The Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association provides sales data for locally-made models in Pakistan, which is a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports remain limited due to very high duties. After surging 57% in 2015 sales of Pakistan-made cars drop back to reality this year at -10% to 202.381 units. Suzuki remains by far the most popular manufacturer with 53.8% share (-17%) ahead of Toyota at 30.6% (-4%) and Honda at 15.7% (+11%), up from 12.8% a year ago. The Toyota Corolla is once again the best-selling nameplate in Pakistan, posting a small 5% decline for an improved 27.4% market share. The Suzuki Mehran overtakes both the Bolan (-45%) and Ravi (-44%) to take the 2nd spot with deliveries up 3% and 18% share vs. 15.7% in 2016. The Honda City is up 2% in 5th place, the Honda Civic up 74%, the Suzuki WagonR up 71%, Toyota Hilux up 7% and the Suzuki Swift up 11%.

Suzuki WagonR Pakistan November 2016Suzuki Wagon R sales are up 70% year-on-year in Pakistan this month.

The Pakistani data is, as is the tradition on BSCB, restricted to locally-assembled models, nevertheless a pretty accurate picture of the market as import taxes are still too high to allow them in any significant numbers. Sales of Pakistani-made models are down 6% year-on-year to 17.858 units, pulling the year-to-date tally down 10% to 186.339 units. Suzuki is down 22% to 52.5% share, Toyota down 2% to 5.359 but Honda once again soars, this time by 103% to 17.3% share thanks to the new generation Civic up 329% to #4 this month. The Toyota Corolla remains the best-seller at 28.1% share ahead of the Suzuki Mehran at 17.1% and the Suzuki Bolan at 10.1%. The Suzuki Wagon R is the other great performer of the month with sales up 70% on November 2015.

Pakistani sales data is traditionally restricted to sales of locally-assembled models, a  pretty accurate picture of the new vehicle market in the country given import taxes are too high to allow imports in any significant numbers. The Pakistani market continues to slide down in October with sales down 19% to 15.988 units, pulling the year-to-date tally down 10% to 168.481. Market leaders Suzuki (-27%) and Toyota (-26%) fall faster than the market but Honda surges 60% thanks to the arrival of the new generation Civic, estimated to be up 266% on the previous model in October 2015 to land at a stunning third position. The Toyota Corolla remains the most popular nameplate in the country, following the market at -20% while in 2nd place the Suzuki Mehran is down just 8%. Notice also the Suzuki Wagon R up 87% and the Suzuki Swift up 5%.

From this month onwards we will also be reporting on brands data for new light vehicles sales in Pakistan, with the caveat that only sales for new locally produced vehicles are available for this country. Currently only three manufacturers are manufacturing in Pakistan: Suzuki holds almost 54% of the market so far this year, followed by Toyota at 31.4% and Honda at 14.7%. Hyundai is dormant at just 10 deliveries in 5 months (-17%). This situation may soon change though as we analysed last month with the Pakistani government currently attempting to woo new entrants in the local market – the most advanced talks reportedly being set up with French carmaker Renault. Meanwhile, overall sales of Pakistan-made light vehicles are down 12% year-on-year in May to 17.052 units, pulling the year-to-date total down 6% to 89.431. The Toyota Corolla remains by far the most popular vehicle in the country with sales up 4% to 5.207 ahead of the Suzuki Mehran (+17%) and Honda City (+5%) whereas the Suzuki Bolan (-49%) and Ravi (-53%) progressively return to pre-2015 levels now that the tax cuts they were benefitting last year have ended.
