Courtesy of the Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association, as is the tradition on BSCB we can share with you the best-selling locally produced models, a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports are still relatively limited. Sales of these vehicles in Pakistan more than double year-on-year on a particularly low July 2014 base at +128% to 15.909 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total to 128.436 units, up a very impressive 55.5% on 2014. The good health of the Pakistani new car market this year has a lot to do with the price of petrol taking a dive. Thanks to the new generation, the Toyota Corolla is up 6-fold year-on-year to 3.868 sales while the Suzuki Mehran – underperforming the market at +77% – regains the 2nd spot it holds year-to-date. Below, both the Suzuki Bolan (+212%) and Ravi (+326%) continue to deliver explosive year-on-year gains.

Sales of locally produced new cars in Pakistan are up a whopping 47% year-on-year in June to 17.802 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total halfway through 2015 to 112.527 units, up an equally impressive 49% on 2014. The trends we have observed in the past few months are confirmed in June: the Toyota Corolla is up 5-fold on June 2014 which was a month of transition to the new generation, the Suzuki Bolan is up 146% to 3.003 sales – now #3 year-to-date – and the Suzuki Ravi pick-up is up 138% to 2.590 units, both models now threatening the Suzuki Mehran for the #2 spot in 2015. Bolan and Ravi sales are boosted by low fuel prices which have triggered buyers to upgrade to these models from three-wheelers.

Only sales of locally-produced models are available monthly in Pakistan, giving us an insight into what should form roughly 80 to 90% of the overall Pakistani market. Sales of new locally-produced models are up a fantastic 57% year-on-year in May to 19.337 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 94.725 units, up 49% on 2014. Below the Toyota Corolla more than doubling its sales year-on-year to 5.030 units thanks to the new generation, the Suzuki Bolan and Ravi continue to deliver astounding gains at 135% and 167% respectively, and now both threaten the Suzuki Mehran for 2nd place overall in 2015. This is likely the result of a much awaited production increase to finally satisfy local demand for this type of very affordable vehicle in Pakistan.

Only sales of locally-produced models are available monthly in Pakistan, giving us an insight into what should form roughly 80-90% of the overall Pakistani market given very high import taxes prevent a significant amount of foreign new cars from rolling into the country. 19.176 locally-produced light vehicles found a buyer in Pakistan in April, a 57% year-on-year jump lifting the year-to-date total to 75.388 units, up 47% on 2014. Below the Toyota Corolla still very solid at 28.2% share and doubling its sales year-on-year, the Suzuki Bolan soars 182% to 2nd place with 3.248 units while its pickup twin the Ravi is up an equally impressive 176% to 3.147 sales in 3rd position. Seems like a price readjustment has unlocked significant sales potential for these two models that have been around for decades, giving Suzuki a welcome sales surge.

Pakistan March 2015: Suzuki Ravi progresses further to 2nd place

Suzuki Ravi Pakistan March 2015Suzuki Ravi sales are up a stunning 248% year-on-year in Pakistan in March.

Only sales of locally-produced nameplates are available for Pakistan for now, however this is a fairly good representation of the best-sellers in the country as very high import taxes make new imports relatively rare. The market for new locally-produced models is up an explosive 72% year-on-year in March to 21,147 registrations, lifting the first quarter total to 56,212 deliveries, up 44% on 2014. The Toyota Corolla seems unbeatable atop the sales charts with 5,196 units and 24.6% share, however the Suzuki Ravi is making great progress: up a stunning 248% year-on-year to 3,784 sales, stealing the 2nd spot away from the Suzuki Mehran (3,184) while the Suzuki Bolan is also in great shape at 3,521 units, up 205% on March 2014. The Mehran remains #2 year-to-date for now at 9,572 sales vs. 7,674 for the Ravi and 7,245 for the Bolan.

Only sales of locally-produced nameplates are available for Pakistan, and these are up an impressive 36% year-on-year in February to 17,356 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 35,065 units, up 31% on 2014. The Toyota Corolla continues to reign supreme with sales up 42% to 25.6% market share followed by the Suzuki Mehran at 16.8% but the heroes of the months are two mini Suzukis more than doubling their sales year-on-year in the country: the Ravi Pick-up is up 135% to 2,632 deliveries and 15.2% while the Bolan minivan is up 111% to 2,439 units and 14.1% share, both overtaking the Honda City in February and year-to-date.

The Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association communicates each month the sales of locally produced models, which is a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports are still relatively limited. And its a bumper start of the year for sales of such vehicles: up 27% on January 2014 to a whopping 17,709 units. It may have a little bit to do with the success of the new generation Toyota Corolla up 62% on one year ago to 5,864 sales and 33.1% share this month, followed by the Suzuki Mehran at 19.6% (+37%) and the Honda City at an excellent third place with 2,103 sales and 11.9% share (+59%).

The Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association communicates each month the sales of locally produced models, which is a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports are still relatively limited. In 2014 sales of these vehicles are up 3% to 143,062 units. Thanks to the new generation that went on sale during the second half of the year, the Toyota Corolla is the best-selling model in Pakistan for the 6th straight year with 36,941 deliveries (+12%) even hitting market shares above 35% over the last few months of the year. The Suzuki Mehran, a 1986 Maruti 800, is down 9% but still holds very strong at 19.9% market share. The Suzuki Bolan passes the Suzuki Cultus to climb on the podium at #3 while we welcome the Suzuki WagonR in the ranking at #10 with 3,326 sales.

As is the tradition on BSCB, I can share with you sales of locally-produced models in Pakistan for the month. 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. Sales of locally-produced cars in Pakistan are up a very robust 23% year-on-year in November to 11,789 units, lifting the year-to-date total into positive territory at 131,975 deliveries, up 1% on 2013. Thanks to the new model, the Toyota Corolla more than doubles its sales YOY to 4,202 units and a mammoth 35.6% market share (+114%), also double the sales of any other nameplate in the country. The Suzuki Mehran comes at a distant second with 2,040 deliveries and 17.3% (-21%) while the Suzuki Bolan is up one spot on October to slide into third position.

As is the tradition on BSCB, I can share with you sales of locally-produced models in Pakistan for the month. 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 market for locally-produced cars is up a very dynamic 27% year-on-year in October to 12,653 deliveries, bringing the year-to-date total to 120,186 units, now down just 380 sales on 2013. The Toyota Corolla continues to fully enjoy the benefits of its new generation, up a gigantic 81% on October 2013 to 4,099 sales and a huge 32.1% market share. The Corolla is now down just 2% year-to-date. The Suzuki Mehra (+18%), Cultus (stable) and Bolan (+12%) follow.
