Thanks to the Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association, we have access to monthly sales of locally produced models in Pakistan, which is a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports are still relatively limited. Sales of locally produced vehicles are down 8% year-on-year in March to 12,269 registrations, bringing the First Quarter total to 38,968 units, up just 0.5% on 2013. Below the Toyota Corolla far ahead at 27.7% share, the Suzuki Mehran drops 26% to just 18% share and the Honda City brilliantly rounds up the podium thanks to 1,231 sales and a round 10% share, up 20% on March 2013. Notice also the Suzuki Ravi up 4% to #5, the Toyota Hilux up 33% to #8 and the Land Rover Defender, sold by local car company Sigma Motors, up 186% to 103 sales, its first month above 100 units since Defender sales started being recorded over 18 months ago.
