I dont think you quite understand the concept of "user support" - The Mercedes Benz Gelandewagen is an incredibly fantastic vehicle for offroading or to go where there is no civilization at all. They still are built to the same standard as 20 years ago. By comparison a Toyota Land Cruiser is incapable infront of it.
Why are they not so popular in Pakistan??? - No mechanic in Pakistan is willing to take on its repairs (tooling) and the parts are obscenely expensive, hence people choose to drive a less capable vehicle.
Same with your hybrid, yes you can throw in clauses like Pakistani accountants throw in meetings where engineering designs are being discussed - the accountants put up that a chinese part made from duff metal by underpaid child labor regardless of standard is equally good as an item being produced (umm lets say Siemens) <--------- this is being pointed to you because you are saying that you can rely on your motor winding waala to rewind the coils of the MG... - GO ahead... Been there seen that...
Im not dissing the technology, Im putting up that hybrids are good if the manufacturer of this vehicle backs it in your country, just like the orphan Toyota cars of Japan are not supported by IMC, so if you need an entire front wiring harness complete with plugs and compatibility of a Toyota Will VS edition - you have to source it yourself IMC will not help you. If you are lucky junk parts may help as it is based on an very old technology and design which your mechanics have a little experience of.
If such wild ideas were perfect, the Mitsubishi GDI engines would still be running perfect in Pakistan, the late 90's early 2000 Galants had those, what did they become??? statistics that they dont work in Pakistan, why did they get onto Pakistani roads??? by by people who choose a car by
Yes the GDI engines pulled like trains and unbelieveable for a 1.8 litre engine, but when the engines coked up, misfired, bucked and were renderred undriveable, they were repaired by ustaads as Mitsubishi workshops refused to work on them, no tooling or parts. They became basket cases and are now working with swapped engines from Toyota etc. The same fate is of the Mazda Rotary engines - fantastic engines but the cost of repair and the clumsiness of user error combined with "wrong judgement" of buying it as a hypercar, The RX7 was a sports car built to compete with Porsche 911 and the like, the RX8 was built to be a touring car. Well the RX8s in Pakistan are now Toyozda RXJZ something.. Do they work yes, are they good (IMO no)
The hybrid will also become a statistic, unless you come up with mechanics that are qualified to work on them and you have a supply of parts and also technical reference for them, these cars do not work on "tukka or andaaza" but you wont get it - you are very stuck in the hybrid saga (I remember a south park episode on it).
and speaking of washing machines - why did you not buy a meile?? they are the worlds best - proven time and again.
So if you have the financial capacity to junk the car after its done then good for you, but for the other 90% mid class people who cannot sustain a repair blow of massive amount and to have a car devalue like rotten vegetables - its a few big problems.
