This time, however, people weren’t having it and some people commented on his tweet asking him to do much more than just giving teasers.

A user named Amer Shehzad said, “Soon word was also used for MG3 and wuling mini cars before 3-4 month but these cars didn’t come. Similarly, MG6 is also coming soon and will touch Pakistan soil perhaps in 2022.”

A blog argued that it remains to be seen if such big cars would be launched in Pakistan, as the recent budget has focused on the smaller and affordable car sector of Pakistan, so we shall wait now for such teasers to materialize.
