Here in Pakistan, we don’t get numerous new cars into the Auto Industry, the generally trusted thoughts in such manner show that this division has been under the control of nearby auto constructing agents however Pakistan’s vehicle industry has seen some positive changes as far back as the presentation of the Auto Policy 2016-21. However, the presentation of mid-extended vehicles in the Pakistani market has been extremely constrained. Up to this point.
Now HRL(Habib Rafique Group) has just released a compact Hatch Back car which is a complete assembled unit from China. The car is known as Zotye Z100 in China and here in Pakistan it is called “HRL ‘Z100′”.
According to HRL website, HRL motors have collaborated with the Chinese organization Zotye to present new reasonable Chinese car in Pakistan.
Internationally, there are three variations of Z100 available in the market:
But in Pakistan it is launched in just one varient i.e. Z100.
The HRL Z100 has a EURO 4 compliant 1.0 liter 12 valve inline-3 engine under the hood which comes with a 5 speed manual transmission which produces 68bhp at 3500rpm and a max of 66.4 lb-ft of torque. These specifications allow the Z100 to reach a top speed of 150km/h. HRL motors claims that the Z100 can get 18.9 km/l of mileage that combined with the 35 liter fuel tank should make for a theoretical driving range around 660km on a single tank of fuel, Lets hope!!

Pricing & Booking
HRL Motors has launched the Z100 with a price quote of PKR 1,172,000 and can be booked by customers for just PKR 25,000.
Over HRL Motors has taken a good step of bringing compact affordable vehicles to market which will compete other locally made vehicles especially that of Suzuki Pakistan. The Z100 comes with good features overall but still they should have launched the car in a slightly less budget than PKR 1.17 million. As far as features are concerned so FAW V2 already have them all and also comes with a more powerful engine, SRS Airbags, ABS & EBD brakes but with a price tag of PKR 10,69,000. But again overall the car is much better than some locally manufactured cars.
What do you think about the new Z100 in Pakistan??
