Master Changan Motors has launched a gem in Pakistani Automobile Industry. Pakistan is going to witness the first Euro-5 Smart sedan car on its roads now.
Changan Motors, owned by a Chinese automobile manufacturer is all set to unroll their state-of-the-art sedan car named “Alsvin” in Pakistan. This company will operate with a local brand “Master” on a partnership. Master has earlier established a $100 million auto manufacturing plant in Karachi, Pakistan.
The auto manufacturing plant established by Master possesses the capability to manufacture 30,000 units every year. Currently, Changan is having 17 dealerships in Pakistan from which 11 are in Punjab, 1 in KPK, 4 in Sindh and 1 in Balochistan.
Alsvin has three variants: 1.37L base model with 5-speed manual transmission, 1.5L Comfort Model with 5-speed dual-clutch transmission and the last one 1.5L Lumiere with 5-speed dual-clutch transmission. With this engine, Alsvin will challenge the monopoly of Pakistani auto sector’s Big Three i.e. Honda City, Toyota Corolla and Yaris, and Suzuki Ciaz.
From the last few years, Pakistani auto sector is witnessing a humongous change in the preference of purchasers. The mindset of Pakistani purchasers is rapidly changing and they have started to purchase the cars and SUV’s of other brands too. So, the competition here is becoming fierce with the entrance of multiple brands.
