Is Faw v2 Discontinued !! In Pakistan
September 21, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan
Dealers claim that the FAW V2 has been discontinued in Pakistan.
While the firm has not publicly stated that the model would be phased out, its approved dealerships in the country have told Business Recorder that they are no longer accepting new bookings for the FAW V2 according to company directives.
The move, according to a dealer, was motivated by a number of factors, including low sales data.
Last year, sales of the 1,300cc car fell, and the launch of Proton further reduced revenue from the FAW V2 portfolio.
The Al-Haj Automotive Group launched the FAW V2 in Pakistan in 2014 as a less expensive alternative to the Suzuki Swift. The hatchback had a 1300cc engine that produced 90 horsepower and 120 Nm of torque and was connected to a 5-speed manual transmission at the time.
Company not accepting new bookings
The firm began producing it domestically within three years. However, you can no longer reserve a car. It has been reported on the market that it has been discontinued.
“Its sales decreased considerably,” the firm says, avoiding disclosing that the V2 has been withdrawn. However, the major cause is that component manufacture in China has ceased. It has also been phased out in South Africa, where right-hand drive automobiles are used in the same way as in Pakistan.”
Last year, however, the FAW V2’s price increased multiple times to Rs. 1.61 million, making the car no longer a cheap choice for customers. However, it should be noted that the competition was still more costly, since other Pakistani automakers increased their prices.
Despite the fact that the V2 was nothing out of the usual and had its own set of problems, the firm did pay attention to customer complaints and did its best to address them, such as recognized gear difficulties and cabin wind noise.
