Cars In Pakistan
Morris Garage (MG) Motors is a Chinese automaker that was once British. Since 2007, the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) of China has owned this automobile brand. The JW-ZES Group of Pakistan is MG Motors' local partner, and Javed Afridi, the CEO of Haier Pakistan, is a major stakeholder. In November 2020, the company made its debut in the Pakistani auto market with the MG HS, a compact SUV. In 2021, MG Pakistan plans to release two more cars, the MG ZS and the MG ZS EV.
MG Motors began as a British sports car manufacturer in 1924. However, over the course of nine decades, the company has passed through the hands of eight major automotive conglomerates. The most common names on the list of MG owners are MG Rover, Nanjing Automobile Corporation (NAC), and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). MG Motors is currently owned by SAIC, one of China's largest automobile manufacturers. SAIC produces MG cars in China and sells them all over the world. Under Pakistan's Automotive Development Policy 2016-2020, MG Motors was granted greenfield status. MG then formed a partnership with JW-ZES Group, the owner of Haier Pakistan, and Peshawer Zalmi to enter the Pakistani market as a newcomer.
The MG HS is a sporty SUV with a high-quality interior. In Pakistan, the HS is equipped with a 1.5-litre GDI Turbo-Charged engine that produces 160hp and a maximum torque of 250 Nm. LED daytime running lights, bi-function projector headlights, rear parking sensors, rear and front aero wipers, electrically adjustable side mirrors, 18-inch diamond cut alloy rims, and a 10-inch infotainment system are among the highlights of the vehicle. MG HS price in Pakistan starts from Rs. 85 lacs.
The MG ZS features an 8-inch infotainment system, 17-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, bi-function projector headlights, rear parking sensors, rear and front aero wipers, electrically adjustable side mirrors, six airbags, and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, as well as the same 1.5-litre engine as the HS (TPMS). MG ZS price in Pakistan is Rs. 44 lacs.
MG ZS EV
In Pakistan, this electric version of the MG ZS SUV was released in 2021. A 44.5 kWh battery powers the MG ZS EV's front-mounted electric motor, which produces 140 hp and 350 Nm torque. The ZS EV, according to the company, can travel up to 262 kilometers on a single charge. The EV has an automatic CVT transmission and many of the same features as its twin.
