@Shueyb...There are many ways to start and grow a successful business...All of which take hard work heart and soul. Pakistan has plenty of this, but few to guide and channel this abundant natural resource.
Please do not think that I think that first year production will be 1 million cars...Far from it. We will start small. The design concept on this project has breakthrough approaches on many fronts, one of the most significant is very low capital and very fast assembly with very low parts count with massive integration.
A highly scaleable approach makes this possible. This way as more cars sell, profits grow which feeds more capital and attracts investment.
If one looks at the root of EVERY successful business and product opportunity, thay are all founded on this:
Create significant content/features at a significantly less cost and do it quickly and better than the competition...Not so easy, huh?
And yes, InshaAllah, I have big plans for expansion in Pakistan. Remember, this is a new class of product, not a traditional car as we know it, but a car that will force you to rethink what is possible. This is because it has immense reductions in "Total Cost of Operation".
This will allow even a taxi driver to lower his charges for passengers, enabling more people to be mobile and thus productive...all while he can make more money with higher profit and more customers...THUS ENABLING HIM TO HELP HIMSELF! This makes for a better society as he may then invest in educating his children and so on with more downstream benefits.
FYI...the initial investment is well into the millions of dollars, and this is feasible to start. If my ideas work well, then it will grow, InshaAllah. If not, then at least I can say in good conscience that I gave everything I had for Pakistan.
I fully expect a 10:1 ratio of export to import when production matures in about 10 years.
Lastly, never forget that talk is cheap. This post was to seek input and advice from the highly respected likes of yourself, the people of Pakistan. I never intended this to be a mouthpiece for me.
I also am well aware of the hundreds if not thousands of non-posting people who read this who may think I am mad, or who are watching with some ill intentions perhaps.
@zeus..thankyou for your concern, my dear friend:
Many have asked me not to be so open, but I don't know how else to be...it's just who I am. I have no fear of others, only Allah and I am on the right path. Even if they CAN steal my ideas AND use them in Pakistan to grow their auto/vendor businesses, good for them...there are plenty more ideas that spring from my well, and I wish them only success.
And besides, zeus, saying I want to build a car like this is very different than showing SPECIFICALLY HOW to do it.
