    Proton Pakistan CKD X70 SPECS

    With the restrictions slowly easing, Pakistan received the required CKD kits and thus rolled out the very first locally-assembled X70 in the country. The news was announced via a post on the company’s social media account that read, “Al-Haj Automotive rolls out the first locally assembled X70 from its state-of-the-art vehicle assembly plan, continuing to set it to industry standards in Pakistan.”

    The interesting bit is the CKD X70 in Pakistan will enjoy a slight price reduction of around 100,000 Pakistan rupees (RM 2,375), thanks to the reduced federal excise duty. The custom duty in Pakistan has also been reduced from 7 to 2 percent.
