Moreover, HACL has increased the price of Honda Civic 1.5L Turbo, 1.8L VTI CVT SR and 1.8L VTI CVT by Rs100,000-126,000 to Rs5.175 million, Rs4.366 million and Rs4.079 million respectively.

However, HACL has not increased the price of Honda City 1.2L MT and CVT models since there is no FED on 1,200 CC vehicles.

Moreover, in a similar move, PSMCL has also pushed up prices of Suzuki automobiles by Rs29,000-Rs150,000.

  1. Auto Industry in Pakistan who are looting Pakistanis for 60 years by only assembling cars in Pakistan and not manufacturing parts in Pakistan which can generate huge employment and reduce car prices which are skyrocketed in recent years and getting out of reach from middle class. I guess car mafia is too big for govt to handle since new cars gifts sent to law makers to keep their mouth shut.
