Topline security’s report further suggests that if KIA’s sales are also added to the equation, the percentage is bumped up to 67 percent on a Year on Year (YoY) basis. It bears mentioning here that Lucky Motors – the company that reintroduced KIA in Pakistan – is still not a member of PAMA.

The data further shows that the Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) has once again taken the lead in sales volume, having sold 9,013 vehicles in January 2021, recording a Month-on-Month (MoM) sales increase of 19 percent and a YoY sales increase of 62 percent.

  • customer have to wait 2 to 3 months, inshahallah suzuki honda and toyota have no more in memories. they always makes you fool.

  • This will never down because you & me have no option to buy other car because of us they are making their industry strong & strong day by day. If as a nation we commit to boycott then it could be happened to down their level.. I wish our local motor industry exists soon & manufacturer for Pakistan.

  • ہم پاکستانیوں کا بھی کوئی سٹینڈر نہیں سوزوکی آلٹو دھڑا دھڑ خرید رہے ہیں اور سوزوکی والے وی ایکس وی ایکس آر اور وی ایکس ایل کے نام پہ لوگوں کو لوٹ رہے 660 سی سی گاڑی سترہ لاکھ میں بیچ رہے ہیں اس سے بہتر ہے جاپانی استعمال شدہ خرید لیں جو اس سے بہت ہی بہترین گاڑی ہے گورنمنٹ کو چاہیے بولان کو بند کر دے یا کمپنی کو مجبور کرے اس میں سوزوکی ایوری جیسی سہولیات دے کورین چائنیز ملائشین اور انگلش گاڑیاں مارکیٹ میں آ چکی ہیں انشاءاللہ جلد ہی سوزوکی ھنڈا اور ٹویوٹا کی بدمعاشی ختم ہو جائے گی ان کمپنیوں کو کہا جائے 800 یا ہزار سی سی گاڑیاں لے کر آئیں تا کہ مڈل کلاس زیادہ گاڑیاں خریدے ہر کوئی ایس یو وی نہیں خرید سکتا

    • Very well said Mr zahoor. Asal mn humne hi khod big three bnai hai q k hum hi to inhe Market mn lead karwa rhe e inki low standard car high prices pe le kr..

  • In Pakistan car sellers selling waisted low standard low quality cars in highest prices which already rejected by all over the world specially Suzuki company, I never seen Suzuki cars other than India & Pakistan but also I am surprised peoples are still buying may be they don’t have any alternat choice due to government bad policies and they never checked in these companies prices and quality this situation is really critical and satisfactory.

  • Suzuki toyota will remain until we all die , for your kind info kia sportage front screen available in only 85000 and headlight s only in 195000,
    No local vendor is involved in spareparts for those companies it will take decads to compete toyota and suzuki also these companies dont want to compete them look at their price touching sky also , all are here cut our pockets

    • Mr Sultan thanks for sharing your valid concern. This is a reality we need to understand what they are doing with us. Not only big three making foolish us but Kia, Hyundai as well.

  • Pak Suzuki company ko chhaye k Pakistani people k 7 zulm band kare. China ko initiative step Lena chahye or mehran ka alternate markete main launch Kare ta,k Pak Suzuki ki badma,ashi ka zor toot jaye.

  • As of now i think these sales reflects corporate buying as they have no options to buy car cars for their middle level managment and they do not buy chinese brand and used cars as well. And suzuki has a edge for their entire country service and low maintenance network and resale value. These factors also working for them

  • فیکٹ.. 😂
    پاکستان میں عام آدمی کے لیے کوئی گاڑی نہیں بچی سوائے رکشے کے 😉
