    Default Producing pakistani car

    Why somebody in pak not making alternative to mehran or other cars? when pakistanis can compete honda 70 in bike section they can definitely do the same in automobile section too. when prices of all cars are high it is best opportunity to produce a pakistani car.
    what if few investors get together and start the venture? how much investment will be needed? we can surely learn from the Revo experience and compete with suzuki with some better strategies. what do you guys think?

    Not very easy cause mainly it has to deal with the government for license purpose which is very hectic thing, then you will have to surely import the parts to assemble here that thing will cost you a lot of tax, then after assembly you got to produce dealer cut, the end price is always high and then no one prefers to buy it. In order to sale a pakistani brand you got to make a highly price effective car lets say almost half the price of Mehran in 800cc category in order to bring good sales results. Thats the case.

    Main issues to address are:

    Get license from the government (includes renewal costs also)
    Import Parts
    Assembling process
    Maintain price effective policy
    Create dealers
    Make availability of parts in local markets
    Dealing with reputation problems/wrong myths created by big fishes in market

    ^^i think credibility problem can be overcome by joint venture with some reputed international company. like getting engine and body design. the only main problem remains price.

    I agree to half you of your statement, if someone can get the licence from the government to produce cars in Pakistan. The trick would be to circulate the news in mass media about Pakistan MADE car applying for certification and that might help create pressure on govt to issue.

    The thing if you start building a car in Pakistan you have to have it "Made In Pakistan" so you do not IMPORT a single part... believe me just make a good engine make parts from local market body can be crap (design can not) have CNG in it with almost half the price of Mehran with seat belts and it will sell like hot cake (with some adverts off-course)...

    I will sell my Alto and buy a total "Made in Pakistan" car even if its crap just to support it.

    So Id say,

    Get license from the government (includes renewal costs also)
    MANUFACTURE PARTS
    Assembling process
    Maintain price effective policy
    Create dealers
    Make availability of parts in local markets
    Dealing with reputation problems/wrong myths created by big fishes in market

    most rich people take simple route to make money, they open CNG stations in numbers....

    The idea is good but it seems like a far fetched dream during this never ending political turmoil of Pakistan.

    The bottom line is that the amount of money which we will pay to the govt. to get the licence issued; double the amount of money will be paid by big fishes to NOT issue the licence. Thats the case here my bro.

    I have done enough research on this.
