I just wanted to share with you guys something . If you check the past sold Prius cars in Japan of 2007 model from here(Used Car Auctions - Japan Partner) you will find that the cars having mileage lower than 50,000 kms were sold on an average rate of 10,000 US dollars and above, those with less price were all accident, repaired cars . Even those having mileage between 50,000-100000 are priced not less than 900000 and good grade cars are above 10,0000 $. Now if you do simple maths you will find that cost for the taxes, transportation, for a 2007(taking into consideration duty relief for hybrid) it comes about 7,00,000 if you add the profit assuming minimum of 100,000 it comes to 800,000. Add in the cost of good car(minimum 1 million) it will result in total cost of 1.8 million in pakistan. So it is confirmed that prius being sold below 1.75- 1.8 million(imported from Japan) is either:
- High mileage car (above 1,50,000 usually and most probably above 200,000)
- Mileage between 100000-150,000 but low grade car(3.5 and below)
- Accident/repaired car
There is no other possibility of the car being sold below 1.75- 1.8 million :). This is for 2007 cars , 2008 and above good grade,less mileage cars are even costiler than that.
