At the PAPS 2020, BAIC displayed its vehicles. It meant that soon the vehicle will enter the auto sector of Pakistan.
A D20 hatchback from BAIC was recently spotted on the roads of Lahore which means that soon we would be seeing the launch of the car in Pakistan. It is expected that BAIC might launch both the sedan and the hatchback in the local auto sector.
Back in 2012, the production of BAIC D20 started. Globally the car is being offered with two 4-cylinder engine variants i.e. 1300cc and 1500cc. These engines can be paired with both a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
In order to develop technology, BAIC partners with brands like Mercedes-Benz. D20 shares structural and technical aspects with Mercedes B-Class. If BAIC can give same level of quality and comfort in Pakistan, it will most definitely get a huge reception.
