Maybe it’s the last term of the price hike session as Proton has also increased the prices of its cars. Proton cars recently launched in Pakistan and unfortunately, the company needs to increase the prices due to the current circumstances. Almost all automakers give the same reason for the price hike and the recent fluctuation in the Pakistan rupee value. Automakers are also stuck on the approval of LCs which cause a delay in production. Toyota and Suzuki shut their production plants due to counting the non-productive days. LCs approval by the State Bank of Pakistan is now compulsory to import CKD kits.
