The test unit brought into the country has a 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that makes 147 hp and 220 Nm of torque, all of which is sent only to the front wheels via a 7-speed DCT automotive gearbox.

As the latest generation product, the Jolion offers a good number of features, including six airbags, LED headlights and tail-lights, Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), multiple drive modes (Standard, Eco, Sport, Snow), Adaptive Cruise Control, a Traction Control System (TCS), a 10.25-inch touch screen, an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), and digital Head-up Display (HuD).

SEWL broke the news of introducing the new car brand to the Pakistani market last month. It also owns the rights to manufacture and sell BAIC products in Pakistan. However, ever since the PAPS Autoshow in February 2020, it has remained silent about any developments pertaining to the BAIC cars in Pakistan.

Details are yet to be revealed as to when the new SUV will be launched in Pakistan and at what price. However, given the extremely competitive SUV market at the moment, it would be in the best interest of Haval to introduce the Jolion with a competitive price tag.


  • Please dont visit the website of Sazgar Engineering. It is full of viruses. I am just wondering that the company with a virus fed website and such below par marketing and engineering skills is going to produce this car in Pakistan. It is a disaster waiting to be happened. They dont look and act professional at all.
