I have seen dealers in Lahore asking anywhere from 3.6-3.8 million for these.
    You have owned it for a short time, but I you had to point out some negatives ( slow acceleration etc etc) what would they be? ( no car is perfect)

    I love the wheels you chose for the car, makes it look amazing.

    Congratz brother and stay blessed.
    Thank you so much for the kind words, means a lot .. Right now, 2015 z version without navi costing would be around 3.2-3.3 million approximate ... and there might be a couple of negatives but trust me acceleration is not one of them if I really have to point out, I'd say cruise can't be set above 110 and center console a bit prone to scratches, initial conversion between ev mode and hybrid mode could be smoother .. hope that helps

    How about getting a protector cover cut and aligned to perfection applied, still might be a bit dull but saves the day for longer run.

    Any idea how xe, xf would cost. And why can't we import from India. Heard the ones made there are better capable of working in extreme winter conditions. Just curious.

    Well, I imported it through my cousin so no real contacts for purchasing I'm afraid, all I can help with is about costing and features and feedback and stats

    I'm pretty sure we can't import cars from India.

    Yup, kind of a turn off. Both governments still hung up on past. So, it's UK then only being the option. I guess probably cost around 60-70k $ reaching here for the base models. Still such beauties jaguar produced with xe, xf, xfr lineup. Rising rotator dial gear selector being the party piece. Not to forget the rising air vents when start button pushed once after heart beat style fading lights

    Those are epic! I remember the video in CarThorttle...
    Lexus these days are awesome too. Japanese writing and software in these imports is a turn off for me.

    I fall in love with them when james may reviewed the XF such beauty such, sound, such gadgets then Jeremy reviewed the XJR well mostly going side ways yelling "Powerrrrrr" with cloud of smoke and blinking head lights.
    Yes, those language barriers are a big problem and if u go for a non OEM device it just makes u feel something is still missing.
    I tried looking for jaguars on Japanese auction sites but were old models. Still no idea how would it cost.

    A big thank you to drzac for this post. I am one of those who believe that the Vezel will be a serious contender in our market in times to come. Was playing around with the idea of buying one, specially considering the dearth of options in the 3-3.5mln price range and this post has played a major role in convincing me to go for it. Alhamdolillah, I have purchased a 2015 Pearl White Z Grade Vezel (brand new) which will hopefully be on the sea sometime next week. Now the agonising waiting period begins...

    Going through this post today, I noticed someone had mentioned that you cannot drive hybrid cars during heavy rains or in deep puddles/flooding. To check on this, I tried to find a Vezel manual online and managed to find one that had been translated to English. And yes - there is a section that warns against using the vehicle in flooded areas, puddles or in heavy rain. That's not a major problem here in Karachi because it doesn't rain very often but for lahore, drzac please be careful. Once my Vezel is here, I will try to do justice to it with a post like this one.

    Once again, thanks drzac for making the decision easier.
