According to PAMA, sales of locally-made light vehicles in Pakistan are up a very robust 9.1% year-on-year to 22.380 units, lifting the year-to-date volume up 12.3% to 68.596 registrations. Suzuki evolves exactly like the market at +9% to 50.3% share, markedly below its YTD level of 55.3%, while Toyota is down 2% but posts a strong 25.9% share vs. 23.8% YTD. Honda is once again the hero of the month at +41% to 23.9% share vs. 20.7% so far in 2018. Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla puts an end to 2 consecutive months of Suzuki Mehran reign (something that had not happened in 3.5 years) and reclaims control both in March despite sales down 11% and YTD in spite of a 13% drop. The Suzuki Mehran (+1%) is relegated to #2 in both rankings, followed by the Honda Civic (+22%) on the podium. The Toyota Hilux (+42%), Honda City (+24%) and Suzuki Cultus (+14%) also outpace the market this month.
