You picked half of the message and ignored it's theme.
13-14km /ltr is in the city. and brochure showed 20+km/ltr in extra urban areas (not in city)
What do u think ? If engine is running and car is waiting for 'GREEN LIGHT' signal.? no fuel is burning ???
Fuel Average written on brochures are referenced with 'Ideal Conditions'
If you drive Exclusive/QQ/Santro @ 80km/hr (using top gear) on motorway, without any applied brakes and with lifted windows, prescribed tyre pressure, 2-passenger. then you can get well beyond 20-22km/ltr.
and might touch 18-20km/ltr with mehran as it has only 4-gears..
One should calculate the milage of extra urban areas...
Chevy/Santro/QQ, these are Powered with Electric Powered Steering, which directly effects the engine performance.
Chevy/QQ/Santro weights around 850kgs,
HP/Weight ratio decreases as the kerb weight increases...
Height/Width plays resistive role when striking wind is concern, hence pays more load on engine.
Height/Width are greater than Mehran (isn't it?)
Mehran weights less than 600kg with CC (800) engine. and no power steering (no extra load)
HP/Weight ratio for Mehran is greater than of Chevy/QQ/Santro
According to my Calculations, if you put in 5F geared box in mehran , it might go 160km/hr. with same engine.
it should do more milage than what it's doing currently
When calculating prices, and comparing with other countries (like india in this case), keep in mind, what is the currency value difference between both countries...
Indian 100 rupee=140 rupee pakistani ??? (almost)
it will directly effect the prices... by about 40 to 50%
Means Maurity costs 200,000 in india will cost 2,80,000 in pakistan ///
Next thing that will change the price is the Market, India has much bigger market and having much more competition as compared to the pakistani market and competitors (isn't it?)
when you produce more/month or per/year, you save alot, on building rentals, salaries, utility bills,... hence more production reduces end user price. it can effect more than 10% here with this case..
Means 280,000 + 28,000 (10%)=308,000(PKR) (Price of Mehran in pakistan )
DO u know how many cars can india produce per year, compared with Pakistan ???
Indian gov. is much sincere than of ours
They work for their nation, and our gov. work for their ownself.
Example: No one can have Non Custom paid Vehicles but or MNA/MPA and other officials can ... (with no justification) , even they (MNA/MPA) start a sort of business by selling NCPs on market prices... (((reference taken by GEO Program a year ago)

What do u say ?
