While I do understand your point-of-view; the fact remains the public will be comparing the car to it's closest counterparts (Revo, Santro, Vitz etc).
Pakistan at this point already has a tin-box on wheels (Adam Revo which competes with Mehran) now we need something with power which competes with international standards.
Get the drift? I don't think it's profitable for any company to start competing with Revo at this point, they should instead try to capture a market that Adam hasn't, which is basically higher-level subcompacts.
Think of the market out there?
- College going youngsters
- Small businessmen
- Middle-class women
- People who want a small car in their house but don't want to compromise on quality or infact people who want a second car in their home with good quality
All this can be easily achieved for RS 400,000 to 500,000 which I think the car driving Pakistani's can afford.
A company needs to establish higher standards than Adam Motors at this point, not reinvent their wheel (aka the Revo).
I am not saying that Adam motors did a bad job, they did what they could with their budget, but if a company with a higher budget can surface and see the potential market for a good product I am positive there are Pakistani's who will buy it. We do have national spirit except I don't think most of us want to throw it on a cheap product.
In the end the result is obvious, those who were targetted by Revo still ended up going to Mehran, Coure, Cultus, Santro or Vitz. I am not saying that I expected the Revo to take Pakistan by storm, but at least in a city like Karachi where everyone and their grandmother has a car- I expecd to see a Revo on the streets more often than twice a month. I really am yet to see a few Revos on the road here. It's almost a novelty, or a concept or a myth.
I do wish other people would give their input on this.
