Courtesy of the Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association, Pakistani sales of models produced locally are now available, and this is a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports are very limited. And this month there were only 9,721 new local cars sold in Pakistan, a worrying 34% year-on-year drop, however the year-to-date total is still up 4% on 2011 at 127,736 units. Big event in September: the 26 year-old Suzuki Mehran (aka Maruti 800) takes the lead with 2,551 sales for a mammoth 26.2% market share!

The Toyota Corolla, the traditional leader in the country, is down to #2 at 1,768 units and 18.2% but keeps the lead year-to-date by far at 33,219 sales and 26% vs. 25,200 and 20% for the Mehran. The Suzuki Cultus (a 1988 2nd generation Swift) climbs onto the podium with 1,022 units and 10.5% while local production of the Honda Civic has resumed, pushing it up to #6 with 778 sales and 8% vs. 1.9% last month.

    One thing thats wrong with the chart, it doesnt include the imported new and used cars but only locally assembled cars! used and new imported cars are quite big in numbers to ignore!
