Pakistan’s automotive industry continues to face challenges as the country struggles with low economic growth, higher taxes, and a continued devaluation of local currency.
In 2021-22, auto sales increased by 55 % despite the high inflation, and more than 23,500 cars were sold in June 2002 alone. However, car sales dropped by 53% from July-Dec 2023 and only 39500 cars were sold in 6 months. In Dec 2023 only 5,800 cars were sold in Dec 2022, while 16,921 cars were sold.
Pakistan’s automobile sector is showing no signs of improvement soon and it is continuously declining, experts believe that an increase in raw material, higher taxation, soaring inflation, rupee devaluation, and political instability are the main causes of this decline.
Hi there! My name is Kashif Hussain, the lead author of PakDrive. I am a huge car enthusiast and avid traveller. I have a deep passion for exploring the world and experiencing new cultures, and I love nothing more than hitting the open road and discovering new adventures behind the wheel of my favourite car. Whether I’m cruising down a winding mountain road or speeding down the highway, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of the wind and the purr of the engine beneath me. I hope to share my love of cars and travel with all of you through my writing, and I can’t wait to see where the road takes us next.”
