All industries in Pakistan are suffering a severe impact as a result of the economic crisis, including the local auto industry, which is barely able to survive as a result of the crisis. During the past six days, Sazgar Engineering Works Limited (SEWL) has suspended vehicle production, which illustrates the difficult economic situation within the industry.

The Pakistani manufacturer of Haval and BAIC shuts down

During the period of February 27 to March 4, 2023, the company will observe non-production days (NPDs). A complete knock-down (CKD) kit import restriction has resulted in a limited amount of stock available for customers, as a result of limited stock availability

The SEWL has confirmed that the three-wheeler production facility will remain operational for the foreseeable future. There is therefore only the possibility of a disruption in the production of Haval and BAIC vehicles as a result of this.

It can be said that Haval has experienced a significant increase in sales of cars in January 2023. As a result of this, the company recorded the highest monthly sales in a single month since it launched in Pakistan, with 416 units sold in a month.

Aside from the H6, Haval currently has only one SUV in its lineup – the H6. In addition to the conventional SUV, the SUV is also available in three hybrid variants, the first and only local assembly hybrid SUV in Pakistan as well.

However, the recent hike in the prices and tax rates of this SUV have forced it into the club of SUVs that cost more than a lakh rupees. In conclusion, it is a pity that not many people in Pakistan can afford to buy a hybrid SUV despite it being the only locally assembled hybrid SUV in the country.
