Master Changan Motors Restricted (MCML) is still juggling a high demand for Alsvin with a limited supply. Due to a shortage of Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kits from China, the business had to suspend bookings for their most popular vehicle.

However, in a recent encouraging development, MCML has reopened Alsvin bookings across Pakistan. According to a credible source, the corporation will only accept reservations for a restricted number of automobiles.

The corporation has given each dealership a “extremely minimal” monthly delivery target, according to the source. He noted that the bulk of units in that quota had already been booked a month previously, implying that each new dealership will only accept a few new bookings before suspending them the next day.

Within 1.5 years of its start, MCML celebrated the delivery of the 10,000th Alsvin unit. To commemorate the event, the manufacturer is offering a 5-year/150,000-kilometer (whichever comes first) extended warranty on Alsvin purchases.

Despite recent price increases, MCML continues to enjoy robust demand for Alsvin as a result of its superior value offer compared to its competitors.

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.


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.


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

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.

Changan Pakistan has hiked the price of their cars by Rs120,000.

Changan Pakistan has hiked the price of their cars by Rs120,000.

August 26, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

Changan Pakistan has hiked rates throughout its whole portfolio by Rs120,000, just a month after lowering prices. The company cited rising freight and delivery costs as the reason for the rise.

After announcing the Alsvin sedan’s debut price in January, the Chinese automaker raised the price of its two automatic models by up to Rs101,000 barely two months later in March.

Changan was one of the last automakers to lower automobile prices in July, following the government’s announcement of different incentives. The new policies were designed to relieve the load on the general public, stimulate vehicle sales, and encourage local businesses. Reduced sales tax and extra customs charge were among the numerous incentives given.

The firm told its authorised dealerships on Tuesday that all of its vehicles will be sold at reduced rates, according to a circular published on Tuesday. The Covid-19 has resulted in increased freight charges and total shipment costs, according to the report.



The circular continued, “The firm has no alternative but to pass on part of the increased costs to the product price,” and asked dealers to explain the situation to customers.

According to the notice, all Alsvin versions have witnessed a price increase of Rs120,000. Alsvin 1.3 M/T is now available at a lower price of Rs2,269,000, down from Rs2,149,000. Similarly, the price of the Alsvin 1.3 DCT has increased to Rs2,519,000 from Rs2,399,000 previously. Alsvin Lumiere 1.5 DCT is now priced at Rs2,709,000, up from Rs2,589,000 before. Karvaan and Karvaan plus would now cost Rs1,519,000 and Rs1,659,000, respectively, after a Rs120,000 price increase.
Similarly, the Changan M9’s price has increased from Rs1.234,000 to Rs1,354,000.

Ateeq Ur Rehman, an economic and financial analyst, has claimed that freight rates by road, air, and sea are becoming more expensive with each passing day, emphasizing that competition is raising the cost of doing business for both importers and exporters.

The Good News is that after 850cc, 1000cc cars are becoming more affordable as well.

The Good News is that after 850cc, 1000cc cars are becoming more affordable as well.

June 27, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

The federal government made vehicles with engines up to 850cc cheaper earlier this month by eliminating the Federal Excise Duty (FED) and lowering the Sales Tax to 12.5 percent from 17 percent. Everyone was ecstatic when they heard the news. Despite this, many people preferred to hear the phrase 1000cc instead than 850cc.

So, what’s this? The government has complied with our request. Shaukat Tarin, the Finance Minister, has announced the continuation of tax exemption for automobiles up to 1000cc, making all domestically built 1000cc cars cheaper.

What Will be the impact these Cars are Getting Cheaper

Because the middle class can only afford automobiles up to 1000cc, this tax relief will undoubtedly have a big influence on the local automotive market. The government has lowered automobile costs in a budget for the first time in Pakistan’s history.

Consumer purchasing power will rise as a result of the effort, as will automobile sales in the country. The government, on the other hand, has not proposed any tax relief for imported automobiles, indicating that it is focused on the domestic auto sector and encouraging people to buy local vehicles.

What are your thoughts on this news? On a scale of one to ten, how pleased are you with this big tax cut? Let us know what you think in the comments area.

When Will Automobiles Become More Affordable to Consumers?

Okay, so the government has enacted the Fiscal Budget 2021-22, which includes lower taxes on automobiles with engines under 1000cc. But the real question is when prices will start to fall. And the response is July 1st, 2021.

The budget has been considered and approved by the government in the National Assembly. It will be deployed in the beginning of next month. From July 1st onwards, the revised pricing will be in effect.

In the meanwhile, customers who get automobiles this month will be charged the existing price. If the invoice for the car has been issued, the buyer must pay the current price. There’s no getting around it.
