Changan Pakistan has been teasing something new coming from the company. On 16th April, the company updated the Facebook official cover with “Future, Forward, Forever’ written on it.
The same day, the company uploaded a picture with words, “ The Future is more than pipedreams & buzzword.” This picture is on the Facebook page along with the caption, “… We are talking about a future that’s tangible, a future that we can bring to Pakistan.”
The company says that they want to move on beyond the experiment stage. In the latest post, they talked about the Forward, saying that forward is “a state of mind.” The company captioned it saying that they believe in implementing in the literal sense.
They questioned the audience with the question, “Guess what our next push forward will bring for Pakistani roads?”
This all points to something new coming from the company. The guesses on social media based on the past few days point to 3 new cars, The SUV UNI-T, the SUV Oshan X7, and the F70 pickup truck.
