    Default Chevrolet Aveo Launched

    Saw the advertisement in Dawn today.
    1500 cc , ABS , CD/MP3 player , steering wheel audio controls , immobliser , keyless entry.
    Really nice interior.
    Price isn't given and the website hasn't been updated yet.
    Will go to check it out today.

    @nightsurfer
    Bhai aap nei wohi baat ki jo may nay ki. Probably i had not been able to convey my msg properly.

    As for your saying that "Prices are charged as per market conditions and products are launched according to customer's liking."

    Well I was talking about Individual Customer Demands. Ofcourse one has to take care of how market is growing. Placing a car of City/Liana level at a price of 15lac is a foolish step.
    I was talking that when ppl come and say...That car should be of 8 lac. Next one says...No that should be of 7lac...so on and so forth. I was mentioning that behavior.
    You're absolutely right.

    I think I'd been unable to pass on my msg properly.
    @gem_guy is right.

    I thought You mis-understood me. I hope more new cars come to Pakistan to end the monopoly of Suzuki & co. I was actually expecting a hatchback.

    me and akbar went to check out the car the day it was launched and here it how it went

    the moment i opened the door and saw inside i turned around and asked the sales person "this is the top of the line model, i want to look at the base line model" and i got the reply "sir this IS the base line model, the only difference is A/T and M/T"

    both me and akbar glared exchanges, needless to say we were throughly impressed and shocked

    I don't understand what they are trying to achieve here, are they trying to kill optra?

    i wish we had more choices in hatches, VW is coming soon and DAMN i can't wait to see Golf's on our roads, i have had enough of suzuki ******** ripping us off and we are so brain washed that we will rather buy a piece of **** mehran than Revo

    thankyou

    @nightsurfer

    I guess if this also flops, (seeing the consumer thinking in PK, i'm sure it will) maybe Chevrolet wud introduce a 1.0l hatchback!

    @redbull

    seeing the specs, it definitely has to be underpowered!!
    RX-7? An RX-7? Really? I hope you know it's just a sports car with a washing machine under the hood.

    "Aveo Sedan 1.3 would have been a good idea. ( Price of Aveo sedan base model should be 800,000 Max. minus abs, Cd changer, steering wheel audio controls,keyless entry. etc) "

    DAMN RIGHT BRO!...ROCK ON!!

    Considering its low resale, it wud atleast sell more than SUNNY!

    I am glad that you agree bro!. I hope they do launch the Aveo hatchback because all the 1.0L cars are outdated and people most definitely want some change. I think that is partly the reason behind Vitz's success.

    The Pakistani market still has a lot of potential. Specially this 1.0L hatchback segment.

    we always blame local car companys for not introducing new models and our auto industry that we dont get new companys like ford and jaguar and mazda etc etc but i think that they know even if they inroduce new models with high features and low price no one will buy them and no one buy models from new companys for example if chevrolet inroduce new epica will anybody buy it over the accord?? our peapole are more then happy with the mehran and all the crap stuff that we get here and our pepole dont even care our know about safty systems all they car about is resale and it is a suzuki or a toyota or a honda. (sorry for gramer mistakes i am in a hurry)

    These Nexus guys are also morons.
    They souldv launched one model with fewer features , done the same with the Joy.
    No one gives a damn abt safety and stuff.
    But i stll think this a a really good deal , and the interior is sweet. Just tht the ppl are stupid.

    And we cant blame the local manufaturers for making cars tht are crap quality and overpriced. As long as ppl continue to buy cars like the Xli , why should they care? Its our own fault. Tmrw Indus will increase the Xli by 40k and ppl will still buy it.
    w0i dO p3oPL3 TyP3 L1K3 tH15 , or should i say , Di5?

    @c123pk
    lolz @ 10 yrs exp.

    =======================================
    @All

    What are we concerned with? Company's successful sales? or Change in customer behaviors? What do we wanna see?

    The comments here like "do this and that with a car; put that much price on it and it'll be a HIT". I hope we are not spokesman or marketing persons of any company.

    Let a car fail... Let more to come. Kabhi to yie log Banday k Putter banay gain.
    The main reason due to which people adopted such behavior was the exploitation by Toyota, Honda, Suzuki of our market, unawareness of our public and dishonest govt. Thats why they've successfully made majority of us Fool.
    With the arrival of more and more cars and brands the trend will ultimately change. For short term failure of a company's product we just forget what fruits can it bring in future even though if it gets failed.
    Chevy's here with its products. Proton is here. Renault is gonna make its entry soon, Let others come. We'd see that one day ppl will get realisation that they've been made fool.

    These days I'm doing a Financial Analysis Project on Toyota and Honda. An interesting fact for you guyz. In 2005 Indus Motors Co. lost 43% market share of Corolla as reported by IMC. Their capacity is limited and demand is high. This will DEFINITELY shift consumer focus to other brands. The end of PREMIUM will happen this way only. Be loyal to people than company.

    keep dreaming sir,,,,,one day ,,,,one day ,,,,,,,come to reality

    the reality is that there is a thing callled marketing policy,,,,,,,,,,,,,which in chevrolet's case is zero,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if u want successful sales u shud price ur product in accordance with the one that is already successful,,,,,,,,,,i-e xli,,,,,city,,,,,liana,,,,,,,,,,,just what the lancer did,,,,,,,,,,,brought the price equal to city and xli,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and there u go ,,,,,,,,,the sales are up by leaps and bounds,,,,,,,,,,,,,still bringing down the prices was late

    u know a car wud never be successful after 2 0r 3 years of its launch,,,,,,,,,,,,,,its a hit or a flop right from the month its launched,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,bcoz then the flop car gets a tag attached to it,,,,,,,,,,,,,that its a flop,,,,,,,,,,,,,,tough it might be one of the best cars,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,so the policy shud be spot on right from the first day,,,,,,,,,,,,,this is the reality

    and this is what it takes to change the mentality of ppl in pakistan,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the automobile industry has to change it ,,,,,,by providing good cars in the range of junk like the XLI,,,,,,,,,,,rather than waiting for it to change itself

    this is the reality,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and this is how things shud go
