DFSK And GWM Prices Increased in Pakistan
After the rapid decline of the rupee in comparison to the US dollar, car manufacturers were bound to increase the prices of their cars in Pakistan. Since most automotive parts are imported, the massive fall of the rupee meant that the increase in prices had to be massive as well.
Therefore, we saw the greatest increase in the prices of Toyota, Honda, and Suzuki. Lastly, DFSK and GWM increased the prices of their cars as well. Both these companies will start charging new prices to their customers starting from the 1st of August.
Prince Pearl Prices:
Prince Pearl is the most affordable new car in Pakistan. The 800 cc Hatchback witnessed a price increase of Rs. 386,000, going from Rs. 1,534,000 to Rs. 1,920,000. So now, the most affordable car in Pakistan with air conditioning is worth Rs. 1,920,000.
