Thanks to PAMA we have access to sales of locally-produced models in Pakistan which gives a pretty accurate picture of the best-selling nameplates in the country as high duties limit the number of new cars imported. Sales of Pakistan-made models surge 12.8% to 23.562 units, with Suzuki doubling the market growth at +24% to 58.5% share whereas Toyota is down 7% to 22.8% and Honda up 10% to 18.6%. Model-wise, the Suzuki Mehran (+16%) posts a rare win over the Toyota Corolla (-17%): the second time in the past four months (after October 2017) but only the third time in the past four years (July 2014). Suzuki is however scheduled to finally replace the antediluvian Mehran (originally launched in 1984) with the Alto kei car currently sold in Japan sometime during 2018. It already ranks 5th here in Pakistan in the imported used car ranking we published in our Full Year 2017 Report. The Suzuki Wagon R (+69%), Cultus (+50%) and Swift (+24%) also shine, as well as the Toyota Hilux (+24%).
