Changan in Pakistan have indicated to launch the CX70T SUV towards the end of this year. The automaker has already announced Pakistan as its production base for RHD vehicles. Since Changan has shifted its focus on developing new energy vehicles in China, the production of its conventional gasoline vehicles will be relocated to Pakistan.

Good cars are only for China. They are only interested to launch vans and commercial pickups here. No sedan hatchback or SUV is too bad play by Changan
