    i recommend you checking pakwheels homepage often.

    Pakistan to go Green - Duties Slashed Off of Hybrid Cars | PakWheels Blog
    50% duties slashed off the total duty due for a 1500cc/1800cc. The new SRO issued by Customs state that it supersedes the previous SRO for 25% off. Meaning that it is 50% off and not 50+25=75%. Wish our Government could make 75% off.

    any idea what will be the effect of new duties on Prius price. I heard from a friend that the prices have gone up in Japan auctions
    Doing simple calculation, if the reduction in duty is 25%, the price drop will be around 150 to 200K I suppose
    just simple calculation, may be some one with an idea how the duties are exactly calculated answer better bro.
    Drive carefully! Remember, it's not only a car that can be recalled by it's maker.

    1- Always always view it in day light.
    2- always check all window, windscreen and back screen glasses for original (Toyota) stamps.
    3- always stand at an angle to see the body curves and lines are all straight and "crisp"
    4- always get on your knees to take a deep look under the body and wheel arches for tell tale signs of repairs i.e. bulges, or color sprayed on glass,wiring or tyres etc
    5- check the engine bay area, especially for any fiddling with wring
    6- check the radiator and A/C condenser for any damaged fins or repairs (peep through the grille or front bumper)
    7- Check the tread of all 4 Tyres for any uneven wear
    8- always take at least 20-25 minute test drive and take full u turns to check for problem with the drive shaft or "Godda". this will be
    the toughest part as most sellers wont be comfortable with it. If i like a car, what i do is pay the seller like 20K as token money just to give the seller the comfort that I am not a tyre kicker. A long test drive will also highlight heating up issues etc.
    9- In case of Prius the test drive will also help you measure the health of the batteries, if they are in good shape, you should average between 20-25 km/l
    10- check all electrics such as engine check lights, abs check lights, a/c, head lights, cruise control, each power window, central locking, touch screen reverse camera, wipers (a repairing them can cost you dearly)
    11- if applicable make sure all annual token taxes are paid.
    12- always check import and custom docs,(especially bill of entry/ bill of laden) as a precaution get a copy of the docs, put your initial on each page and give it to the seller, so that in case any of the papers in missing you can get back to seller.
    13- Never trust the auction sheet, 90% of them are fake!

    All the car dealers are !!#!#*&$$^^$&@^, so I cant recommend any one- I would suggest don't haste go around and try to find a neat clean car. Depending on trim (s -s touring- g or g-touring, T4 etc.) and color, a 07 Prius should cost between 16-18.50.

    Avoid buying a simple S spec Prius (or any basic spec imported car) as there is a great probability that it would have been used as taxi or rent a car in Japan due. If you can afford the extra buck, choose pearl white or pearl black (they cost 100 K extra) as they are most likely used as private cars.

    Final advise, If you can wait, there are numerous importers who offer you to choose a car online from an auction house they will bid for you and import it for you. They will charge between 50K and 100K and take care of every thing from getting the car on ship and getting clearance at the customs.

    Hope it helps.
    Please remember me in your prayers

    Yes you are going in right direction. i am not 100% sure about mileage but it's around 25 KM/L on gentle accelerations. I have 2007 UK prius, i get 16 KM/L on aggressive acceleration and 20 KM/L on gentle. Both with all time AC on.

    check this one. Used Toyota Prius 1.8 S 2010 Car for sale in Lahore - 623751 | PakWheels

    I suggest you to contact Hashmi traders in Lahore. very reliable and trustworthy people. They only import good condition cars and their cars never go to workshops for pre sale repair as 90% of dealers and importers do.

    @dasche thank you very much for your reply. Its great to know abt your car's efficient fuel consumption. What abt the present 50% off duty? Abt how much will these cars come down? I have heard that cars have gone expensive in JP by 200,000 Yen.

    @boy294
    due to decrease in duty, cars price was supposed to come down.
    but due to increased demand of cars in japan, the prices in japan are increased.
    so the end result is not much different than before.
    it may get a little expensive or a little cheaper than before. No big change. What you heard is true. An importer predicted this 1 month ago when govt was expected to reduced duty on hybrids. If you are waiting for prices to come down, don't waste your time because this is not going to happen soon.

    always remember demand and supply formula.

    I am checking this thread for last some days and I am really excited to have one in a day or two inshAllah. I have purchased one from a friend of mine 1.5 G touring selection Leather Package for 1750000. Silver color. I don't have it's pic at the moment. I'll post my pics here once I'll have the car inshAllah.
    Cheers.

    Yes that's right 38 km/l .These numbers are achieved by the test performed by Japanese for the cars made there.This test is called 10-15 mode driving cycle test.It is the official test for fuel economy and emission certification in Japan.For US the test is called EPA .The fuel economy results for PRIUS on EPA are different compared to 10-15 mode test.
