Al-Haj Rolls Out the First Locally Assembled Proton-X70

January 20, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan

Through its state-of-the-art car assembly factory, Al-Haj Automotive (Proton Pakistan) has finally rolled out the first locally made Proton X70. It is described by Proton as “the first intelligent SUV to be produced in Pakistan.”

After a lengthy wait, the locally manufactured Proton X70 has finally begun to roll off the production lines. The car was first introduced in Pakistan in December 2020, and many clients are still waiting for CKD manufactured units to arrive. The official Proton Pakistan website, however, states that delivery of the locally produced X70 would begin in March 2022.

PRICE:

The X70 SUV is now available in two models:

Customers in Pakistan may rejoice, since there is a strong indication that the SUV would be available in showrooms soon as a locally produced version.

  • Executive All-Wheel Drive (AWD) that costs PKR. 4,590,000
  • Premium Front Wheel Drive (FWD) that costs PKR. 4,890,000

Although Proton claims the X70 as Pakistan’s first intelligent SUV, the honor goes to the DFSK Glory 580 Pro, an intelligent 7-seat CUV with 100 voice commands, including 28 that are particularly suited for Pakistan. Furthermore, the car has already been in the hands of Pakistani clients for almost a year.

Furthermore, as automakers in Pakistan are already in the process of announcing updated pricing, the impact of the current tariffs and taxes imposed by the government in the recently approved supplementary finance bill is likely to be felt on both Saga and X70. Al-Haj Proton, on the other hand, has yet to release new prices for its models.

Pak Suzuki May Debut the New Swift Next Month


Those who buy electric vehicles get rid of petrol or diesel as well as mobile oil and filter replacement. Expenses on petrol and diesel can be said to be cost saving, but their real advantage is that their silencer does not emit any kind of smoke but it does not have silencer at all.

People can charge at home at night easily go to work tomorrow and it will be pollution free and it will be quite fast because electric cars deliver power at any rpm and they will be less maintenance then any petrol or diesel cars.

Amir Hussain, CEO of Gogo Motors, a subsidiary of Tesla Motors, has revealed that his company has completed the installation of electric chargers and now Pakistanis can travel on any electric car from Peshawar to Rahim Yar Khan. ۔

Charging stations have been installed in Islamabad, Peshawar, Bhairah, Pindi Bhattian, Abdul Hakim and Multan and a charger will be installed in Faisalabad in the same month.

Pak Suzuki May Debut the New Swift Next Month

January 18, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan

Pak Suzuki is expected to unveil the new Swift next month, after a ten-year hiatus. Suzuki will launch the Swift in Pakistan with a 1250cc K12C twin jet inline-4 engine mated to a 5-speed CVT or manual transmission, according to trustworthy sources.
Despite the fact that the Swift, like the rest of the globe, has a 1000cc turbo engine, Pakistan looks to be getting the 1250CC variant.

Furthermore, the Swift formerly had a displacement of 1395cc, and owners were required to pay a higher token tax, which had an effect on sales to some extent. Because of the decreased tax rate, customers in Pakistan will now benefit from the 1250cc engine displacement.


According to rumours, the hatchback would cost between Rs. 2.7 million and Rs. 2.8 million. Furthermore, most Pakistanis prefer sedans to hatchbacks since sedans offer larger trunk space.

However, in order to demonstrate that the new Swift is a valuable addition to the local market, it must be priced competitively. Pak Suzuki is certain, according to insiders, that the new Swift would be warmly accepted by local car purchasers.

According to Profit, Pak Suzuki spent Rs 4.5 billion on capital expenditures in the first nine months of calendar year 2021, up 5.7 times year on year. Capex (Capital Expenditure) refers to monies used by businesses to update and maintain physical assets such as plants and buildings, as well as to support new initiatives and investments. The greater capex indicates at Pak Suzuki’s plans to replace the 2nd generation Swift in our market with the 4th generation model, as previously stated.

The First Locally Assembled Peugeot 2008 SUV in Pakistan Has Showed up

The First Locally Assembled Peugeot 2008 SUV in Pakistan Has Showed up

January 7, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan

Peugeot Pakistan appears to be on the verge of making its much-anticipated debut, as a new social media video shows the first batch of its 2008 SUVs moving off the local assembly plant in Port Qasim, Karachi.


Peugeot History

The Peugeot 2008 is a subcompact crossover SUV built by Stellantis, a French automaker.
In 2013, it was initially launched to the worldwide market. It had a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four engine with a six-speed automated transmission. Depending on the engine size, it also came with a five-speed manual or a six-speed manual transmission.

In 2016, it underwent a makeover, and in 2017, it was upgraded to a six-speed automated transmission (1.2 turbo petrol) The Peugeot 2008 is a subcompact crossover SUV that competes with the Kia Stonic, MG ZS, Proton X50, and DFSK Glory 500 SUV.


Peugeot will make its debut in Pakistan in collaboration with Lucky Motor Corporation (LMC), the same business that brought Kia Motors back to Pakistan. The latter was introduced in 2019 and has proven to be the most successful newcomer in the Pakistani automobile sector.

