There is also an unofficial information that these first few dozen vehicle [ around 100 Units ] on introductory price are CBU/ Imported units which gets a 50% subsidy on duty as per auto policy which allows certain number of units for launch purpose . These were imported few months ago. So we are seeing somewhat an attractive pricing. Once the local production starts later in the year, the pricing will be higher. So, these first 100 CBU/ Imported vehicles are first come first serve basis. The PKDM / Pakistan assembled vehicles will have a different price and possibly higher.
Rumors are the introductory price for limited numbers of units as now are with almost negligible or almost "zero" profits and KIA is doing this to attract the market.
The price will be increased by almost 750,000/- and 500,000/- for AWD FWD respectively for the locally assembled Sportage. This is an unofficial and unconfirmed news as of now but the price will definitely be increased for Pakistan assembled units after initial CBU launch deliveries terminates .
