Car buyers in Pakistan like Changan Alsvin because it’s a good value for the money. So many people want to buy it that dealerships have stopped taking orders for all variants of Alsvin.
Many authorized dealerships told ProPakistani that they had sold all of Alvin’s cars in April and would start taking new reservations in May 2022. It has been pushed back from 45 to 75 days, they said.
As a direct competitor to the Honda City and Toyota Yaris, MCML launched Alsvin in January 2022. It comes in three different models: Standard 1.3 Manual, Standard 1.5 DCT, and Lumiere 1.5 DCT, each with a different speed.
Alvin comes in two different powertrain options. Natural gas is used to run the 1.37-liter, 4-cylinder engine. It makes 95 horsepower and 135 Newton-meters of torque, which are sent to the front wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox. The base model comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
They both have a naturally aspirated 1.5 liter, 4-cylinder petrol engine that makes 105 hp and 145 Nm of torque, which it sends to the front wheels through a 5-speed DCT automatic gearbox. The middle and top trim levels both have this engine.
Recently, Changan changed the price of Alsvin. It now costs close to Rs. 3 million. However, even though the price has gone up, Alsvin is still a good value for money because it has many great features for a low price.
As long as the company doesn’t give out its official sales figures, reports from the market say that Alsvin is giving its competitors a run for their money.
