You are quiet welcome entwicklung brother for appreciating my input.
I just saw the Smart ForFour and extremely pleased at what I saw. For other Pakwheelers, I am uploading the pictures. This car is RIGHT ON THE MONEY.
If you just bring Smart ForFour to Pakistan as it is, it will sell like hot cake. But as you said, you want to design a car in Pakistan and your work is NOBLE.
Like any startup Automaker, they use a base car, which they copy, everyone does it. Why reinvent the wheel. So, you already have a great European Car, Smart ForFour, to be used as a base, both for design, power, safety and other features.
Keeping in mind, that, Japanese have all the latest technology, but it saddens all the Pakistanis to see what kind of junk they are selling us at exhorbitant prices. Even, Corollas and Civics, as nice as they are, are being sold at TWICE their International Market Value. Can you believe this non sense. A Corolla like 2.0D in US sells for $12, 000. Which is about Rs. 7lakh, and it is fully loaded, automatic. In Pakistan they sell you Manual transmission basic car, for 12lakh, which is about $20,000. That is pure non sense.
You have a perfect car, Smart ForFour, and use its chasis, Body, and exterior style in mind. People in Pakitan love the hatchbacks.
Infact, most selling cars, due to affordable price are the Hatchbacks. Out of roughly 150,000 cars sold last year, almost 2/3 or almost 100,000 of them were hatchbacks.
Your idea about Price is also right. I will just add that please introduce not just ONE, fully loaded model, but have some variations of it. Meaning, have a basic, just plain, No Airbags, No seatbelts, No A/C, No CNG, No Powerwindows, just 800CC engine, just plain basic shell, starting as Low as possible at the low end around Rs. 250,000 inclusive of taxes, and Move up the range all the way upto Rs. 500,000 with All the fancy things for those that can afford, with A/C, more powerful engine (same brand as basic one, ofcourse, i.e. whether VW 1000CC, etc. but more powerful), Airbags, Seatbelts, Powerwindows, CD player, etc.
Are you interested in making the Engine in Pakistan One Day. As almost all the cars that are almost Pakistani, like Mehran and Revo, have foreign engine and transmission. It will nice to have a 100% Pakistani car with everything sourced from or made in Pakistan by the manufacturer.
If you are interested in Sedan version, Suzuki Baleno, or even Suzuki Margalla (Swift), are also quiet attractive, with few changes with starting price of Rs. 500,000.
