Sazgar Engineering Works, the makers of 4-stroke CNG auto rickshaw acquired “Category A- Greenfield Investment Status”, under the Auto Policy 2016-21 in March 2018. Lately they have been actively testing various BAIC vehicles in our country.
Earlier the BAIC D20 hatchback was spotted by our fellows at DemLahoriGuys, while the vehicle appeared on various other instances. Now the BAIC X25 crossover has been seen in the city of Lahore which suggests the company will introduce a range of vehicles including hatchbacks as well as SUVs.
The X25 crossover sits on the same platform on which the D20 hatchback is based and comes equipped with the same 1.5 liter engine that’s found in the D20, matched to 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic gearbox options.
In terms of dimensions the BAIC X25 at 4,110/ 1,750/ 1,545 mm is slightly smaller than Suzuki Vitara (4,175/ 1,775/ 1,610 mm) however its 2,519 mm wheelbase is marginally longer than 2,500 mm of the Suzuki counterpart.
Sazgar’s main manufacturing facility is located on Raiwind Road in Lahore spread over an estate of 5 acres. However an additional 27 acres was purchased at Raiwind Manga Road in Lahore to meet the expansion needs. Further information will be updated as and when available, stay tuned to CarSpiritPK for more information on BAIC X25 in Pakistan.
