The recent surge in fuel prices has had disastrous effects across Pakistan, leading people to seek out cheaper modes of transportation. As a result, there is now a heightened demand for hybrid cars.
Whereas newer hybrid models are unattainable for most purchasers, certain used options are comparatively inexpensive, making them an appealing choice. The following is a list of hybrid cars available for less than Rs. 4 million.
- Honda Freed
- Toyota Sienta
- Suzuki Xbee
- Nissan Dayz Highway Star
- 8th Generation Honda Civic
- Lexus CT200h
- Honda Spike
- Toyota Corolla Axio Hybrid
Toyota Aqua – Starting Price: Rs. 2.2 Million
Car enthusiasts often choose the Toyota Aqua for its sleek design. It’s one of the most popular hybrid cars in Pakistan for good reason – it’s frugal and powerful. But it has even more to offer than its competitors, including reliability, overall performance, and resale value.
Honda Fit — Starting Price: Rs. 2.2 Million
The Honda Fit competes with the Toyota Aqua and outperforms it in terms of practicality and spaciousness. It is reasonably powerful and well-equipped, with a fuel economy of up to 16 km/l in the city and up to 21 km/l on the highway. Prices for the Honda Fit in Pakistan start at Rs. 2.2 million and can go well over Rs. 4 million; however, some high-mileage, yet nicer examples of the Honda Fit can be found for around Rs. 3 million.
Toyota Prius — Starting Price: Rs. 2.4 Million
It is important to note that since Toyota Prius is the oldest hybrid car in Pakistan, certain examples of it are valued at under Rs. 2 million. However, most such cars can be a hassle to own and are, therefore, not included in this list.
Reasonable examples of the Prius are available for around Rs. 2.5 million, while the newer and top-tier plugin hybrid models have price tags as high as Rs. 8 million.
Suzuki Wagon R FZ Hybrid — Starting Price: Rs. 2.4 million
The high demand for K-cars is due to their small engines and excellent fuel economy. In addition to being compact, comfortable, and well-equipped, the Wagon R Hybrid has an impressive fuel economy of 26 km/l in the city and around 30 km/l on the highway, as reported by owners on various forums. The car is available in Pakistan at prices ranging from Rs. 2.4 million to Rs. 3 million, making it one of the most affordable hybrid cars in Pakistan.
Nissan Note — Starting Price: Rs. 3 million
The Nissan Note has enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years. It is a compact car that is still spacious and well-equipped, promising excellent fuel economy while being easy to live with.
Used Nissan Note models start at Rs. 3 million, while freshly imported models are priced well above Rs. 4.5 million. However, an older model can be had in good condition for between Rs. 3.4 million and Rs. 3.8 million.
Honda Vezel — Starting Price: Rs. 3 Million
Pakistanis have developed a liking for crossover SUVs in recent times. While hybrid-powered crossovers are an ideal choice, most hybrid-powered crossovers are unfortunately too expensive.
Honda Vezel is still the only hybrid crossover in Pakistan that combines comfort, performance, practicality, and reasonable price in one package. It is a well-equipped SUV that offers a fuel economy of around 15 km/l in the city and around 20 km/l on the highway.
Vezel falls in a Rs. 3 million – 6 million price bracket, with newer models priced higher. However, nicer and slightly high-mileage examples can be had for around Rs. 3.8 million.
