Fuel prices and crippling automobile prices have drastically reduced sales. Honda, Toyota, and Suzuki all reported much higher sales figures in November compared to the same month last year. With just 441 vehicles sold, Hyundai, on the other hand, saw yet another dramatic fall.
Despite a significant increase from the previous month, Pak Suzuki and Honda Atlas sales are still far below their corresponding monthly averages. However, this month's top sellers are Suzuki cars as a result of a spike in demand.
Here are the top-selling vehicles in November 2022:
Disclaimer: non-PAMA members Kia, Changan, Proton, Haval, MG, Prince-DFSK, and United did not provide their official sales data.
Sales of the Toyota Corolla were below average in November 2022 compared to usual.
Recent figures from the Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (PAMA) show that the Toyota Indus Motor Company (IMC) sold just over 1,100 Corollas in the last month, a 10% fall in sales from the previous month.
With that, Honda City has supplanted Toyota Corolla as the month's best-selling sedan, overtaking Toyota Corolla.
Since the State Bank of Pakistan's (SBP) import restrictions began to decimate the auto sector, Cultus has been out of style. The Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) was able to sell 1,136 units of the Cultus thanks to the recent uptick in sales, which is a slight gain over the previous month.
With this number, Cultus has moved up to the fourth rank among the top 5 selling vehicles for the month of October 2022.
The 6th Generation Honda City's sales have solidified its position as one of Pakistan's most well-liked family vehicles. The Toyota Corolla, Pakistan's most popular sedan, as well as other subcompacts, were trounced once more by the subcompact sedan.
Honda Atlas Cars Limited (HACL) sold just over 1,200 units in the City last month, moving it up to third place on the list, according to sources acquainted with independent sales numbers.
Suzuki Swift has overtaken a number of reliable sellers to move up to second place in sales for the third time in a row, maintaining its high level of popularity.
Despite the decline in car production and demand, PSMC sold 2,250 Swifts in November 2022, making it the best-selling subcompact family vehicle.
The Suzuki Alto is still the most popular vehicle in Pakistan when the sun rises in the east. Despite the manufacturing shortage, PSMC sold a commendable 7,255 units of the Alto last month, making it the best-selling car in Pakistan for the 11th straight month this year.
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 horrible addiction that Pakistanis are unable to overcome.
