These Are the Best Selling Cars of 2022

Pakistan’s auto sector has observed a drastic slump in sales in H2 2022 due to the massive economic downturn. The decline has been attributed to non-approval of letters of credit (LCs), import restrictions, price inflation, production cuts, and restrictions on auto financing.

Pak-Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) remains the top car seller in 2022, having sold a total of 125,947 units in a year, while Honda Atlas Cars (HCAR) and the Toyota Indus Motor Company (IMC) sold 31,007 and 54,768 units respectively.

The demand for cars has become considerably low in recent months due to the economic turmoil. Nonetheless, there are certain vehicles that have remained incredibly successful in the local market, compared to others.

Here’s a list of top five best-selling cars from 2022:
