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.

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.

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.

The Spectacular Arrival of Oshan-X7 Plus SUV

The Spectacular Arrival of Oshan-X7 Plus SUV

December 29, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan

In Pakistan, Master Changan will introduce the Oshan X7 Plus SUV.

Oshan X7 Plus’s explosive entry against “Fortune” and “Sorrento”

Compared to Oshan X7, “Oshan X7 Plus” looks like a bigger and more powerful vehicle. Right hand drive vehicles will also be manufactured and sold in Pakistan.

Last month, Master Changan Motors Limited (MCML) released several designs of an SUV without revealing its name. However, it became clear that the firm is planning to introduce a new SUV. Finally, the Oshan X7 Plus, the company’s latest product, has been revealed.


Gallery


The Oshan X7 Plus appears to be a more substantial version of the Oshan X7. This SUV will compete with the Toyota Fortuner and the Kia Sorento 3rd Generation due to its overall attractiveness and size.

Pakistan will be the first market outside of China to receive the Oshan X7 Plus, according to the manufacturer. Master Changan also intends to export the RHD version of this SUV from Pakistan to other foreign markets.

The SUV will most likely be available in 5- and 7-seat configurations. It will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine from Changan’s newest blue whale series, which generates 178 horsepower and 300 Nm torque and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 8.23 seconds.

Changan also boasts that this beefed-up SUV would have an incredible 14 kilometres per litre in fuel economy. This is comparable to the average fuel consumption of other basic sedans. Other cars being tested by the business include the Hunter double cabin and the UNI-T crossover, both of which are expected to be released in the near future.

The pricing of the Changan Oshan X7 Plus, however, has yet to be revealed. Given its cutting-edge style and features, it’s safe to assume that this SUV will come with a premium price tag.

With a slew of new SUVs set to hit the market in 2021, Pakistan’s SUV market is booming. It would be interesting to see how Changan’s new product does in Pakistan.

Pakistan is Adopting a new law that will Soon Make Cars Without Airbags Illegal.

Pakistan is Adopting a new law that will Soon Make Cars Without Airbags Illegal.

December 28, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan

The most popular automobiles in Pakistan lack a key safety feature: Airbags.

The federal cabinet has approved the Automotive Industry Development and Export Plan (AIDEP) 2021-2026, which would safeguard Pakistan’s automotive industry’s safety and development.

From June 30, 2022, all automobiles must comply with the WP.29 set of safety rules, or car manufactures will be prohibited from selling them.

Honda’s best-selling car, the City, lacks the safety function. The top-of-the-line vehicle costs Rs2.86 million. Honda comes in third place in terms of vehicle sales, after only Suzuki and Toyota.

The Changan Karvaan minivan, which is in the same category as the APV, does not have airbags.

The Engineering Development Board, the auto industry’s governing organization, was ordered by the Lahore High Court in February to guarantee that vehicle producers manufacture automobiles with airbags.

Automobiles that are deficient in basic safety features:

  • Suzuki Cultus (VXR)
  • Suzuki Alto (VX)
  • Suzuki Ravi
  • Suzuki Wagon R (VXR)
  • Suzuki Wagon R (VXL)
  • Suzuki Bolan
  • Changan Karvaan
  • United Alpha
  • United Bravo

Why are airbags important?

Airbags are meant to reduce the severity of an accident. According to research, those without airbags are more likely to suffer serious injuries. This is why they are regarded as a significant characteristic all over the world.

Airbags, on the other hand, are most effective when used in conjunction with seat belts.

It remains to be seen if automakers will adhere to these safety criteria in future models, given the considerably larger risks. However, it may take some time for firms to properly apply these restrictions, but it is unquestionably a positive move.

The group, which represents automobile makers known as OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), has been given until March 10 to submit its proposal, according to Ayaz.

According to him, the EDB’s safety feature suggestions would be accepted in the future budget. Following that, automobile firms will be given notice to execute them, including the installation of airbags.

According to reports, PAMA Chairperson Ali Asghar Jamali believes that installing airbags in automobiles will raise car costs in the nation. Jamali is also the President and Chief Executive Officer of IMC Toyota.
