According to reports, Pakistan’s automotive industry is gradually establishing itself in the export market. In a recent development on this front, it has been announced that The Sazgar Engineering Works Limited (SEWL) will export a batch of auto rickshaws to Ethiopia.

It is pertinent to mention that Ethiopia is a landlocked East-African country and has a massive demand for three-wheelers.

SEWL will export a batch of 170 rickshaws to Ethiopia in September.

About Sazgar Engineering Works Limited (SEWL)

SEWL is a Pakistan-based manufacturer of fully indigenous auto-rickshaws and other forms of three-wheeler transportation. It is the largest manufacturer, seller, and distributor of three-wheelers across Pakistan and is also the only exporter of three-wheelers or any indigenously produced vehicle in Pakistan.

According to details, the auto manufacturer recently expanded its lineup to include all-electric rickshaws. The development has allowed SEWL to market its products in countries with better Electric Vehicle (EV) ecosystems.

Experts believe that SEWL is one of the most prolific new automakers in Pakistan, with a handsome repertoire of products for the local car market.

SEWL in Partnership with Haval

Reports state that two months ago, one of SEWL’s new partners in the automotive industry, Haval, was granted the Category-A greenfield investment status to assemble and sell its vehicles in Pakistan.

Haval made its debut in Pakistan a few months ago. Since then, the Chinese automaker has launched two crossover SUVs — the Haval Jolion and the Haval H6. The debut was a huge success as both the vehicles were sold out within days of being launched.

SEWL in Partnership with BAIC

SEWL is also in partnership with the Chinese automaker BAIC. The company appeared in the PAPS auto show in February 2020 and displayed three of its vehicles — the D20, the X25, and the BJ40 — all of which received positive feedback from the public. However, the auto company has still not officially launched the three vehicles in Pakistan.

According to sources, a few unregistered units of the BAIC vehicles have been seen on the roads of Pakistan on rare occasions. Regardless, the auto company has still not made an official announcement about the bookings and sales of its vehicles.
