be more slow....

    there is no Natural gas shortage in Pakistan.there r huge reserves all over Sind n Balochistan. I happen to visit a site under development by Petronas company of Malaysia in the Thal desert near Sukkur. i had a detailed conversation with the project manager n he said that the gas discovered was so much in quantity that they couldnt handle it n linked 3 wells together. Similarly Sind is rich in this resource. Till date as per my knowledge that gas is still not tapped coz of delay in Payments n the security concern for foreigners.this country as per Dr Abdus Samad has more natural resources than Saudi Arabia n Iran combined. Our coal+gas+gold+minerals present in Pakistan makes us one of the wealthiest countries. The only problem is of governance n management which is corrupt like hell. Just like electricity. We have the potential to produce 60,000 MW from hydro alone,50,000 from the Air corridor in Sind n unlimited from thar coal! Enough electricity potential to run more than half of Asia! Current infrastructure capability is around 20,000MW whereass the peak demand is under 19k. Even then we have a shortfall of at times 33% i.e 6000MW . Its we who have to get ourselves n house in order. Now is this the fault of USA n the Jew lobby or India?or AlQaeda? This country has the potential to become a true regional power. Its we who r to be blamed for all the mess. Just a fruit for thought. Just 2% of thar coal can produce electricity of 20000 MW for 500 years a not a single second of loadshedding! When the world is getting energy hungry n the world resources depleting ever wondered why sudden.y Pakistan has become the talk of the world coupled by its strategic location n close proximity to other huge resources of energies like the caspian oil reserves n central Asian countries abundant resources? now this is THE REAL BIG GAME!
