Dewan has stepped back into the vehicle production with the launch of Shehzore 1-ton pickup today. The launch ceremony was held at the Mohatta Palace Museum Karachi.
The Shehzore was a very popular commercial vehicle in its class during the previous decade, it was actually the third generation of Hyundai Porter (also known as H100) which was produced internationally between 1996-2004. The current Shehzore model is the fourth generation Porter, although a Daehan product, it carries the same Hyundai engine and is a much identical product to the Hyundai H100.
Powered by a 2.6 liter diesel engine the new Shehzore is well equipped too, as it comes with stereo, air-conditioning, power steering as well as power windows. Official prices are yet to be announced but it’s expected to be around PKR 18.0 lac.
Dewan had received approval under the Brownfield Category from Engineering Development Board (EDB). The company also plans to roll out passenger cars and a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) after the re-launch of Shehzore. Dewan Motors is returning to the scene with a manufacturing agreement with Daehan-Dewan Motor Company Private Limited – a joint venture between Yousuf Dewan and Laos-based Kolao Group.
