As New Year has begun its course, different news has started to reach us. First, the price of petrol went down and then a little cut in the electricity rates, but Pak Suzuki has different plans. They have increased the prices of their cars by almost PKR 40,000 and 322,000 respectively.
A few months ago, in the year 2018, Pak Suzuki already hiked the prices of its cars in the wake of the dropping value of the Pakistani Rupee against the Dollar. These new hiked prices have also come under the same pattern.
The dollar is going up, and Rupee is going down, and Pak Suzuki is trying to cover its loss, I guess.
Pak Suzuki has already decided to discontinue the production of Mehran by March 2019 and plans to introduce locally manufactured Suzuki Alto 2019 660cc in the country.
Pak Suzuki has already forwarded the circular regarding the new price lists to all of its retailers all over the country. The new price list is set below with comparison with old prices.
