Master Changan Motors Limited (MCML) has also announced a significant increase in the pricing of all cars, so a wave of price increases is currently in full force throughout Pakistan.
Like other automakers, MCML has attributed the increase to factors like as the rupee’s decline versus the US dollar, rising freight costs, and increases in the cost of raw materials and operating expenses.
The following new Changan vehicle prices are effective immediately:
|Models||Old Price (Rs.)||Revised Price (Rs.)||Increase (Rs.)|
|Alsvin 1.37 Comfort Manual||2,894,000||3,394,000||500,000|
|Alsvin 1.5 Comfort DCT||3,149,000||3,659,000||500,000|
|Alsvin 1.5 Lumiere DCT||3,344,000||3,844,000||500,000|
|Oshan X7 Comfort||6,050,000||7,449,000||1,399,000|
|Oshan X7 FutureSense||6,350,000||7,749,000||1,399,000|
|Karvaan Plus MPV||2,219,000||2,619,000||400,000|
This is the fourth price increase for MCML in 2022. The first increase appeared in January as a result of extra charges and taxes that the government imposed in the mini-budget.
The revised prices will probably have an effect on MCML’s sales. With the Lumiere variant’s price now approaching Rs. 4 million, the best-selling Alsvin no longer appeals to sedan consumers on a tight budget. It is still one of Pakistan’s most affordable choices for subcompact cars, nevertheless.
