KARACHI – Pak Suzuki Motor Company has announced the first hike for its popular vehicles in 2023 by increasing the prices of various models by Rs100,000-355,000.

While the auto giant has not cited any reason for the hike, mounting inflation and local currency depreciation are the likely reasons.

The price of its most famous model Alto has been soared to Rs 1,859,000 with price difference of160,000, Wagon R VXR is now available at Rs2,629,000, Cultus VXR at Rs3,039,000, Swift GL M/T at Rs3,479,000, and Bolan VX at Rs1,619,000.

With immediate effect, the rising car prices are as follows:

The worsening economic crisis badly affected the auto sector as the country’s leading carmaker Suzuki has not produced even a single vehicle in 2023.

The other leading players are also facing the severe impact of the dilapidating situation, witnessing several non-production days every week.

Earlier, Honda and Toyota also announced price hike for their cars and SUVs.

Honda Atlas Cars hiked prices of its entire line-up, with the increase going as high as Rs550,000. The company cited exchange rate volatility and inflation in material cost as the reason behind the price-increase.

Indus Motor Company, the assembler of Toyota-brand vehicles in Pakistan, notified a hike in car prices across its entire lineup with the increase in the range of Rs280,000-Rs1,210,000.

ISLAMABAD – Pakistani rupee finally ended its losing streak against US dollar on Tuesday, gaining Rs4.43 after massive depreciation over the last week.

During the intra-day trading, the rupee was hovering at 266.75 with an appreciation of around 1.07 percent as talks between Pakistan and IMF underway for a stalled bailout programme.

Earlier on Monday, the rupee plunged by Rs7 and the greenback touched all-time high of Rs272. Last week, the local currency dropped by Rs24.54 in the interbank market – the largest single-day depreciation in more than two decades.

Finance experts linked the rupee’s recovery to exporters offloading some of their proceeds as remittances and export continued days after dollar cap was removed.

The country of over 220 million is facing a worst economic crisis with the forex reserved held by the country’s central bank remaining at critical $3.68 billion which were not enough to cover a month's import.
