Unexpected Delay in Deliveries of Changan Oshan X7
Changan Oshan X7 is the first crossover in Pakistan by the Chinese state-owned automobile manufacturer. After its launch two months ago, the automaker garnered praise and has received over 1,000 bookings for the Changan Oshan X7. The CUV has 5-seat (Oshan X7 FutureSense) and 7-seat (Oshan X7 Comfort) variants that are priced at Rs. 5,950,000 and Rs. 5,750,000 respectively.
After its release in the Pakistani market, the Chinese automaker had already started delivering the Oshan X7 units to the consumers. However recently, the company has stated that there is going to be an unanticipated delay in deliveries of the car.
The delivery of vehicles will be suspended for about 30-45 days from the date of PBO.
Reason Behind Delay
The official statement by the company to the dealerships states that owing to a new wave of Omicron variant of COVID-19 in China, production is shut down in Shanghai and a few other cities due to the lockdown situation. This has led to a delay in the timely shipment of certain car parts for the local assembly of Oshan X7.
Changan has asked the official dealerships to assure the prospective customers that the company is working tirelessly to sort out the issue and deliver their cars without any further delay.
Response by Prospective Customers
On Changan Pakistan’s social media handles, the company revealed that more than 31,000 walk-in customers in the dealerships all over the country expressed interest in buying the car. Changan offers 5-years/ 150,000km warranty for the Oshan X7 and is available for purchase with bank financing solutions offered by major banks in the country.
Changan Oshan X7 is a promising addition to the Pakistani auto market and is expected to handle the competition well. Thus, Changan should resolve the supply chain issues as soon as possible for a smooth customer service experience.
