Afridi’s most recent tweet featured an MG GT television commercial (TVC) with the tagline, “MG GT SEE YOU THIS YEAR IN PAKISTAN!!” causing a flurry of curiosity among vehicle enthusiasts.
Last year, the MG GT was on display in Packages Mall Lahore, much to the delight of onlookers. The C-Segment sedan will most likely compete with the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, and Hyundai Elantra in Pakistan.
The 1.5-liter naturally aspirated powerplant in the demonstration car delivers 118 horsepower (hp) and 155 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque. It had an automated CVT transmission that sent power to the front wheels.
The inside of the MG GT is contemporary, with a 7-inch touch-based infotainment unit, a screen-based driver’s display, a stitched-leatherette interior, and electrically adjustable front seats, among other things.
Launch in Pakistan
According to reports, MG will debut the GT in Pakistan this year, which does not appear plausible for various reasons.
A top MG executive who sought anonymity in his most recent conversation with ProPakistani claimed that the business would undertake full-scale local manufacture of its vehicles in the second half of 2022. He also stated that the first domestically built car would be the HS SUV.
The business will most likely turn its attention to domestically assembling ZS 1.3T. This means that the company’s H2 CY2022 will be consumed with meeting SUV demand.
ProPakistani reached out to MG over this tweet, but the firm has yet to respond.
