Suzuki has now announced its new standard model of Celerio officially in Pakistan. The news comes as Celerio replaces Cultus from now on. The formal announcement is still pending but is expected by the PSMC (Pak Suzuki Motor Company) on Wednesday. Suzuki has no doubt dominated through models like Mehran and Cultus.

On the launch of Celerio the company official hopes that the government will provide them some incentives in the new auto policy.

With the popularity of Khyber now Cultus shall be eliminated from the market. It has been 16 years of it sales till now when it will be discontinued. Thus, the Suzuki Celerio is the alternative for all people who want to have related experience of the Cultus.

The government has been offered $430 million to set up the new Greenfield plant. However, the government has denied and looked towards other foreign investors. Thus Suzuki comes in with the Celerio launch to remain in competition. The government’s new auto policy gives low taxes and cheaper import cost so that they start assembly in Pakistan. As a result, Kia is already here while Volkswagen and Fiat are negotiating.
