i remember when i was looking for a car earlier this year, i visited Kia Sherwani Motors. At that time the production of Kia Classic was stopped already and there was just 1 silver colored SX version available for which they were asking a 65,000/- OWN!!!!!!! how come a car which struggles to get sales can claim such a high OWN... sounds silly but showroom persons were demanding it.
Similarly when i went to Chevrolet City Motors to inquire about JOY, there was a last red color 800cc exclusive available for which they were asking 55,000 OWN.... on the other hand JOY was available with zero own and delivery was within 3 days!!!!! just think who the hell would pay a 55,000 OWN for a discontinued car when Joy was available with no own.
It has become compulsory for every car manufacturer to demand premium even on their neglected cars... in US as mentioned giving premium for Hummer can be justified, but how can we justify a hefty OWN on cars like alto, mehran, cuore etc
