March 28, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
The Hyundai Tucson also sees a significant price increase. Hyundai Nishat Motors Private Limited (HNMPL) has revised the prices of the Hyundai Tucson, joining the price hike bandwagon. In barely over two months, the firm has raised its prices for the second time.
The following are the pricing for both Hyundai Tucson models, which are effective immediately:
Old Price (PKR)
Revised Price (PKR)
Tucson GLS Sport FWD
Tucson Ultimate AWD
CALL FOR ON ROAD PRICE
HNMPL, like its competitors, blamed the increase on increased raw material costs, freight charges, the depreciation of the local currency, and other logistical issues.
Unlike other manufacturers, however, HNMPL has only applied the increased costs to bookings made after the price hike was announced. Those who booked before March 25, 2022, will be charged the old rate.
Hyundai, on the other hand, has merely upped the price of the Tucson. It’s worth mentioning that the SUV was HNMPL’s best-selling car in February 2022, selling approximately 800 units in the month.

President Empowers Suzuki Customers to Get a Refund Of Up to 12% Of Their Sales Tax Overpayment
March 17, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News Pakistan
President Arif Alvi has supported the Federal Tax Ombudsman’s (FTO) decision to refund more than 12.5 percent of sales tax collected from Suzuki car customers.
Pak Suzuki was sued under Section 10(1) of the Federal Tax Ombudsman Ordinance, 2000 (FTO Ordinance) for collecting 17 percent sales tax on 998cc automobiles in August 2021, despite the fact that the real rate at the time was 12.5 percent. As a result, taxpayers were compelled to pay more than was truly owed.
The judgement was confirmed by Pakistan’s President, who dismissed FBR’s appeals against the return suggestion. FTO Dr Asif Mahmood Jah, speaking during a press conference, said:
“The President’s directive will assist customers around the country who paid an excessive amount of Sales Tax from Suzuki car purchasers.”
The complainants ordered 998cc automobiles in advance of June 2021, paying a total of Rs 2.145 million in advance, with an estimated delivery date of July 2021. Meanwhile, by the Finance Act of 2021, the rate of Sales Tax on such automobiles was reduced from 17 percent to 12.5 percent, and the FED charged at 2.5 percent was abolished entirely, with effect from July 1, 2021. Furthermore, the word “time of supply” was changed from “time of sale” to “time of delivery” in Section 2(44) of the Sales Tax Act of 1990.
The automobiles were delivered to the complainants together with an invoice for Rs 2.069 million, which reflected the revised rate in effect after July 2021, rather than the rate in effect when the car was booked in June 2021. However, the firm assessed Sales Tax on the previous rates rather than the invoice date “the time of sale” and refused to refund the difference, denying Middle-Income Complainants the full benefit of the lower tax burden. The complaint also contacted FBR through email on its hotline, asking a reimbursement of the difference in sales tax.
The FBR responded by sending an email stating that sales tax on automobiles up to 1000cc had been decreased to 12.5 percent. However, the FBR did not fix the matter by arranging for a reimbursement of the sales tax difference. According to the FBR:
“At the time of reserving the car in June 2021 and its delivery in August 2021, there was a lack of clarity on the term of “time of supply.” The appropriate period for establishing the rate of taxes was when payment was received by the provider, according to the definition in June 2021, when Sales Tax was 17 percent and FED was 2.5 percent. However, in the budget 2022-2023, both the definition and the applicable tax rates were changed, and now “supply of goods, other than under hire purchase agreement, means the time at which the goods are delivered or made available to the recipient of the supply” means “the time at which the goods are delivered or made available to the recipient of the supply.”
Despite the fact that the act’s amendments were meant to assist taxpayers, the objections were dismissed. The Federal Tax Ombudsman has issued instructions to all advisors to decide all similar cases in accordance with a decision by the President of Pakistan, and FTO hopes that the Federal Bureau of Revenue will ensure prompt compliance with the President’s directives, as the decision has a far-reaching impact by providing relief to not only the complaints but many others who may not have so far opted for such relief, FTO added.
In Pakistan, Honda’s 11th-Generation Civic 2022 Makes Its Debut
March 3, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan
Honda Atlas Cars Limited (HACL) has officially released the all-new Civic in Pakistan, making the small sedan category in Pakistan significantly more intriguing.
The new Civic was also unveiled in a digital launch, presented by Aamir H. Shirazi, President of Atlas Group, Hironobu Yoshimura, CEO of HACL, and Aamir Nazir, General Manager Sales and Marketing at HACL, who informed the audience about the vehicle’s numerous features.
Unlike the 6th generation Honda City, which was released last year, the 11th-generation Civic is the most recent model on the market, and it outperforms its competitors, such as the Toyota Corolla and Hyundai, in terms of performance and amenities. Even if it comes at a hefty price.
When it comes to style, the new Honda Civic is more conservative than its predecessor, which is a good thing.
With a large bumper grille in the middle and a streamlined primary grille between the headlights, the front end appears dignified but intimidating. The bright Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) on the newly styled headlights contribute to the intimidating appearance. The overall refinement is enhanced by the lengthened and straightened-out bonnet design.
Along the length of the vehicle, the side profile exhibits clean and basic lines. The 2017 Civic comes with 17-inch black alloy rims (16-inch in basic and mid-level models) in Pakistan, which are more appealing than previous generations.
The ‘European design influence’ is most visible towards the back end. The car’s angular and sharp taillights, straightened-out boot lid, high-up bumper reflectors, center trim down below, and dual oval exhaust tips (in the top grade only) give it a sporty appeal.
Interior Design :
The inside of the 11th-generation Civic has been completely redesigned by Honda. The inside has a luxury vibe thanks to a simple dashboard design, silver trim elements throughout the cabin, and ambient lighting. The premium variant’s inside is black with red stitching, while the base and mid-level models’ interiors are dark grey.
It sports a huge 9-inch infotainment screen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto on the top. The lowest models have soft fabric upholstery, while the premium models have leather upholstery.
The 2018 Honda Civic will be available in three different models. A turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 127 horsepower (hp) and 180 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque will power the base and mid-level models, which will be coupled to an M-CVT automatic gearbox.
The top-of-the-line model also has a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with 176 horsepower and 220 Nm of torque, as well as an LL-CVT automatic transmission.
It has McPherson struts in the front and multi-link coil springs in the rear. It also has disc brakes on all four wheels, as well as an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), and Brake Assist (BA) system for good stopping power.
According to auto-data.net, the new Civic has a worldwide fuel economy of 14 liters per kilometer; however, values in Pakistan are likely to differ. The new Civic will also be the quickest, most thrilling, and capable vehicle in the country, with a power-to-weight ratio (PWR) of roughly 0.35 hp/kg.

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.)
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.
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.

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.
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.
