* See the Top 3 Pakistan-made brands and Top 12 models by clicking on the title *

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%).

Consult 23 years worth of Pakistan Historical Data here

Only sales data for locally-made vehicles is published by the Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association, however this is still a pretty accurate representation of the most popular new cars in the country as imports remain limited due to very high duties. Sales of cars made in Pakistan are up a splendid 18.4% year-on-year in 2017 to a record 239.725 units, eclipsing the previous high of 224.237 established in 2015. It is the third consecutive time (and ever) that the Pakistani market is above 200.000 annual units. The Pakistan-made brand panorama goes from 5 brands in 2016 to just 3 this year, with Sigma (Land Rover) and Hyundai disappearing from the charts. Suzuki remains firmly on top, evolving like the market at +18% to 53.7% share, whereas Toyota loses almost five percentage points of market share (from 30.6% to 25.7%) due to deliveries down 1% year-on-year. The winner of the year is Honda, up a stunning 49% to 19.7% of the market vs. 15.7% a year ago.

The Honda BR-V kick started production in Pakistan in 2017. 

Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla celebrates nine consecutive year atop the Pakistani charts but drops 6% to see its share tumble down from 27.4% to 21.8%. The Suzuki Mehran remains in 2nd place with sales up 18% to 17.9% while the Suzuki Wagon R storms into the podium with a 87% gain, up 5 spots on 2016 to #3. The Honda Civic is propelled up 73% by the new generation to #4, with the Suzuki Bolan and Ravi both stable vs. 2016 resulting is vastly inferior market shares at 8.4% and 8.3% respectively. Thanks to the new model, the Suzuki Cultus is up 27% but down one spot to #7 while the Toyota Fortuner is up 5-fold on its 2016 score but down one spot to #12. Finally, a rare event in Pakistan: a new nameplate kick-started production in 2017: the Honda BR-V, ending the year above 7.000 units and peaking at 1.248 sales in November.

The Japan-made Toyota Vitz is the most imported used car into Pakistan in 2017. 

For the first time on BSCB and thanks to one of our readers Ali we can share with you exclusive used car imports data in Pakistan for 2017. Although we do not normally track used car sales, this however gives us invaluable insight into the Pakistani customer’s tastes, showing that all the best-selling used imports come from Japan, as is the case in most of southern Asia as well as Mongolia and Russia. This is also an area to watch out as used imports shot up an astounding 64.8% year-on-year to 76.645 units, including 65.723 cars and minivans (+70%), 7.758 SUVs (+59%) and 3.154 pickups and vans (+9%).
