Toyota Corolla Car Sales

It wouldn’t be wrong to say Pakistan’s economy is recovering. The improvement in security situation across the country and low interest rate and Bank’s car financing has left the automobile industry booming. The emergence of cab sevice such as Uber, Careem or Daewoo has led to shoot in car sales in Pakistan.

The sales for year 2016-17 has reached 185,781 units. It has broken previous years record which was set at 181,145 units. It has also broken the six years old record of 164,650 units set in 2007-08.

The current financial year is one of the best period for the automobile industry of Pakistan. The demand for local car has sky-rocketed. It has grown so much that auto manufacturers can’t keep up with the demand, which has led to a vacuum in the market.

The sales of locally assembled car have increased 4,636 units than the previous year according a report by PAMA. The sales figure haven’t reached its maximum point and could be increased further. Indus Motor Company, Pak Suzuki and Honda Cars have failed to cope up with the exponentially increasing demand. They have also hired extra staff. The sales are recording only in economic cars. Figure doesn’t take into account imported cars.
