    @DesiBoy,

    Thanks for keeping this topic alive every year. Without your interest most of us would not have bothered to dig it. About the car itself, it actually gave a sense of Achievement to all Pakistani Local Car enthusiasts.

    I saw a few Revos in Islamabad in my last trip to Pakistan in Summer of 2011. They looked beautiful. Revo Put Pakistan on the map of Car Making Nations, and we are proud of it. All cars have product life cycle, even in US there have been some cars that lasted only few months, that does not mean that the whole country is not capable of making a car.

    Pakistan is fully capable of making 100% of its own car. Its more a matter of optimal business move than it is of capability of an entire nation. If some businessman thinks its a viable option where he can make profit out of making a 100% Pakistani car, he will do it in a heartbeat.

    At this point people prefer Imports, and only Japanese Brands, due to decades of mental conditioning that only Japanese brands are worth buyin, no European, American, models exist in Pakistan, only 3 Japanese Assemblers control the whole market, as of now. It can change for the better, if the government decides to do so.

    Wish people had supported this First Pakistani Car. Then today, we did not have to face the 6 Lakh Rupees, Mehran. The only one left in the crowd, with a 1980s design. If Revo was supported by Pakistanis and the Govt of Pakistan, it may have developed into something very good by now. Maybe who knows, with power windows, Sun roof, and even bigger version with Diggi and many more upscale models may have come in the market from Adam Motors.

    But we have NO Right to Complain now, if Mehran is being sold for 6 lakh, and there is No Valid Competition left in the market, because we Pakistanis KILLED the Good alternative to Mehran which was Revo. Happy driving in the Worlds most outdated stone age technolgy, called Mehran, being sold at many times more than what it is worth.

    Same goes true for all the other junk being assembled in Pakistan by Indus, Honda, etc. with least amount of options and sold at twice the international market price. None of these assembler mafia is benefitting the Car industry of Pakistan. Can't believe they are selling cars without Cruise Control, Or Standard Automatic Transmission, 4 Airbags (2 Front 2 side side curtain), Power windows, which come Standard and available options in almost all the Corollas, Civics, Swifts being sold all around the world, except Pakistan and all of these are being sold for much more reasonable and lower prices than in Pakistan.

    After 10 years, still remember this car. Wish people and Government of Pakistan had supported Adam Motor company, within 10 years time, this car would have been developed a lot better than Mehran, which is still the same shape but now costs 7 Lakh rupees. This car would have been much more affordable, and perhaps in the 4 to 5 Lakh range with starting model and in 6 Lakh range with power windows, power steering, airbags, ABS, etc. What a loss. Pakistanis only deserve Mehran, for not supporting Revo.

    "What made it go out of production?"

    Mostly it was Government of Pakistan, PM Shaukat Aziz, and President Musharaf, who failed to take notice of this very critically important milestone in Auto Industry development phase. Initially at launch of Revo, PM Shaukat Aziz, indicated that government do what it could to support the First Pakistani Designed car, but most probably due to strong Auto Mafia Cartel in Pakistan, particularly Suzuki Motors, did not want to have a good competitor. So Government of Pakistan backed away from Support of purchasing Revo for Taxi Scheme, etc. as they initially promised. The Government could have also financially supported by simply giving tax break for 4 or 5 years, which they did not do, instead they impose about Approx. Rs. 80,000 tax on each car sold. This plus lack of orders and financial constraints faced by AMC, forced the company to stop production. It was a golden chance for Pakistan to increase its Industrial progress and increase its GDP and many other allied industrial capacities. Government of Pakistan is still not serious about developing TRUE Auto Industry and not just Assembler Mafia, which we currently have and will continue to have for decades to come, unless Government of Pakistan steps in and makes policies for development of Indigenous Auto Industry.

    How many of the Pakwheeler Fans of this car (Revo) go out and buy it when it was on sale?

    You'll probably get the answer.

    Any product needs a sustained demand for it to exist in the market.

    The fact that Indians still remember this car, i.e. DesiBoy, who used to argue with me over this car back in 2005 when it was launched, is a proof that this Revo car was good. Look at what is still happening in Pakistan, still those same corrupt Auto Mafia, looting Pakistani people, and Pakistani people don't even care. Imagine if the Pakistanis had supported this company over ten years ago, they would be seeing a variety of cars all made in Pakistan with good quality. Pakistanis did this to themselves. Just like the corrupt leaders they keep selecting, you can't blame anyone but your own self. Well good luck. Pakistan will NEVER make a car of its own, because its own people don't want to support Pakistan.

    No one cares about the country in Pakistan. From average poor people, all the way up to the people in charge. The Indians started designing their own car just in 1998, with Tata Indica being their first ever Modern Indian Car, which was actually not even designed by Indians but Italians, the engine was that Tata Indica was made with Fiat Italian imported Technology, everything was imported in that First Indian Car. Few years later Pakistanis designed their own Car, Revo, in 2005, and launched it, the only thing imported was engine, which was to be Made in Pakistan at a later stage.

    An average of 5,000 Car per year needed to be sold, in order to keep the factory open. At first, Shaukat Aziz promised that he will buy few thousand cars for Government departments. But did not honor his pledge, due to unknown reasons. Not only that, but Government of Pakistan also opened import of USED cars, which further damaged the survival rate of a newly made Pakistani Car.

    Third factor was lack of interest from Pakistani people. At that time, Pakistanis were paying 3 to 4 lakh for a Mehran, but Revo was launched for an unbelievable price of 2 Lakh, and again Government ruined it further by levying 69,000 Rs tax on it, to make sell for 2.69 Lakh. Which was still a low price for a brand new, and better made car. If Revo had survived they made have offered airbags, anti-lock brakes, etc all under 6 to 7 Lakh which Mehran is looting the customers with.
