Sales of locally-assembled cars in Pakistan are up a whopping 67% year-on-year in August to 20.479 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total up 57% to 148.915 units. If the market leader the Toyota Corolla is up 41% and perennial strong seller the Suzuki Mehran is up 29% this month, the market’s extravagant year-on-year gains are mainly due to the Suzuki Bolan minivan and Ravi pickup. These are the two cheapest and most practical vehicles currently on sale in Pakistan, and drastically lower fuel prices since the beginnong of 2015 have triggered a massive exodus of the Pakistani customers away from three-wheelers and onto these two models. The Bolan is up a staggering 250% year-on-year in August to 3.863 deliveries while the Ravi is up 235% to 3.736. These score earn the Bolan the #2 spot year-to-date at 23.304 units (+150%), while the Ravi is now less than 100 units below the Suzuki Mehra at 22.728 deliveries (+163%).
