According to a press release published by Master Changan Motors on Thursday, Pakistan has shipped its first vehicle under the new Auto Industry Development and Export Policy (AIDEP 2021-26).
According to the press release, under the new auto policy, all OEMs will be required to begin car exports in order to help build the local sector and boost the country’s export capabilities. The Changan Oshan X7, the country’s first export car under the new policy, is the first vehicle to be unveiled in a global RHD premiere in March 2022.
Outside of China, Pakistan is the only country that produces the Changan Oshan X7.
“The Changan Oshan X7 is the first of many more vehicles that will be exported under our vision of staying Future Forward, Forever, and the Auto Industry Development and Export Policy (AIDEP 2021-26),” he continued.
Changan’s first and only RHD manufacturing centre is in Pakistan, according to the business, and it is assisting the brand’s global expansion.
The state-of-the-art plant was finished in a record-breaking 13 months and now has the potential to produce 50,000 automobiles per year, according to the company.
“Master Changan is our first RHD production base, and we are delighted to be able to export our RHD Oshan X7 SUV from Pakistan,” said Steven Zhao, Vice President of Master Changan Motors Limited.
