Pakistan has begun exporting SUVs to Africa, for the first time

Master Changan Motors Ltd (MCML), a joint venture between Pakistan’s Master Group and China’s Changan Automobile, has become the first carmaker to ship Made-in-Pakistan 14 Oshan X7 SUVs to Kenya for sale in Kenya and Tanzania. This significant achievement occurred on the 10th anniversary of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Last year, the first sample unit was also sent to an Oceania country. At a ceremony conducted at MCML’s Port Qasim plant, CEO Danial Malik stated that Kenya and Tanzania are among the many nations where MCML aims to make its imprint and boost export volumes.

Changan Automobile China, he added, intends to invest $10 billion in the global market, with a product focus on intelligent low-carbon core technologies. Master Changan Pakistan, as Changan’s right-hand drive (RHD) production base, will play an important part in Changan’s ‘Vast Ocean’ goal to cater to RHD markets internationally. He stated that the export of “Made in Pakistan” automobiles is entirely dependent on the federal government’s initiatives to encourage and incentivize the automotive industry.

The Oshan X7 is Master Changan’s flagship product, with amazing size and performance. It has Pakistan’s sole 1.5L turbocharged engine, which achieves an economical fuel average of 14-15 kmpl and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.23 seconds. The car also has a modern look, a sumptuous interior, and cutting-edge technology including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Forward Collision Warning (FW), and heated and ventilated seats. It is the only vehicle in its class that provides a configurable 5/7 seat arrangement, responding to a wide range of tastes and needs.

Previously, Pak Suzuki Motor Company Ltd (PSMCL) stated that it is also focusing on the export of its vehicles. The export ceremony, held in Karachi, coincided with the 10th anniversary of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a major initiative of China’s Belt and Road Initiative aimed at increasing economic and infrastructural linkages between the two nations.

A sample unit was also sent to an Oceania country last year, paving the way for future worldwide development. Danial Malik, CEO of Master Changan, stated that the firm was taking a significant step towards achieving its ambition of making Master Changan a part of Changan’s worldwide car supply chain under the ‘Vast Ocean Plan,’ a plan outlined earlier this year by Changan Automobile’s Chairman, Zhu Huarong.

“In the current strategy, Changan Automobile intends to invest $10 billion in overseas markets, with a focus on intelligent low carbon core technology.” “Master Changan Pakistan, as Changan’s Right-Hand Drive (RHD) manufacturing hub, will play a critical role in realising the ‘Vast Ocean’ plan by catering to RHD markets globally,” Malik told a news conference. “Under the ‘Vast Ocean Plan,’ we are taking the next major step towards realising our vision of making Master Changan a part of Changan’s global vehicle supply chain, while also putting Pakistan on the map for producing and exporting high-quality vehicles to the rest of the world.” “Kenya and Tanzania are just the beginning of our efforts to increase our export quantities.”

The Oshan X7 is Master Changan’s flagship product, with amazing size and performance. It has Pakistan’s sole 1.5L turbocharged engine, which achieves an economical fuel average of 14-15 kmpl and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.23 seconds.

It is the only vehicle in its class that provides a configurable 5/7 seat arrangement, responding to a wide range of tastes and demands.

Malik thanked the government for the vehicle export program 2021-2026, which aims to encourage and stimulate the automotive industry. In Pakistan, the Oshan X7 is offered in two models: the Oshan X7 Comfort and the Oshan X7 FutureSense. It is a symphony of aggressive geometric design that turns heads and drops jaws. The shape, surface, and lines of the Changan Oshan X7 are works of art that blend confidence, supremacy, and an imposing presence with athletic grace. The Oshan X7 Comfort is priced at Rs. 8,549,000, while the FutureSence model is priced at Rs. 9,199,000.

The Oshan X7, Master Changan’s flagship offering, is a vehicle of exceptional size and performance. It has Pakistan’s proprietary 1.5L turbocharged engine and a fuel economy of 14-15 km per litre. It can also go from 0 to 100 km per hour in 8.23 seconds. The Oshan X7 is known for its sleek look, opulent interior, and cutting-edge technology like as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Forward Collision Warning (FW), and heated and ventilated seats. It is the only vehicle in its class that provides a flexible 5/7 seat arrangement, responding to a wide range of tastes and demands.

Master Changan Motors Ltd (MCML), a Pakistani carmaker, has begun selling 14 Oshan X7 SUVs to Kenya. A Pakistani automobile firm founded by Pakistan’s Master Group and China’s Changan Automobile has reached a critical milestone. They began selling automobiles, proudly labelled “Made in Pakistan,” to the Kenyan and Tanzanian markets. They also intend to boost their shipments to other nations in the future.

This export success was recognised during an event in Karachi, which also marked the 10th anniversary of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). CPEC is a critical initiative of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, aimed at improving commercial and infrastructural links between the two countries.

The news revealed to Business Recorder, is presently under wraps since the business is scheduled to publicly disclose its export strategy on October 12 during a ceremony at its Karachi factory.

Changan Pakistan CEO Danial Malik has already spoken out about the company’s aim to sell right-hand drive automobiles intended for Pakistan to other areas. The main firm first produced left-hand drive automobiles for the local market. Danial earlier stated that Changan’s Pakistan-assembled automobiles will be supplied to distributors in South Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, and other countries with predominately right-hand drive vehicles. The development also comes at a time when Pakistan is experiencing tremendous economic turmoil as a result of runaway inflation and expensive business costs.
