Altnernatives are on the way
The announcement of Mehran going away had many people disappointed because it was the only vehicle in Pakistan that could be bought for under 10 lakh rupees.
However, the good news is that alternatives in the same price range are going to soon arrive in the auto market of Pakistan with better features.
One of the biggest and most popular Mehran alternatives which are nearing its launch is the United Bravo.
Apart from the Bravo, Kia, Renault, and Hyundai are also eyeing this price category with new vehicles of their own.
Even Suzuki is planning to replace its Mehran variants with the Suzuki Alto vehicles which it plans to sell in the same price category as Mehran.
