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.

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.

The “GRONOS 2021” by MANSORY is based on the Mercedes G-Class.

June 25, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / Blogs Pakistan

The G-body Class’s style, which is fully painted in “British Racing Green,” is both aesthetically and technically stunning. The whole aerodynamic system has been overhauled. Starting with the front apron and moving on to the beautifully expanded front wings, widened doors, and finally the rear apron. All of these parts are composed entirely of carbon fibre and are accented with dark grey “Forged Carbon” coatings.

MANSORY GRONOS 2021 SPECIFICATIONS

Based on the Mercedes G-Class model G63, this is a complete vehicle modification.
“British Racing Green” was used for the whole paint job.
Applications of carbon in “Forged-Carbon”
There are just 10 of them available in the world.
Interior is finished in “Fawn Brown” full leather.
Increased horsepower and torque to 850 hp and 1.000 Nm.
Vmax: 250 km/h, 0-100 km in 3,5 seconds.

For many years, complete conversions based on the Mercedes G-Class have been an important element of automotive tuner Kourosh Mansory’s product range, and with countless conversions, one of the most successful.

Last year, MANSORY introduced two new items based on the Mercedes G-Class to fulfil the high expectations and specific requests of its clients. On the one hand, since the beginning of last year, the “Star Trooper Pickup” has been available in collaboration with designer and couturier PHILIPP PLEIN, and on the other, a completely independent special protection vehicle programmed (complementary to all G-Class conversions) has been developed, which follows the philosophy of “invisible armoring.”

And, after MANSORY unveiled a complete conversion called “GRONOS” for the first time in 2013, a new edition of this bestseller called “GRONOS 2021” will be released in the first quarter of 2021, which follows its forerunner in the original design philosophy, but has been adapted to the current “zeitgeist” and customer wishes through numerous detail modifications inside and out, thus keeping the G-Class utmost in luxury.

The “GRONOS 2021” in detail:

The G-body Class’s style, which is fully painted in “British Racing Green,” is both aesthetically and technically stunning. The whole aerodynamic system has been overhauled. Starting with the front apron and moving on to the beautifully expanded front wings, widened doors, and finally the rear apron. All of these parts are composed entirely of carbon fibre and are accented with dark grey “Forged Carbon” coatings.

The front portion is finished off with an ultra-light full carbon bonnet in unpainted “Forged Carbon” with extra cooling air vents at the front and sides. The two light-intensive extra headlights on the edge of the roof, as well as the double daytime running lights on both sides of the front apron, are also trimmed in carbon, and complete the overall image of the “GRONOS 2021” gracefully and harmoniously from the front. The spare wheel is also entirely coated in “Forged Carbon” at the back, and is – when combined with the newly styled rear apron – a stunning combination.

resulting in a pleasing result Numerous other “Forged Carbon” components, including as the indicator bases, door handle inserts, mirror housings, air intakes and outlets, offer further dramatic features and, when combined with the distinctive “British Racing Green” paint finish, make an incredibly attractive combination.

Performance:

The 4.0-litre V8 engine now has larger turbochargers, new left and right downpipes, a high-performance exhaust system, and a new engine control system. Instead of the 585 horsepower of the regular G63 AMG, this results in an astounding 850 hp. From 850 to 1.000 Nm, the maximum torque is increased. As a consequence, the sprint time from zero to 100 kilometers per hour has been reduced to just 3.5 seconds, and the peak speed has been boosted to (restricted) 250 kilometers per hour.

The luxury tuner Brand equips the “GRONOS 2021” with high-performance tyres in the size 295/30R24 all around to deliver this massive power to the road. They’re mounted on forged rims (type: “YN.5”) with a totally black finish and a 10×24 diameter.

And, as with all MANSORY full conversions, the interior design is no less luxurious as the unique appearance. The interior is finished entirely in “Fawn Brown” coloured leather and uses only the finest materials. A new leather-carbon sports steering wheel, an aluminum sports pedal, dark carbon inlays, and new leather inserts with 3D embossing for the seats, door inserts, and center armrest are just as appealing as the finely embroidered MANSORY emblem in the seats and floor mats. In contrast, the inside carpets are completely black.

This one-of-a-kind car will only be available to a select few. The magnificent off-road vehicle is available for pre-order now and is restricted to only 10 units globally.

The Haval duo’s bookings were restarted earlier last week with a Rs 200,000 rise in retail pricing, bringing the H6 to PKR 64.95 lakh and the Jolion to PKR 57.25 lac. According to reports, the firm is hesitant to accept a significant number of reservations owing to stock shortages, particularly due to worldwide supply chain difficulties.

It’s worth noting that Haval SUVs will be accessible as CBUs for the time being, as local assembly at the factory has yet to begin..

In an earlier statement, the business stated that it did not want to harm its image with consumers by continuing to accept bookings despite supply chain issues, which might cause clients to wait months for their vehicles to arrive. Haval has taken the same move once again, which is expected to strengthen its reputation among consumers in Pakistan as a trustworthy and transparent carmaker.
