Car premium in Pakistan has skyrocketed; here’s a list

Small Cars Pakistan

With the improving economy of Pakistan, the country’s middle class has seen an exponential growth, which has birthed a massive demand for vehicles. Add in the growing popularity of ride-hailing services into this mix and we have an incredible -never seen before- boom in Pakistani auto industry.

On the contrary, where local auto manufacturers are registering record sales, the wait time for new cars have really plummeted to an unprecedented high. The simple fact is that auto manufacturers can’t keep up with the demand, which has led to a vacuum in the market. This has resulted in an exponential increase in the premium values of locally assembled cars.

Following is a list of the current Premium rates and booking times on locally assembled cars.

    Currently BIG three unable to meet demand.
