Pak Suzuki official Spokesperson said the auto sales may come under pressure in coming months after massive jump in price tags.
“We have not passed the full impact of new taxes and duties to the consumers and the company is still bearing the major impact of new budgetary measures,” he claimed.
However, following government intervention, the local assemblers were insulated from the threat of imported vehicles affecting their sales.
Moreover, prices of Ciaz GL MT and GL AT were increased to Rs2.3m and Rs2.5m from Rs2.160m and Rs2.300m.
Bolan and Bolan Cargo Van prices were also been jacked up to Rs1.050m and Rs1.005m from Rs874,000 and Rs840,000.
The company in its letter issued to the authorised dealers attributed the price hike to negative exchange rate impact on account of recent rupee devaluation and new duties/taxes/federal excise duty levied by the government in the fiscal budget.
The company said the hikes would not be apply on pending orders by customers who have failed to deposit their balance payment within tentative delivery date of vehicles.
