The 8th generation Suzuki Alto 660cc which is currently the bestselling local assembled car in Pakistan has witnessed highest-ever sales in a month in July 2021. Alto, which is the only kei car to be assembled in our country, saw sales of 6,110 units in July which is also the highest-ever monthly sales record not only for Pak Suzuki but for any local assembled car in Pakistan.
The previous highest monthly record was also posted by Alto in September 2019, when it registered sales of 4,924 units breaking the record of Suzuki Mehran which was 4,684 units. This also helped Pak Suzuki to post its highest-ever sales in a month with 15,207 units sold in July 2021.
According to the data released by Pakistan Automobile Manufacturers Association (PAMA), Suzuki Alto saw 37,720 units sold in FY20-21 compared to 30,916 units sold a year earlier rendering a 22% increase. And it just got an ideal start to FY21-22 with record-breaking sales, as Alto enjoys the status of the only mass-produced local assembled small car available in Pakistan.
Pak Suzuki enjoys unchallenged dominance in small car segment which enables the automaker to enjoy a thumping 66% share of Pakistan’s automobile market. As per sources, the company is ramping up production to meet the rising demand which is expected to remain high in forthcoming months following a reduction in prices after the government reduced various duties & taxes in the recently announced Auto Policy 2021-26. Additionally, booking of cars under Roshan Apni Car for overseas Pakistanis having Roshan Digital Account (RDA), has also played its part in the increase in sales of locally assembled vehicles.