For the last few months, since the latest spotting of a wrapped Peugeot 2008 SUV in Pakistan, rumors’ of its forthcoming introduction have been circulating. Peugeot appears to be on track for a debut early next year, according on the latest videos of the SUVs’ lining-off ceremony.

There are presently no price specifics for the car in Pakistan, but it is expected that LMC would pitch the Peugeot brand as a high-end option to Kia, implying that the 2008 might cost anywhere between Rs. 4.3 million and Rs. 4.8 million.

Despite the expensive price, given the Peugeot SUV’s features, aesthetics, and performance, it is anticipated to become one of the most popular vehicles among Pakistan’s high-end automobile customers.

Toyota has Grabbed the Most Prestigious Award from General Motors 90 years later.

Toyota has Grabbed the Most Prestigious Award from General Motors 90 years later.

January 6, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News Global

Ninety years later, the Japanese carmaker Toyota has snatched the title of the largest car manufacturer in the United States from the American company General Motors or GM.

Toyota Motor Corporation has overcome General Motors to win the best-seller title in the United States for 2021, a title it had held since 1931, or 90 years. Last year, Toyota sold 2.332 million automobiles in the United States, while General Motors ended the year with 2.218 million units sold.

  • Last year, Toyota sold 2.332 million automobiles in the United States, while General Motors ended the year with 2.218 million units sold.
  • GM predicts increased economic development in the United States to improve overall light-duty vehicle sector sales from roughly 15 million in 2021 to around 16 million in 2022.

Toyota Motor Corporation has overcome General Motors to win the best-seller title in the United States for 2021, a title it had held since 1931, or 90 years. Last year, Toyota sold 2.332 million automobiles in the United States, while General Motors ended the year with 2.218 million units sold.

In 2020, GM sold 2.55 million vehicles in the United States, compared to 2.11 million for Toyota and 2.04 million for Ford. Last year, most OEMs’ production was hampered by a lack of semiconductors, which forced them to concentrate on their most profitable models.

GM predicts increased economic development in the United States to improve overall light-duty vehicle sector sales from roughly 15 million in 2021 to around 16 million in 2022. According to industry newspaper Automotive News, the manufacturer has been the country’s leading seller of automobiles since 1931, when it surpassed Ford.

Toyota, on the other hand, does not believe it is a viable ambition to maintain its sales lead in the United States in the future years, and has no plans to publicize the achievement in any way, according to the company’s Senior Vice President Jack Hollis.

“We appreciate our loyal clients,” he said, “but being No. 1 is never a focus or goal.” Analysts commended Toyota for surviving the chip scarcity better than other manufacturers, resulting in higher sales than the prior year.

MERCEDES-BENZ PRESENTS THE EQXX ELECTRIC CONCEPT CAR, WHICH IS SPORTY AND ULTRA-LONG-RANGE.

MERCEDES-BENZ PRESENTS THE EQXX ELECTRIC CONCEPT CAR, WHICH IS SPORTY AND ULTRA-LONG-RANGE.

January 5, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the Vision EQXX, a solar-powered concept car capable of travelling over 1,000 kilometres (648 miles) on a single charge.

According to the German carmaker, increased aerodynamics and battery efficiency allow for a range of 1,000 kilometer’s.

On a single charge, the Vision EQXX can go from New York City to Cincinnati, Berlin to Paris, or Beijing to Nanjing. In comparison to other long-range EVs on the road today, such as the Lucid Air (520 miles) and Tesla Model S Long Range Plus, it’s outstanding (402 miles). Unlike other cars, however, the Vision EQXX is only a concept with no intentions for mass manufacture. (For the time being.)


GALLERY:


Mercedes-Benz eventually presented the automobile (virtually) at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, after weeks of teasing. (Due to an increase in COVID-19 instances, Mercedes, like most of the large firms, abandoned its intentions to attend CES in person.)

The Vision EQXX will most likely serve as the foundation for a production car that will compete with other premium electric vehicles such as the Porsche Taycan, Audi E-tron GT, and Tesla Roadster, thanks to its sporting goals and sleek, futuristic style.

The Vision EQXX, on the other hand, is said to be more based in reality. The business states that their range estimates were based on a simulation of real-world traffic circumstances, implying that it will burn energy at a rate of 10kWh every 100 kilometers, or more than 6 miles per kWh. In terms of fossil-fuel use, this equates to about 235 miles per gallon in the United States, or 1 liter of gasoline every 100 kilometers.


INTERIOR:


A range estimate is, after all, just that: a guess. Any EV range will be certified separately by the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States, as well as Europe’s Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The majority of electric vehicles on the market now have a range of 200-300 miles, with some older versions having less. The current generation of electric vehicles has a range of 250-300 kilometers.

EV range is, of course, quite subjective. Even the EPA’s grading system is only intended to provide a snapshot of the agency’s testing procedure under specified conditions. It usually ignores things like hard hill climbing and the impacts of cold weather, which may deplete a vehicle’s battery far more quickly than driving on level roads or in warmer weather.

The 117 solar cells put in the vehicle’s roof will assist the Vision EQXX. The solar roof, which was developed in partnership with Europe’s leading solar energy research center, is designed to counteract the high-voltage system’s energy drain while simultaneously extending its range. According to Mercedes, the solar cells may add up to 25 kilometers of range to long-distance trips in a single day under perfect conditions.
