An official goodbye to Suzuki Mehran, after 30 years

Some call it Pakistan’s ‘national car’ because of its affordability among the sizable segment of the country, but its manufacturer Suzuki has made an official announcement to discontinue the car after around three decades.

The website PakWheels published a circular from Suzuki declaring that the company was goping to discontinue production of Mehran.

“Keeping in view discontinuation of Suzuki Mehran production, Pak Suzuki is constrained to stop the booking of Suzuki Mehran(all versions) with the immediate effect i.e. April 01, 2019,” the circular said.

Discotinuation of Mehran also brings a challenge to the local auto industry to replace the iconic affordable car with a similar vehicle having an equal range, in view of the needs of the middle class households.

Unconfirmed reports say Alto 660cc is going to replace Mehran in Pakistan, but no official word has been given on the reports so far.
