It is true when they say that China can literally clone everything at a lower price! A Chinese company Jaingnan Auto (a subsidiary of Zotye Automobile) has recently manufactured a lookalike of Mehran and has named it Jaingnan TT, as Propakistani reports.
It bears a very identical resemblance with the Pakistani Mehran and is also known to be the cheapest car available in the Chinese market costing only 15,800 yuans which when converted into Pakistani rupees is equivalent to about Rs. 250,000.
The same car was available in Pakistan at Rs.700,000, which is more than thrice the price at which the Chinese are selling their version. It is also safe to assume that the Chinese manufacturers would also be earning profit by selling their version, which begs the question on the cost at which they will be manufacturing their version of Mehran.
Specs & Features
The Chinese lookalike car, Jaingnan TT has 0.8 liter three-cylinder petrol engine with 36 horsepower output. The top speed of this version is 120 km/hr and 4-speed shift manual.
The car is 3.3 meters in length and 1.4 meters in width in terms of its dimensions, exactly the same dimensions on which the Pakistani Mehran was manufactured.
It can be noted that there are improvements in this version which may include better a mileage (20 km/l), improved interior, optional ABS and powered windows.
