Top Hyundai Premium Cars Launching in Pakistan: Complete Price & Specs List

Hyundai Nishat's collaboration to advance the Pakistani auto sector has produced the opportunities for the mega-company to produce some of its premium models in Pakistan. Hyundai will be bringing Tucson, Elantra and Sonata from its lineup and Pakistan is all geared up.

FIEDMC M3 Industrial City, Pakistan’s Nishat Group of companies and one of Japan’s leading trading companies, Sojitz Corporation, made it possible for Hyundai to return to Pakistan and start local production. Hyundai was the leading car producer in Pakistan since 2004 but halted production when its partner, Dewan Farooque Motors Limited, declared bankruptcy.

The time is ripe to invest in Pakistan’s auto industry and Hyundai seems to be getting on board. Earlier this month, Hyundai Nishat Motor Private Limited announced that its manufacturing plant is ready for production in FIEDMC’s M3 Industrial City.

Hyundai plant in Pakistan is fully operational and is running on the capacity of producing 15000 vehicles in a year in its initial phase. Hyundai-Nishat collaboration rolled out its first “Made in Pakistan” Porter H-100 pickup that is performing well in Pakistan.

Hyundai plans in Pakistan

But Hyundai does not plan on stopping on just producing a pickup truck for the Pakistani auto market. Hyundai plans on introducing its premium cars in Pakistan and what best venue other than Pakistan International Auto Show 2020.

Pakistan International Auto Show of the largest auto shows of Pakistan will be held at Lahore International Expo Centre, and different auto manufacturers, auto parts manufacturers, suppliers, and auto service providers will take part in this year’s edition. While this event produces an opportunity for all the prominent car producers in Pakistan, Hyundai eyes to cash the most out of it.

Hyundai Tucson offers an exquisite exterior and premium interior mated to a powerful engine.
