In Pakistan, Sazgar Engineering Works Limited (SEWL) has taken a giant step ahead by formally introducing the H6 Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). By doing this, the business has significantly surpassed its competitors. The H6 HEV is Pakistan's first locally built hybrid electric vehicle; hence this is a significant milestone.
Although the business began taking pre-orders for the H6 HEV earlier this month, the SUV was formally unveiled today in Lahore at a ceremony that was covered by several media sites. Along with the creator of SEWL, Mian Asad Hameed, the marketing director, Abuzar Butt, and the executive director, Mian Muhammad Ali Hameed, the launch was hosted by well-known on-screen celebrities Faizan Haqquee and Naveen Waqar.
The hosts described the beginnings, development, and accomplishments of the firm. The SEWL founder spoke to the audience about the company's future goals, which include the introduction of locally built versions of the Haval Jolion and the H6 Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV). The owner omitted any information on the cars' precise launch dates or timeframe.
The marketing director then went through the specifications of the SUV with the crowd. The Haval H6 HEV is a C Plus-segment crossover SUV that competes with the MG HS PHEV, Toyota RAV-4 Hybrid, Honda CR-V, and other comparable crossovers, according to details.
It boasts a well-known 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces a respectable 240 horsepower and 530 Newton-meters of torque when paired with the output of an electric motor.
Only the front wheels receive power from the hybrid powertrain thanks to Haval's 2-speed hybrid gearbox (DHT). From 0 to 100 kilometers per hour, the car can sprint in around 7.5 seconds.
The H6 HEV can go 18 kilometers in a liter in city traffic, and on the highway, the efficiency is considerably higher. In order to protect the electric motor and battery, the H6 HEV's peak speed is restricted to 180 km/h, he noted.
H6 HEV has the same features as the 2.0T AWD variant including:
The price of Haval H6 HEV is as follows:
Rs. 1.9 million
Rs. 9.75 million
Compared to the 1.5T FWD and 2.0T AWD versions, the Haval H6 HEV is a significant improvement, notably in terms of performance and efficiency. However, a superior model also justifies a higher price.
However, this is a positive move from SEWL that is probably going to inspire other regional manufacturers to follow its lead.
