Top five hottest selling cars in Pakistan 2022
The automotive industry made minor sales progress in February 2022.
Reports state that the Pakistani auto sector has witnessed impressive sales figures in 2021. However, the recent price hikes following the increased taxes and the restrictions on car financing have dampened this growth in sales.
The automotive industry made minor sales progress in February 2022. Companies including Toyota Indus Motor Company (IMC) and Honda Atlas Cars Limited (HACL) reported considerably low sales compared to last month.
In comparison, Hyundai Nishat and Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) saw a rise in sales, which also affected the overall figures as shown in the data shared by Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (PAMA).
Here are the top five best selling vehicles of February 2022:
1. Suzuki Cultus
Cultus has observed turbulent sales in Pakistan lately. The vehicle had fewer sales than the Corolla and the City for the past two months. In February 2022, PSMC sold 1,694 units of the Cultus.
2. Suzuki Wagon R
PSMC sold a remarkable 1,646 units of the Wagon R. These figures have landed the Wagon R among the best-selling vehicles in Pakistan for the second consecutive time this year, making it a consistent top performer.
3. Suzuki Alto
Being on the number one spot for the past several months, Suzuki Alto has become a fitting replacement for the legendary Mehran. PSMC sold 7,175 units of the Alto, making it the number one best-selling car in Pakistan for the second consecutive month since the beginning of 2022.
4. Toyota Corolla
Despite having a relatively hefty price tag, Toyota Corolla has reclaimed the ‘best-selling sedan’ title in Pakistan, beating Honda City. Toyota IMC sold 2,203 units of the Corolla in February 2022.
5. Honda City
The new Honda City has dethroned Toyota Yaris as the best-selling subcompact sedan in Pakistan. According to our sources, HACL sold 2,146 units in February 2022. People have found the 6th gen City to be a massive upgrade over its predecessor — the fifth generation City. Although, its popularity will likely persuade HACL to keep it on sale in Pakistan for another decade.
According to experts, there is a significant difference in sales figures between the two years – 2021 and 2022. However, it is pertinent to mention that the demand for cars in Pakistan remains robust despite the rise in prices.
