In a bid to keep the focus of Pakistani audience to the brand-new MG Motors, Javed Afridi has teased the brand-new MG Extender pickup trust. This massive new vehicle is going to be a direct competitor of Toyota Hilux and bring in more variety to the Pakistan car market.
While most of the car makers are launching smaller vehicles, Javed Afridi has made it his mission to bring in as many mega new projects to Pakistan as possible. The new MG Extender is the biggest example of it. After the success of MG HS and MG ZS, the mastermind shared the possibility of MG 3 Hatchback and now it seems like the pickup truck is also under consideration.
