Toyota buyers are surprised by a price hike of up to Rs1.2 million
The firm ascribed the current rise to the unexpected depreciation of the Pakistani rupee, a large spike in commodity and freight prices, which drove up the rates of completely-knocked-down kits and local component costs, as well as an increase in pricing to the company’s vendors.
Other assemblers are likely to follow suit in the near future.
IMC stated in a circular to its authorised dealers that the situation has made it exceedingly difficult for the firm to maintain existing retail selling prices, forcing it to pass some effect on to the market.
