This time again, it has come up with yet another great assembly of parts, which it has named as Toyota Corolla Cross.

It is huge news, which will give a much-needed boost to the automobile manufacturing industry in Pakistan.
Price Range of Locally Assembled Corolla Cross
The pricing of this locally assembled Corolla Cross is very nominal! It’s very likely to come within the budget of many car enthusiasts. All the information regarding the possible prices comes directly from the CEO of Indus motors company, Mr. Ali Asghar Jamali.
The CEO said that the price of this locally assembled Toyota Corolla Cross would be somewhere between five million rupees to seven million rupees. This is the range that prospective car buyers should expect now. However, later, if there are any changes due to the increased taxes by the government on automobiles, this price can surely increase. The parts that the manufacturers use in the car are local. If the cost of the raw material increases, it may also directly affect the prices of these cars. Obviously, as the rate of inflation augments, the cost of everything enhances in the same pattern.
The price of a Toyota Corolla Cross currently is Rs 1.22 crores if imported from a foreign country. It is for the base variant. As far as it’s about the top-spec variant, the price goes up to 1.34 crore. Hence, these cars’ local assembly and manufacturing offer a better price range to the consumers.
Why do we Need HEVs?
The most viable option that anyone would want to avail of is a fully electric car. However, it’s currently not possible in Pakistan due to the lack of infrastructure and setup. Pakistanis are not yet ready to drive fully electric vehicles on the roads. As the power generation in Pakistan primarily relies on fossil fuel, a full-fledged electric vehicle is undoubtedly not a possibility now.
Hence, a midterm solution comes in handy, which turns out to be the best possible option. Hybrid Electric Vehicles turn out to be the perfect way out of such a situation.
HEVs are the midterm solution, and the local car enthusiasts are more than happy to avail them. What makes them convenient for the locals is that the mixed HEVs work well on the current power generation. Therefore, they don’t only reduce the carbon emission, but local manufacturing of automobiles will aid in enhancing the GDP of the country.
