Pakistani automobile market has been dominated by the Japanese car manufacturers since quite a long time now. Japanese companies like Toyota, Honda, Suzuki, and Nisan have created a complete monopoly in the car industry of Pakistan. Japan being a highly industrialised country with a strong automobile industry has no need to import cars from other countries, especially from Pakistan where the industrial base is not that strong. However, there is one vehicle which Pakistan seems to be able to make better than Japan. And that is none other than the traditional Pakistani Rikshaw. A Pakistani company Sazgar Engineering is exporting rickshaws to Japan. Here are some pictures of these rickshaws in Japan.
The Rikshaws are the only Pakistani vehicle that is being exported to Japan.
As you would expect, these rickshaws are not being used as a general public transport in Japan. Rather they are being used for fun and as a hobby.
However, there is a lot of scope for these rickshaws in Japan. And they can prove to be a great transport vehicle for the narrow streets of some of the Japanese cities.
These rickshaws are made by the Pakistani company Sazgar Engineering.
As you would expect, the rickshaws are of a much higher quality as compared to the ones in Pakistan.
These colourful rickshaws look absolutely stunning.
They are available in different colours.
There is a huge opportunity for Sazgar Engineering and other Pakistani companies if they can capitalise in this niche.
Surely these rickshaws are quite economical and pretty easy to drive.
Many locals in Japan like to take pictures with these unique vehicles.
Some Indian and Pakistani people in Japan are also using these traditional rickshaws.
It would be interesting to see how the future turns out for these Pakistani Rickshaws in Japan.
It is surely an interesting and odd thing that finally Pakistan is exporting vehicles to Japan. Although these are not the usual cars, still it is some progress. Hopefully, there would come a day when Pakistan would be exporting high-performance cars to Japan and other developed countries.
