  1. I don’t kow if the statistic is fair. Only when you count 100% for the price it’s ok, but in my country (the Netherlands) there are a lot of high taxes added. This means the price can never be as low as in Pakistan or other countries. Our taxes are used for eg high social benefits of citizens, things I don’t think they are payed in Pakistan. Nevertheless, I like to drive around in your country for this Price 🙂 ! Brunei is not on the list? It’s also very cheap overthere!
