Javed Afridi, the owner of Peshawar Zalmi and key stakeholder of MG Motors in Pakistan, has once again teased the launch of the MG 3 in Pakistan. In a Facebook post, Javed Afridi shared a video of the MG 3 while stating that launch of the vehicle was in its final stages.
The entrepreneur also mentioned that price of MG 3 in Pakistan will be under Rs. 2 million, which seems surprising in today’s economy considering that vehicle has a 1.5-litre engine and competes directly with the popular Suzuki Swift, which starts at Rs. 2,774,000.
Furthermore, it bears mentioning that Javed Afridi has a habit of making big claims regarding a lot of things but he never comes through in the end. The launch of the MG 3 in Pakistan seems to be one of them since MG Pakistan is yet to sell locally assembled cars in the country.
It is pertinent to mention that price of MG 3 in Pakistan (Rs. 2 million) as mentioned by Javed Afridi seems unrealistic considering the current economic condition and most vehicles available in this range are entry level hatchbacks with 660cc or 1000cc engine capacity.
Earlier, the Pakistani entrepreneur also shared a specification sheet for the MG 3 hatchback which gives us an idea of what to expect from the vehicle when it comes to Pakistan. The MG 3 comes in two engine variants, one of which is a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 105 hp and 137 Nm of torque while the other is also a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine but it makes 109 hp and 150 Nm of torque.
