Ghandhara Nissan to Launch JAC T6 Double Cabin Pickup in Pakistan

Ghandhara Nissan is all set to launch the JAC T6 double cabin pickup truck in Pakistan. The company recently got brownfield status and is stepping up to establish a firm foothold in the growing sector of pickup truck market.

Initially, JAC T6 will be launched as an imported Complete Build-up Unit (CBU). If the truck gets good market reception locally then Gandhara will assemble the truck at its manufacturing plant at Port Qasim, Karachi.

According to some sources, two exclusively made RHD (Right Hand Drive) units of the T6 pickup are already headed to Pakistan for extensive dynamic testing.

The vehicle has pretty decent safety features as well. It comes with airbags along with the electronic brake distribution and anti-lock braking system. It has also got a 4-star rating on the Chinese car safety assessment program called C-NCAP.

As for the loading capacity, the truck can put almost all of its competitors to shame. T6 can pull up a load of as much as 1041 kilograms.

As far as the price is concerned the vehicle is expected to have a competitive price tag. Ghandhara Nissan is looking to take the competitive edge so T6 is will be priced somewhere around Rs 2.6 million.

It can’t be said with complete certainty that all of the above-mentioned features will be available in the Pakistani variant of the truck. We will have to wait for the launch to say anything with surety.

    Why would Nissan launch a JAC vehicle? Perform some basic fact-checking before copy pasting news from other sites.

    • Syed Zarar

      Ghandhara Nissan, based in Karachi, is an authorized manufacturer of not only Nissan but also Dongfeng and JAC vehicles.

      I think you need to act on what you preach; do fact checking before commenting.

        I see the author has updated the article title to “Gandhara Nissan to launch …”. It was previously “Nissan to launch JAC T6”.

        Apart from that I was in error regarding Gandhara Nissan’s JAC partnership. So, my apologies to the author.

    Instead of launching smaller cars for general public these new comers have started launching big expensive cars like we are fat Americans who need big fat cars to commute.

    Why Nissan is not launching “Nissan Nivara” insted of this sub-standard JAC truck. Pick up truck category is already dominated by Toyota hilux vigo or rivo, how a substamdard JAC truck will take its place?
