hangan Pakistan has increased prices of all their car variants as the company follows in the footsteps of other car manufacturers.

The prices have been increased by up to Rs275,000 and the company has cited increasing shipment cost due to container shortage as a major reason. “The freight charges have gone up,” the company said.

The new prices have already taken effect.

This is the second price increase announcement from Changan Motors this year. The company increased the prices of Alsvin variants by Rs120,000 in August but had to withdraw the decision after government intervention.

However, car prices in Pakistan witnessed a new wave of hike in November and almost all automakers announced the revised prices in wake of rising shipping costs and depreciating value of the rupee.
