The sales of cars have been adversely impacted by frequent manufacturing halts and rising expenses. Auto sales have somewhat recovered in October, with improvements from Honda, Toyota, and Suzuki compared to last month. Conversely, Hyundai had yet another sharp fall in sales, selling a total of just 486 vehicles.
The top three's sales have somewhat increased from the previous month, but they are still far below their individual monthly averages. However, Suzuki cars top the list this month due to a spike in purchases.
Following is a list of the top five selling vehicles in October:
With recent sales, the 6th Generation Honda City's success is no longer debatable. The Toyota Corolla, one of Pakistan's most well-known vehicles, as well as other subcompact vehicles like the Suzuki Swift and Toyota Yaris, have previously been vanquished by the subcompact sedan.
Honda Atlas Cars Limited (HACL) sold slightly over 1,060 units of the City last month, placing it in fifth place on the list, according to individuals acquainted with the independent sales numbers.
Since the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) began crushing the auto sector with import restrictions, Cultus has been out of the game. To sell 1,129 units of Cultus, Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) has taken advantage of the current uptick in sales.
With these sales, Cultus has moved up to fourth place among the top 5 selling vehicles for the month of October 2022.
Despite its now-hefty price tag, the Toyota Corolla has once again surpassed all other sedans in sales in Pakistan. Given the continued operational recession, Toyota IMC sold about 1,250 Corollas in October 2022, which is a respectable performance for the little vehicle.
Suzuki Swift, which has been on a promising upward trend, outsold numerous reliable sellers to place second in sales last month for the second month in a row.
Swift was the best-selling subcompact family vehicle of October 2022 thanks to PSMC's sales of 1,350 units despite the recent sales slump and production reductions.
The Suzuki Alto is still the most popular automobile in Pakistan, much as we all need oxygen to survive. Despite the manufacturing shortage, PSMC sold a healthy 2,372 units of the Alto in July 2022, making it the best-selling vehicle in Pakistan for the tenth month in a row.
But it's important to note that the Alto is also the most criticized vehicle in Pakistan, with constant complaints about its subpar construction. According to such reasoning, Alto is comparable to a terrible habit that Pakistanis are unable to kick.
