According to reports by some authentic sources, Ghandhara Nissan Limited (GNL) is partnering with the Chinese automotive firm, Chery Automobile Co., to bring their SUVs to Pakistan, which is exciting news for Pakistani car lovers.
Looks like the SUV range in Pakistan is going to get a “Chery” on top.
GNL is a renowned truck and bus manufacturer based in Karachi. In Pakistan, the firm assembles and produces Isuzu vehicles. Sources have told that GNL is working in the country on an agreement with Chery to launch their SUVs. Chery Automotive Co. and GNL are going to sign this agreement in the coming few weeks, according to the same reports.
Sources also added that GNL will produce Chery SUVs in Pakistan, which is definitely good news.
The Chinese car manufacturer has a number of luxury SUVs and, according to the reports, Tiggo 8 is the most expected SUV to enter the Pakistani auto market.

Another Addition to Pakistan’s SUVs Segment
A delightful job has been done by Pakistani automotive companies to expand the country’s SUV range in 2020. This year, we have seen many newcomers, from Kia Sportage to MG HS, Hyundai Tucson, Proton X70, and DFSK Glory 580 Pro. Thanks to GIL, Chery Tiggo 8 will soon become a member of this SUV group.
Earlier before, Chery had already made an unsuccessful attempt in 2005 to penetrate the Pakistani market with a small car, the Chery QQ. This time, by partnering with Ghandhara Industries Limited to bring SUVs to our local market, the company aims to make a second attempt. This is a brave move by the Chinese carmaker, and we’re excited to see where it’s going to land.
