According to sources, Chinese passenger car ‘Chery’ is going to be released in Pakistan later this year. The car is being brought to Pakistan by the Lahore based company, United Auto Industries. They are the manufacturer of United Bravo car and United Motorcycle Company. United Motorcycle has also been stated as Pakistan’s No.1 national brand.
The variants is a 1000cc passenger car expected to be available in both manual and automatic transmission. The car will come in CBU condition and then locally assembled.
This is not the first time Chery is being introduced in Pakistan. The first generation Chery QQ was introduced back in 2003. However, soon after it’s released the car importer could not manage for spare parts and after sales services as they were purely traders.
However even then the car remained in production for 10 years (2003-2012). The Cherry QQ was available in 4 variants namely 0.8 MT, 1.1 MT, 1.1 AMT and 1.0 MT.
Chery is going to be the fourth Chinese car that is going to be introduced in the Pakistani market. The first one being FAW V2, then United Bravo were introduced and then‘Price Pearl.’ Pearl was launched by Regal Automobiles in January 31st, 2020. The launching price of the car was PKR 1,049,000, however with fluctuating dollar price it was increased to PKR 1,149,000.
With Covid-19 ending things are finally returning to normal. There couldn’t have been a more perfect launch time. However, we can only guess how the car will perform once we know the car details and the price tag of the car. We cannot guess the prices at this stage let’s hope for the best.
