Of all the new automakers in Pakistan, MG seems to make the most headlines. It has been revealed that the automaker is ready to set up an Electric Vehicle (EV) manufacturing facility in Raiwind, Lahore.

MG has been brought to Pakistan as a joint venture between the JW-SEZ Group and SAIC Motors, which is one of the biggest manufacturers in China. The company will reportedly manufacture EV in its own Specialized Economic Zone (SEZ) with a local investment of Rs. 637 million, and foreign direct investment of Rs. 663 million.
