The vehicle production in the next Fiscal Year would be even greater as many new automakers will also be manufacturing cars, jeeps, and light commercial vehicles to meet the industry demand, which is still constrained by lack of production.

Now coming to the two-wheeler segment, this particular sector has also seen growth. As per the stats released by Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS), the local manufacturer has manufactured 2,825,073 units in the Fiscal Year 2017-18, up by 12.97% compared to the Fiscal Year 2016-17.
