The report adds that the COO of GNL, Muazzam Pervaiz, and other officials from the company presented a brownfield investment plan of Rs. 2.4 billion before the BoI. Under the plan, the company shall introduce various passenger vehicles including several crossovers SUVs, and EVs.

The company has entered an official agreement with the Chinese automaker, Chery, for the manufacturing and distribution of their passenger vehicles in Pakistan.

About a month ago, GNL confirmed that it shall be introducing the Chery Tiggo 8 in Pakistan soon. Chery Tiggo 8 is a midsize crossover SUV that competes with the likes of KIA Sorento and Toyota Fortuner.

Details have not yet been revealed as to when the vehicle would make its debut here and at what price point. However, given the current fascination of Pakistanis with the SUVs, the Chinese family hauler is likely to do well in the burgeoning automotive market of Pakistan, provided if GNL executes its master plan to introduce new cars in Pakistan successfully.
