    Default Carla - The Red Prius - aliusman420

    Salaam everyone.

    Presenting "Carla"

    So it's been quite a while since I bought the Prius but never got time to create a thread for it specifically, although shared its pics in several forums.
    It is a 2010 model, S-Touring Edition in Barcelona Red color, imported in end 2013 and with me since 16th January 2014.
    I bought it from one of the few reliable importers out there, that is, @Sharabhi a.k.a Shahzaib Rasheed bhai. The deal went real smooth, I saw the pics of the car on his Facebook page JDM Imports and called him up. After a bit of discussion, he sent me every possible detail he had of the vehicle even before I made any commitment to buy the car. The details were the original auction pictures, original Japan yard pictures with odometer pictures of the actual mileage, original auction sheet (which I got verified from my own person in Japan and it was as it is) and container unloading video and pictures. Some days later my friend who lives in Karachi and owns a Prius himself combined with all sorts of knowledge he has acquired about hybrids in his 2+ years of ownership, went and inspected the car and gave me the verdict that this is the car to go for. I made the token payment to Shahzaib bhai's friend here in Islamabad and after a day or two, the car got loaded on the truck and reached Islamabad in the next few days. When it arrived, I along with my mother went and took a test drive of the car and reached the decision of making the payment the same day. Some hours later we came with the pay order and took the delivery of the vehicle.
    I am well-aware of the JDMs that are being brought into Pakistan and this car is absolutely not like them, it is a class apart. When I was buying this car, many friends said me to buy a MarkX, a brand new Civic or a 2006-07 Mercedes C180 and even though they are good cars, I needed a car which looks good, drives good and is easy on my wallet, and Prius was the ultimate choice.
    Even being a 2010 model, the car feels brand new Masha Allah, the drive is highly comfortable, the road grip is far beyond the local sedans, high speed cornering is a piece of cake in this vehicle Alhamdulillah, and among all the other luxuries, it is fulfilling the one Prius is well-known for, it's fuel consumption
    I am in no way a hypermiler and many times I have to drive like a maniac while getting late for University or some friends gathering, and AC is on all the time, still the car fares far above than other cars like Civic or Altis. To be very honest, I cannot be more satisfied in another car after driving this beauty. Even though the price tag was higher than the so-called market price (of the accidental cars), the car is worth every penny I tell you.

    As far as I have seen there is WHT on registration, maybe someone else can guide you better.

    And for you "savings" issue. If we only look at the "fuel cost" perspective. here is a simple illustration of savings that a Prius owner can generate over a period of 2 years.

    Prius Rolla
    Km travelled 50,000 50,000
    Mileage 22 kml 10 kml
    No of years 2 2
    Petrol Price 84 84
    Litres Required 2,273 5,000
    total cost 190,909 420,000
    Savings 229,091

    So even if i sell my prius after 2 years at a 2 lac rupee loss, i will be highly satisfied.
    Nd remember, the more u travel, more the savings..
    And what is the price difference between xli/gli and prius? Where you people will adjust this difference? And yes, xli/gli gives more than 10km/l

    My comments were based only on the fuel savings aspect.
    And please dont compare a Prius with a xli/gli. Prius ki tauheen hai ye

    Buying a 2.6 million car which is, in every aspect, better than our 2.6 million Rolla.
    Its not just Fuel. And this debate can go for ever.

    Due to yen depreciation a good grade Prius with S package can be found for around 21-22 lakhs. And it's the same vehicle as this carla just without rims and touring suspension.
    So this reduces the price gap. Now apart from fuel savings you get hell a lot of better car then corolla; more features, more security, better built quality etc.

    Well most of the people buy prius for petrol saving. Otherwise 90 out of 100 would go for premio anyday. Premio has a more premium exterior

    Thats yor opinion bro. I ll always go fr a Prius, way better lookwise.
    Fuel savings was never an advantage. A person doesnt spend 2.6 million on a car if he is concerned about fuel savings.
    Fuel savings is just an added bonus

    Even before the arrival of Prius in Pakistan, Premio failed to make market. People considered it a same car as corolla/axio just with a different shape. It didn't had anything attractive in it, just it was a JDM. Well Prius has that added fuel saving bonus plus it looks are something apart, different then regular vehicles. And its silent comfortable drive is class leading.

    In karachi premio is more common then prius because it is considered as a prestige car.
    Even when I bought a prius for 2.6million many of my relative and friends said that I should have gone for premio or grande. Prius dosent have the looks of a 2.6million car.
    Now I am really regretting my decision coz the main reason for buying prius was to save money on fuel but now my car has already depreciated about 6 lacs in 4 months. There is no way anyone can save this much on fuel.

    Now I am really regretting my decision coz the main reason for buying prius was to save money on fuel but now my car has already depreciated about 6 lacs in 4 months. There is no way anyone can save this much on fuel.
    How has your car depreciated 6 lacs in 4 months ???
