Renault cars in Pakistan Expected price, and models

Finally, some exciting news goes around in Pakistan about Renault French Company and Dubai all Futtaim recently signed a Mou with Renault to assemble and launch in Pakistan at a production site of faisalabad city in punjab.

Renault expected launch cars in Pakistan

According to Renault pakistan, the assembly plant starts too built Q4 of 2018 with an expectation of assembly production commence at the start of 2020.

Renault expected date of launch in 2020 but can launch some models by importing before starts an assembly to be able to look up the initial market reaction.

However, resources told that Renault target 1200cc to 1500cc range in the market, as people know in Pakistan car market, Toyota expecting to discontinue their 1.3 GLI and XLI with the replacement of 1500cc in coming expected years which would cost around between 2.0million to 2.4million.

Renault stated that it will launch 1500cc cars within the range of 2.4million with full features that failed by the Toyota and Honda in the past years.

If we look apart from stated announcement what existing models there that could compete against Japanese rivals,

Here are some Renault famous cars.

  1. Kwid
  2. Duster
  3. Captor
  4. Lody

Renault have so many others cars apart from these .but we took neighboring India to suggest close to the Renault expected launch of Renault cars in Pakistan, some people thinking of why choose India, Indian market is very similar to Pakistani market, therefore, any model success in neighboring countries may have a very good chance to get the same success in Pakistani market.

Indian people have many other options unlike Pakistan stick to three Japanese companies, Renault is getting a good result in India among many competitors, therefore, its a highly likely that Renault gets a market share in Pakistan where only a few competitors there.

In addition Pakistani people desperate for a new car manufacturer to launch In Pakistan to be able to move from these Japanese cars, from past 10 years Pakistani liked more Japanese imported cars than home-based assembled cars due to having more quality, features and price.

So if we considered all above factors I think Renault took a very good move to enter in Pakistan.

What models would be best to suite in Pakistan among four of these?

Renault Kwid

Launched at 800cc and 1000cc engine with 6 variants including features as well in India.

Renault kwid price:

In India, the kwid price starts from 0.273 million and goes up to 0.5miilion.

Renault Kwid expected price in Pakistan 2018:(Import Version)

Let’s assume kwid with 800cc at a starting Indian price of 0.273 million launch in Pakistan to compete against Suzuki Mehran.

In Pakistan that car can cost up to 0.8 to 0.9million Pak rupees, it includes currency conversion and duty tariff in Pakistan.

Renault all over the world not famous for their products like Volkswagen, Mazda, and Nissan.

A, however, the situation in Pakistan different from the world market the 2017 Suzuki Mehran use old features and technology which was obsolete long time ago in world market, but here in Pakistan still on the market due to no competition at all.

People are fed up with this but couldn’t resist due to have nothing option available in the same price, in addition, Mehran is cash value product can be sale easily anywhere in Pakistan.

To be successful in Pakistan Renault must have to launch this model at a similar price of Mehran or lower than Mehran which I think impossible for Renault due to many reasons.

Kwid base model doesn’t include any power windows, engine start button, airbag, music system nor even air conditioner just like Mehran.

The second option to launch at the 1000cc engine to compete against Suzuki Cultus(celerio), I would think it’s better for Renault to offer at 1000cc to remain in a market in terms of price and features.

Top kwid model includes navigation, touch screen, airbag and power windows.

Market Expectation of Renault cars in Pakistan.

If duster launch in Pakistan it can cost the consumer more than 3.0million and in this price, not everyone can afford this car, Renault team and decision maker did research and well aware of the Pakistani market about what market they have to target so leave with them.

However Renault duster comes with All wheel and 2 wheel drive with so many features like Suzuki vitara.
