HCAR’s Performance

HCAR has had an eventful FY2022 due to various factors. One of them was the arrival of new automakers and cars that stunted the demand of its top sellers, namely, Honda City and Civic.

However, between July 2021 and March 2022, HCAR regained its market share, with the launch of new Honda Civic and City models. By the 10th month of FY2022, the company has sold 227,822 cars, recording an increase of 50 percent in sales compared to the same time last year.

However, time will tell whether HCAR can keep up its profitability as all automakers are expecting a decline in sales due to ongoing price hikes and operational cost increases.

Furthermore, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has also reduced the finance tenure on cars with engines bigger than 1000cc. It bears mentioning that auto financing enables a large number of car sales. Like other carmakers, HCAR’s sales are also likely to sustain a blow due to SBP’s restrictions.
