Car Industry Records highest ever sales In June 2022
Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (PAMA) comes with a monthly report revealing the highest ever monthly growth of 24% (28,379 units compared ) in June 2022. Meaning, increasing car and fuel prices didn’t affect the demand – looks surprising.
The report has stated that the auto industry has sold 28,379 units last month. The number game has elevated FY22 industry car sales to a new height of 279,267 units, shattering the previous high record of 258,792 units sold in FY18.
Reason Behind FY22 Highest Sales
At the start of the year, the previous government slashed sales tax and FED and lowered the interest rate which in turn aggravated the sales charts. Afterwards, the government reversed the decision; however, put zero effect on the growing sales trajectory.
