Al-Haj Proton was maybe one of the last ones that hadn’t increased the prices of its car in the last cycle. Well, we got bad news for all your Proton lovers, however few of you are out there, that the company has increased prices of both Saga and X70.
Here are the updated new Proton car prices in Pakistan:
|Existing Price – PKR||Increase – PKR||New Price – PKR|
|Saga Standard M/T||2,579,000||245,000||2,824,000|
|Saga Standard A/T||2,729,000||270,000||2,999,000|
|Saga Ace A/T||2,849,000||300,000||3,149,000|
|X70 Executive AWD||6,050,000||800,000||6,850,000|
|X70 Premium FWD||6,400,000||900,000||7,300,000|
The big companies, especially ones like automakers, have been seeing some unprecedented economic turmoil. Companies are going through non-production days, and some, like Toyota, are even returning people their money considering they haven’t been able to procure necessary raw materials.
But at the same time, Al-Haj Proton claims that the company already has enough CKD kits for both models, which is interesting considering how inefficient they were when delivering the cars before. Either they actually have enough kits, or they know they won’t be getting enough orders in the first place. But whatever the case, considering X70 was one of the cheapest premium SUVs in the market, it is also becoming increasingly tough to buy.
