    VW has probably more expertise in car making than bribing and so either they improve their skills in kickbacks or forget setting foot in Pakistan. That too, only if their kickback is not outweighed by the three local manufacturers. Pakistan mein usool hai k doosri party rishwat zayada de tu ap apni di hui rishwat se bhi jatay hain aur kaam bhi nahi hota.
    Tab tak, keep assuming VW = Foxy and Foxy alone.

    The news might be old but pakwheels is not discussing it in any thread. It's on pakwheels as a piece of news only.

    VW cars are generally expensive, so little chances of success here.

    Not really. VW Polo starts at 5.33 Lac INR in India which makes around 855000 PKR in current exchange rates. Similarly, VW Vento and Jetta start at around 1260k and 2270k PKR respectively per exchange rates at the time of writing. VW India cars have more features compared to cars in similar or slightly higher price range that we buy in Pakistan.

    The price model of cars in India is not applicable in Pakistan - their production numbers are serveral times higher than ours. Meaning they follow a large volume, low cost business model.

    Not really. VW India sells between 3000 to 4000 vehicles per month spread across various models and that has been the trend over the past 2 years. I found this slightly dated statistic but still worth a look. Its not high sales driving sensible executives to drop prices in India, its mostly the competition, of which India has a lot. Maruti, Hyundai and Honda do command a lot of sales and can afford to drop price margins but the rest of the market has to follow suit because even a small piece of the pie is better than none. In Pakistan, we largely have 3 pieces of the pie which can be shared by others too and this pie will only grow larger in the next few years.
    Pakistan is the 6th largest country by population and the market can accommodate not one but more incoming manufacturers. If Pakistan is comparatively less developed and has less %age of rich people, the sheer size of the market can make for a few viable entrants in the automobile sector. If only regulations encouraged investment and corruption didn't drive top manufacturers (who are used to much more transparent markets), we would see a totally different car market. Fanboys wouldn't be showing off their used JDM imports proudly while dissing local cars either. Again, if only ....

    Nice statistics. VW is the second largest car manufacturer in the world and I believe they can compete the market.

    Update: They recently became the largest one, at least for the first half of the year.
