Haval Jolion is another locally assembled car in Pakistan. Sazgar Engineering Works Limited (SEWL) is ready to launch the all-new Haval Jolion in competition with KIA Sportage, Proton X70, Hyundai Tucson, and other SUVs in Pakistan.
SEWL also launched many locally assembled vehicles in 2022 like Haval H6 1.5T, H6 2.0T, and HEV variant. It was in the same launch event that SEWL hinted at the launch of the Jolion 1.5T and H6 PHEV variants.
