The Suzuki Alto is the best-selling vehicle in Pakistan in 2020.
Sales of new locally-made vehicles in Pakistan tumble down -33.6% year-on-year in 2020 to just 124.629 units, the lowest annual tally in over a decade. It follows a -26.4% fall in 2019 which means the Pakistani market has lost over half of its 2018 record volume (254.958) in just two years. Suzuki (-47.1%) remains the most popular carmaker in the country at 47.4% share but this its 12 percentage point below the 59.4% it commanded in 2019… In contrast, Toyota (-14.1%) improves from 25% to 32.4% share and Honda (-22.5%) from 15.2% to 17.7%. Hyundai is back in the Pakistani charts at #4 with 1.7% share with JAC (+6.7%) and Isuzu (-19.7%) the only two additional light vehicle local producers. Model-wise, as we predicted last year the Suzuki Alto (-7.4%) ends 11 consecutive years of domination by the Toyota Corolla (-53.5%) to sign its first ever annual win in Pakistan. One reason why the Corolla is down so much is the introduction of the Toyota Yaris as a locally-produced model, landing directly at #3 with 11.4% share. The Yaris even topped the monthly charts in October. The Suzuki Cultus (-29%) improves its share to 10.6% but remains at #4 above the Honda Civic (-21.3%) and City (-19.4%).
