KARACHI: Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) announced on Tuesday that, due to depressed demand, it will observe three days of non-production, every Monday, during the month of January.
January is generally regarded as a month of recovery for auto sales as buyers resume purchases after slowing down their purchasing activities in November and December of each year as a due to a change in the model year.
The company said it would observe “Mondays of the current month as NPDs due to low demand” in a notice to its vendors. Vendors said the PSMC had also updated its fast-selling Alto 660cc car’s production schedule for January by 25 percent.
They said Alto has been one of the main driving forces in the past few months for both Pak Suzuki and the vendors in the wake of sales crash in other vehicles such as Cultus, Swift, Bolan and WagorR.
