Following the recipe of United Bravo
, another automaker Regal Automobile Industries Ltd., which already assembles DFSK vehicles in Pakistan (see thread
), is about to introduce a China-sourced small hatchback. Just like the Bravo, this is based on an LSEV but uses an 800 cc petrol engine for locomotion. In this case, the donor vehicle is the Yika e7 (see post
) that was launched in China in early 2017 and underwent a minor facelift thereafter. The Yika e7 itself has been superseded by the Yika e8 now.
Regal will badge the car as Prince Pearl
and the launch may take place next month. Reports about this vehicle first surfaced around February of this year. The Pearl will initially be imported from China as complete units while the company prepares for local assembly down the line.
