When will Indus Prius Hybrid Introduced in Pakistan?
Indus Motors intend to release this car to the showrooms during the third quarter of the year 2013. July the 1st will be the start of the new quarter. So as soon as the third quarter starts, we should expect the introduction of Indus Prius Hybrid any moment in Pakistan. If Government of Pakistan is unable to finalize their strategy regarding the implementation of duty on these cars, the company might delay the introduction of Prius Hybrid. If duty is not imposed, then a major drop in price is expected.
Global Popularity of Toyota Prius
It is a fact that attitude of people all around the world towards hybrid cars is very positive. Not only it is fuel efficient but it is environment friendly as well. Toyota Prius is one of the few cars that have been released early when hybrid cars were new in the market and has been appreciated by the people. Celebrities acquired this car in order to show people that they care about the planet and this car has its own place among hybrid cars currently present in the market.
Full Warranty on Imported Hybrid Cars from Toyota Indus
Babar S. Khan who is heading the Corporate Planning department for Indus Motors has revealed that the company has finished the testing phase for Toyota Prius Hybrid keeping in view the driving environment in Pakistan. He expressed the views that Pakistani Toyota customers will now be able to purchase imported and new hybrid cars in Pakistan and company will be providing them with full warranty.
Factors Affecting the Price of Toyota Hybrid in Pakistan
Babar S. Khan mentioned that price of Toyota Hybrid in Pakistan will depend on policy of Government of Pakistan. Last Government reduced the duty on Hybrid cars by 25%. New Government is formed in Pakistan earlier this week. It has been indicated in new Government’s policies that complete exemption of duty on Hybrid cars imported in Pakistan might be considered in order to control the on-going energy crisis in the country. So price of Toyota Hybrid cars in Pakistan really is dependent upon the structure of duty imposed on cars by the Government.
