Chinese Automaker launches new vehicle in Pakistan
After months of drawing speculations and driving test mules on the roads, Changan’s Alsvin has finally officially arrived in Pakistan.
The Chinese company will work in tandem with Master Motors which has reportedly set up a $100 million vehicle assembly plant in Karachi. Reports also state that the plant has an annual production capacity of approximately 30,000 units. Changan currently has seventeen dealerships across Pakistan – one in KP, one in Balochistan, four in Sindh, and eleven in the Punjab. ------------------------------
The digital reveal was hosted by the CEO of Master Changan Motors, Danial Malik. In his address, he introduced the Master group and Changan, spoke about the current car culture and Changan’s new offerings, and detailed how the Alsvin Sedan is going to be a game-changer for the Pakistani automotive industry.
The Alsvin is a sub-compact sedan that will go up against the Toyota Yaris, the Honda City, and other similar cars in the market. Although it will initially be offered as a CBU, its CKD version will go into production by mid-2021 if the demand for it is high enough. This seems to be highly probable as the car has a lot to be liked.
