The company is planning to launch the Sedan in the first quarter of 2021, with expected price between Rs3.6million to Rs4million, the sources said.
It is pertinent to mention that Elantra is the main competitor of Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla, internationally. This means, after Yaris and City, the other vehicles of Toyota and Honda are getting tough competition in Pakistan.
The sources have also claimed that Hyundai has already assembled handful units for the local market. Hyundai Nishat displayed this car at 2020 PAPS Auto Show. The company vowed to launch it before end of 2020. However, it didn’t happen mainly because of COVID-19 pandemic.
