    China - Pak Economic Corridor - CPEC

    Expert: despite economic orientation of the CPEC project and disregarding its future economic benefits to India with respect to cheaper trade with Central Asia and West Asia, India is opposing it on flimsy grounds.

    In order to provide comfortable travelling facility to the residents, a shuttle service for Rawat and Koral Chowk to new Islamabad Airport will be started next month on trial basis, Secretary Regional Transport Authority Khalid Yameen Satti revealed.

    The secretary said that a private company had been selected through proper bidding process for the service . The company will run buses on the 35-kilometres-long route and make arrangements to provide high quality, safe and comfortable service for the people, he said.

    He said that the company had been directed to start the service while the fares for different stops on the route would be finalised later.

    The secretary said that after every five kilometres distance, proper bus stations would be established for the facilitation of the commuters. He further said that the company had proposed Rs30 fare from one station to other with monthly cards at a cost of Rs2,500 for the regular commuters.

    To a question, he said that the RTA was taking action against transporters involved in overcharging passengers travelling on various routes in Rawalpindi as fares of public service vehicles had not been revised yet.

    Master Motors Showed Changan CX70 SUV at ITIF- Launch Expected in 2018.....

    CX70_01. Price of CX70 SUV is rumoured around PKR 2.5 Million


    The 2018 ITIF Asia is currently being held in Karachi, the trade fair started from 13th March and will end on 15th March 2018. This is already the 16th time, Karachi is hosting this event. ITIF Asia is an international trade and industry trade fair that provides a marketplace where local and international manufacturers can showcase their latest products in technology and design, establish new contacts, renew old ties and exchange ideas.

    At this year’s event, several automakers showed their vehicles which they intend to launch in Pakistan in near future. Among these was the Changan CX70 SUV displayed by Master Motors, the authorized assembler/ manufacturer in Pakistan for leading Commercial Vehicles from China including Yeujin & Foton, who will now also sell Changan branded commercial vehicles in Pakistan.

    Changan CX70 at ITIF 2018
    The CX70 SUV is actually produced by the commercial vehicle unit of Changan in China because of which it bears the “Chana” logo which is different from the emblem seen on other Changan SUVs. And if you are thinking that the CX70 has a striking resemblance with the Ford Explorer, do keep in mind that Ford is a joint venture partner of Changan in China!

    The Changan CX70 is a proper 7 seater SUV with front engine & rear wheel drive configuration and offers quite a generous space for occupants inside. It is powered by a turbocharged 1.5 liter unit that churns out an impressive 110kw (148hp) of power at 5500rpm and 230Nm of torque at 2000-4000 rpm. Fuel economy is rated at 7.6 liters per 100 km (13.2 km/ liter). The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed Aisin automatic gearbox.

    Measuring 4705x1800x1775mm it is slightly smaller than the Toyota Fortuner (4795x1855x1835mm), but has a bigger wheelbase of 2780mm compared to 2745mm of Fortuner.

    It comes packed with goodies such as dual-tone interior, 11″ control screen, multifunction leather steering wheel, power retractable rearview mirrors, electrically adjustable driver seat, automatic air-conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry system, power sunroof, GPS integration, TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System), 6-point parking sensors (270 degrees), electronic stability program (ESP), traction control system (TCS), hill-hold control (HHC), reversing camera with panoramic monitoring, Airbags, ABS with EBD etc.

    According to information, Master Motors plans to launch the CX70 within 6 months (from now) as trial & tests has already been carried out. It is however yet to be seen if the vehicle will be imported (likely) from China of will be assembled locally. Official prices are yet to be disclosed but it’s rumored to be around PKR 2.5 million.
