    Its 44k to reserve one, total price is R 196k

    A new Zimbabwean car company, backed by an Iranian car group based in the UAE

    it would be interesting to know where would one go to request the refund of your R 44k reservation fee when you unit does not get delivered.

    Ahh, ok. R200K opens the options up massively, especially since the support network has yet to be announced (maybe?) And certainly not tested in anger.

    Prim8? Thatís the best marketing could do?

    Hope manufacturing is better than marketing.

    It is an Iranian SAIPA Quick. Converted to right hand drive.

    The 87 is HP not KW.

    R 196000 for this?? R 44000 deposit?? You'd have to be a Primate to go for this unbeliavable offer, yes. My opinion.

    Clearly they have not done their homework on whats available on the market price wise.If it was 100k they might stand a chance.

    They might sell a few in Zim. But it will be a failure in SA

    Mureza states the Prim8 is powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine developing 87kW. However, it seems the correct figure for the 1 503cc M15-powerplant (as indicated for the Quick) is 65kW, with maximum torque of 128Nm at 4 000rpm, driving the front wheels through either a five-speed manual or a CVT.

    The Prim8 line-up, consisting of two models, will enter the market in South Africa at a suggested retail price of R196 000 and $13 500 in Zimbabwe. Other models in development include the Prime8-inspired T1 bakkie and the Athlete and Tusker models set to roll out next year.

    Mureza as the CEO doesn't know the output of the vehicle he is selling
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?

    I will wait until one does not have to pre order and then still not get one. There will be a lot of facepalm moments.

    Maybe he used to work for VW so was used to misquoting figures...
