The latest consignment of the Haval Jolion SUVs has arrived in Pakistan earlier this week, which is good news for those waiting for deliveries of their vehicles.
The report was shared yesterday by Pakwheels.com, along with images of the complete built-up units (CBUs) parked at a Sazgar Engineering Works Limited (SEWL) warehouse.
As per the report, Haval plans to import 500 units of the Haval Jolion and around 250 units of the H6 in the next consignment to begin delivering them to the customers.
Haval is a Chinese automaker that debuted in partnership with SEWL in Pakistan earlier this year. A few months ago, it was awarded a category-A greenfield status that allows it to manufacture and sell its vehicles in the country.
Jolion and the H6 are compact crossover SUVs. The former is positioned as a direct rival of Kia Sportage, DFSK Glory 580, Proton X70, and MG HS, while the latter is positioned as an SUV that is a class above the current crop of SUVs in Pakistan in terms of features and performance.
Despite their modern appeals, Haval is struggling to anchor itself as a credible threat in the Pakistani market due to limited supplies, recurring closures of bookings, and indecisive pricings, and has blamed supply chain issues or turbulence in the local currency value for every hiccup in its operations.
As is common knowledge at this point, these issues are likely to last for several more months, and under such circumstances, Haval’s sustainability seems to be hanging in the balance.
