DFSK SERES 3 Price in Pakistan
The price of DFSK SERES 3 in the Netherlands is around €37,995 (~Rs.9M). As the Regulatory Duty (RD) on EVs is reduced significantly in Pakistan, we can expect it to be launched at this price point without any massive increase unless PKR loses its value significantly against USD.
If you can’t wait for its launch, you can buy other DFSK cars for sale in Pakistan.
DFSK SERES 3 Launch Date in Pakistan
Last year, there were speculations about the possible launch of the DFSK Glory 500 which didn’t happen. So, let’s see if the company launches this electric vehicle (SERES 3) or any hybrid car in Pakistan in the coming year. Stay tuned for updates on its launch.
The removal of RD is showing its effects as first, Audi e-tron prices in Pakistan were reduced by nearly 2 crore rupees. Now, DFSK has teased the possible launch of its electric car and hybrid vehicles in the country.
If this subcompact crossover is launched in Pakistan, it will give tough competition to MG ZS EV. However, the DFSK SERES 3 price in Pakistan (expected) is way higher than ZS EV. So, we will have to see the official price upon its launch and how consumers will react on it.
Fact! DFSK has already launched an electric vehicle named Tourer 250 in Pakistan along with GUGU Motors (not Regal Automobiles). It was the first electric commercial vehicle introduced in Pakistan.
