List of Cars that Didn’t Launch in Pakistan This Year Despite Announcements and Leaks

Here is a list of all the cars that were supposed to debut in Pakistan last year

The automotive industry of Pakistan had a series of highs and lows in 2020. Last year,  automakers were forced to delay plans for new-vehicle launches due to the coronavirus.

Here is a list of all the cars that were supposed to debut in Pakistan last year:

BAIC Lineup

The Chinese state-owned automaker, BAIC, made a massive splash in Pakistan last year. It had showcased three vehicles in February at the PAPS 2020 Autoshow in Lahore.

The company’s sources revealed that the vehicles would debut in the market from mid-to-late 2020, but the company has mostly been silent on all its social media platforms since then.

Toyota Corolla Cross

Reports on the internet during mid-2020 had stated that Toyota would launch a new crossover SUV in Pakistan. However, according to recent updates, Toyota Indus plans to put it on sale in January 2021.

Chery QQ/United Alpha


It was revealed about a month ago that United Motors intended to bring the Chery QQ back to Pakistan as the ‘United Alpha.’

The United Alpha is a Chinese hatchback launched by Karakoram Motors over ten years ago as the Chery QQ. However, due to high competition, the QQ had failed to impress and was thus discontinued.

This time around, the auto company sees the current lack of variety as an opportunity to strike again. It had initially planned to debut the car in late December but has postponed it to the first week of January 2021.

Hyundai Elantra


Sources have revealed that Hyundai Nishat has already assembled some of the Elantra units and has been planning to put the vehicle on sale in the first quarter of 2021. However, earlier, the company announced that it would launch the car in 2020.

The car is also reportedly loaded with specs and features similar to those of the internationally sold Elantras.
