Pakistan data is only for Pakistan-made models, yet it is a fairly representative picture of the local market as imports remain limited. After gaining 23% in January but dropping 9% in February, sales of Pakistan-made models confirm they a hitting the brakes with March volumes down 17% to 17.587 units, pulling the year-to-date total into negative territory at 55.178 registrations, down 2% on the same period a year ago. The perennial leaders the Toyota Corolla (-5%) and Suzuki Mehran (-9%) drop slower than the market and as a result gain market share while the Honda City jumps onto the podium thanks to sales up 23%. The main reason for the market decline is the fall of grace of the Suzuki Ravi (-52%) and Bolan (-57%), the heroes of 2015 due to the end of subsidies for the cutthroat priced commercials.
