The Zotye Z100 is currently the ‘talk of the town’, as HRL Motors part of Habib Rafiq group are about to launch the 1.0 liter hatchback in Pakistan soon.
Although HRL hasn’t revealed much information regarding the price and features offered, however they have indicated that the Z100 will be available in 3 trim levels, i.e. Standard, Comfort and Luxury. Initially the hatchback will be imported from China as CBU however the company does have plans to assemble the car locally.
Below are the specifications of the different Z100 trims, do note that this has been obtained via our own sources and hasn’t been officially released by HRL, so final products can be different from the specs given below. However we believe it’s always good to have some prior knowledge of an upcoming vehicle.
