The Pakistan Automobile Manufacturers Association compiles car production figures since 1995 and sales of models produced locally since 1998. Given the restrictions on imports, these figures give a pretty accurate picture of the best selling models in the country. The Pakistani car market structure has been very stable throughout the years and only two models have ever been #1 since 1995.
The 1988 Suzuki Mehran (a first generation Suzuki Alto) has been the longest-running leader of the Pakistani car market, being the best selling car in the country from 1995 to 1999 and 2001 to 2008, starting at 8,986 units produced in 1995-1996 and peaking at 37,007 sales in 2007-2008.
The only other model to lead the Pakistani models ranking is the Toyota Corolla, #1 in 1998-1999, 1999-2000, 2008-2009 and 2009-2010. It started at 4,731 units produced in 1995-1996 and finished with 43,510 sales in 2009-2010.
Other successful models include the Suzuki Cultus, a first generation Suzuki Swift (29,837 sales in 2006-2007), Suzuki Alto (21,988 sales in 2006-2007), Suzuki Bolan (17,209 in 2007-2008), Honda City (16,136 in 2005-2006), Suzuki Ravi (13,211 in 2009-2010), Daihatsu Cuore (12,776 in 2006-2007) and Honda Civic (12,352 in 2004-2005).
