A New SUV Competitor in the market: Hyundai Tucson
The Hyundai Nishat Motors is all set to launch its SUV Tucson next month as per a source. The SUV was showcased in the Pakistan Auto Show (PAPS -2020) in Lahore. The launch was set to be earlier this year but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and unfavorable economic condition of Pakistan.
As per sources, the South Korean company is launching its product after thorough research about the currently available SUV options in Pakistan. With Tucson SUV, they aim to fulfill the demand gaps left unaddressed by the other SUV producing companies.
The Tucson SUV will be assembled locally in Faisalabad. The price of the SUV is currently unknown. However, we expect it to be somewhere around 5 Million or less to compete the available option in the market from Korean and Chinese assemblers. The company will announce its price when they launch the car next month.
