Sazgar Engineering Works Limited will roll out the first batch of locally-assembled units of Great Wall Motor's Haval, the H6 1.5T and 2.0T, this month. The SUVs have been priced at Rs7.425 million and Rs8.499 million, respectively.

A senior official of the company said the new SUV will be competing with KIA Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Oshaan X7, MG HS and Cherry Tiggo 8 in Pakistan.

“Haval is the number one SUV in China and number three in the world,” Head of Marketing Sazgar Engineering Abuzer Butt told Business Recorder. “Right now, we are starting with two variants, the Haval H6 1.5T and 2.0T. But another variant – the Jolion – can be added in the next few months."

The company has a capacity to assemble 40 cars a day on a single shift basis, translating to an annual capacity of 15,000 vehicles.

“We started bookings in April and gave a delivery time of November. But we are delivering vehicles at the end of August, despite all the issues. We are three months ahead of schedule and we plan to stay this way,” he claimed.

Sazgar completes manufacturing facilities for Haval, says trial operation to begin July 15

The company’s stock gained 2.73%, and closed at Rs67.47 after the announcement was made towards the end of trading at the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Friday.

In its notice, Sazgar confirmed it has completed its trial operation of Haval vehicles "before the stipulated time and first CKD roll-out is expected this month".

Background

Sazgar Engineering received the government's green-field status to manufacture Haval SUVs last year.

The company, the largest rickshaw-maker in Pakistan, also exports three-wheelers.

It has also brought another Chinese carmaker, BAIC, to Pakistan. BAIC introduced its D20 vehicle, X25 crossover, and the BJ40-Plus off-roader SUV.

Commercial production of BAIC vehicles to commence in Sept: Sazgar

Sazgar brought these two companies under the government’s green-field status. In the auto development policy (ADP-2016-21), the government offered tax incentives to car manufacturers to invest in the sector and receive tax and duty incentives.

The policy attracted a number of auto makers including KIA, Hyundai, MG Motors, Proton, Changan, DFSK and others. However, not all of them have begun local production.

The aim of the policy was to break dominance of the few automakers in the country, while increasing consumer-choice.

The policy did pave the way for new car assemblers to enter Pakistan’s auto fray, however, most of them choose to cater to the high price-tag SUV segment. There are now over a dozen SUVs available to choose from, which is the highest for any segment in Pakistan.

The auto assemblers say they have been responding to anticipated demand patterns in the country. An industry analysis by an auto company suggests that the SUV segment will grab the biggest portion of the auto market in Pakistan with approximately 37% share by 2030 ahead of sedans and hatchbacks.

The question now is not about cbu and ckd build unit. The question is about the tax relief given to haval after local production. Do they provide the price relief to customers or not. Company haven't announced new prices since the dollar decline and now they are getting tax relief as well. About 10-12 percent of price can be expected from haval.

When will Sazgar pass back the price relief to its customers after the stabilization of PKR against US$. I think they may follow suit by reducing the prices of its SUVs as that has been done by the three leading automaker's of the country before handing over its CKDs units to its customers.
