The news made a lot of noise in the Pakistani auto market. However, the claim was negated by many industry experts. This time, MG Motors declared that the company has sold 1,000 MG HS SUVs in Faisalabad alone.
Yesterday, Afridi congratulated MG Lyallpur for achieving the milestone of selling 1,000 MG HS in Faisalabad.
MG Motors and Javed Afridi never fail to amaze us from time to time. Be it the news of booking thousands of a newly launched car or their celebrations of selling a surprising number of cars in one city. That being said, we are not very positive about the validity of their claims.
So, by the Auto Policy, MG Pakistan could only import 100 units of MG HS, and 100 units of its electric variant MG ZS to benefit from the tax relaxations.
It’s possible that MG Motors did import more than 100 units of each HS variant, regardless of the 100% custom duty charges. However, if we look at the current circumstances of the international market concerning COVID-19, it is next to impossible to get the containers to import 10,000 cars and sell 1,000 in a single city.
