Javed Afridi brought excitement to the public after he posted an image of himself driving the MG Marvel R in September 2021. He also released some promotional videos of the MG Marvel R. Later, some CBU units of the Marvel R were imported by MG Motors Pakistan for testing the practicality and performance so the company could decide whether it should be launched locally or not in Pakistan. MG Motors has hired an expert team from Nielson IQ to learn the local demands of the customers here. The trend of electric vehicles in Pakistan is appreciated by the Auto Policy here, and it introduces no registration. For the annual renewal fee for electric cars, only a 1 percent tax is applied on their import and even no federal excise on electric vehicles. MG motors have taken a step to introduce its electric ZS-EV in Pakistan in this regard, and now it’s time for the MG Marvel R in Pakistan. The excitement is raised more when the MG Marvel unveils at the MG Motors showroom at the Packages Mall Lahore.
