United Motors, the second largest motorcycle manufacturer of the country is in process of venturing in automobiles (four wheelers) and as per reports the company will introduce an economical 800cc hatchback and a 1000cc commercial pickup.
Various sources have been indicating that the company will launch a Suzuki Mehran lookalike, as couple of such units were also seen at their premises in a viral video late last year. Although United officials have remained of the opinion that their 800cc affordable car will be better than the Pak Suzuki Mehran.
Now interestingly the company has applied for copyrights of a car design called as the United Bravo to the Intellectual Property Organization of Pakistan. And looking at the design, the car does look fresh and impressive.
It has a modern design and has a front fascia & rear-end that looks inspired from the new Kia Rio. The car in pictures is equipped with pull-type door handles, alloy wheels, fog lamps, split tail-lamps, 3-spoke steering wheel and a floating center multimedia screen. A manual gearbox and rear-seat headrests can also be noticed in these pictures.
No information regarding the engines is available as of yet, but the Bravo does look like a promising option in small car market. Interestingly the name Bravo, is also used by JW Forland to sell their commercial pickup, so whether United will be able to market their car with Bravo nameplate is yet unclear.
It is also yet to be confirmed if the company intends to sell more than one hatchback model in Pakistan. As the previously seen Mehran look-alike can be slotted below this Bravo hatchback, we will have to wait to find out. What is your opinion regarding the United Bravo, let us know with your comments.
