After Toyota closed its Pakistani factory, Suzuki Motors also stopped production of it’s vehicles and bikes in the country. The reason given by the Pak Suzuki Motors is that there is a barrier to import spare parts and raw materials to produce its cars. The main hurdle in this regard is the pre-approval that car companies need to get from the State Bank of Pakistan for imports.

Earlier, the company announced plans to shut down production at its Pakistan factories from 2-Jan-2023 to 6-Jan-2023. The current period has been extended from January 9 to January 13, 2023. The production is not only for cars but also for Suzuki motorcycles in Pakistan.

The pre-approval mechanism is not an obstacle at all. But approval delays (common in most government departments) are the main reason companies face shortages of spare parts and raw materials (Toyota and Suzuki). As a result, they are unable to maintain adequate inventory levels for production.

Pak Suzuki’s Declining Sales in Pakistan

If we look at the sales of Suzuki cars in Pakistan, according to the PAMA car sales report, it has decreased compared to November-2022, except for the Alto, which has a good sales performance in the country. The closing of the factory will further reduce the company’s sales.

Suzuki’s Bike sales figures are not negative (according to the latest PAMA bike sales report). Mainly because of the 0% registration plan of Suzuki bikes, this allows consumers to buy motorcycles with easy monthly installments. It is worth mentioning that the company recently launched the Suzuki GSX 125 in Pakistan. This production shutdown will also affect its sales. However, the company has stopped bookings for this bike.


Overall, it is very bad news for the automobile industry as major manufacturers have to close their factories in Pakistan. However, there is one important thing to note. Other companies followed the same policy but did not close their factories.
