The key thing to note is that the MG7 wears black MG badges, as it’s the first product from MG’s new Black Label series which is targeted toward young consumers. The Black Label refers to a line of new high-end vehicles with added luxury and sportiness compared to the regular MG lineup.

MG7 in Pakistan

When MG7 was first unveiled, the company said it will be destined for various export markets just like the new MG4. Javed Afridi, the key figure behind MG cars in Pakistan also tweeted about MG7 in December 2022 but his post wasn’t well received by his followers. Afridi often tweets about various MG cars, usually labeling them as ‘Coming Soon’ or often seeking suggestions regarding their pricing.

He also created a lot of buzz for the MG3 hatchback to be priced below the Rs 2.0 million mark, but apart from the MG HS crossover, the company hasn’t launched a single locally assembled vehicle in Pakistan from more than a dozen options Javed Afridi has so far shared on his social handles.
