Mehran is actually a derailed “variant” of the Suzuki Alto. You may be familiar with this, especially the very popular Japanese imports these days.
The Euro II model was introduced in 2013, but the only notable difference is the use of an electronic fuel injection system to replace the now obsolete carburetor found in pre-2012 models. Despite being discontinued, this car was still in great demand. September 2018 Pack Suzuki sold 47,199 units in Japan.
Pak Suzuki discontinued production of Mehran in March 2019 and adopted the 8th generation Alto (HA36S), which was released as the New Alto in the latter half of the same year.
Pak Suzuki Motors Company Limited (PSMCL) announced on September 5 that it will discontinue production of the Mehran SB-308 VXR, but did not announce a replacement.
It’s a replacement for Suzuki FX, and since then the company hasn’t completely changed the look, it’s just made a look change to the model. In 2012, PSMCL upgraded all vehicles, including Mehran, to Euro II technology.
The production of Mehran in 1995-96 was 8,966, and in 2016-17 it was 38,311. Over the last 30 years, this model has achieved 72% localization compared to other locally assembled vehicles. PSMCL will continue the Mehran with the new Alto 660cc and will cause the car to die of natural causes over time.
The popularity and success of top brand cars does not really depend on their modernity, innovation, fairness, or even their perceived potential, because they are competitive.
At this point, Suzuki updated Alto’s design, introduced several performance options, and was readily available on multi-valve and turbocharged engines. In 1984, another all-wheel drive variation called the CC71 was launched. Originally released as a 3-door hatchback, Suzuki released a 5-door version. This particular generation was popular all over the world and was considered a very economical car.
Mehran costs rupees. 6-7.5 does not have basic safety features such as airbags and ABS. There isn’t even a rear window heater.
