The Suzuki Cultus will reportedly no longer be sold in Pakistan by Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC). One of the company’s best-selling vehicles may be discontinued in the coming months, according to a report by PakWheels, which cited a source.

The company intends to stop selling the Suzuki Cultus in Pakistan in order to promote the Suzuki Swift, which has just been introduced. The firm desired that consumers turn to the new Swift because “Cultus was hanging midway between sales of Alto and Swift.” The source was cited by PakWheels.

It further stated that Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) wanted to increase sales of the Suzuki Alto. The Suzuki Alto sold 9,814 units in March 2022, 5,009 units in April, and then a small increase to 5,461 units in May 2022, according to the Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association (PAMA).

The Suzuki Cultus will no longer be sold in Pakistan, but Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) has not yet officially announced this. The Suzuki Cultus is one of the company’s best-selling vehicles and was just introduced in 2019, thus it seems quite improbable that they will move forward with the choice.

It is important to note that on social media, there have been reports that Suzuki will rerelease “The Boss” alias Mehran for a very low cost. However, these speculations are untrue, and after being phased out in 2019, everyone’s favorite hatchback is not making a comeback.

A few days back, Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) will be discontinuing its second-generation Swift variant in Pakistan, almost 12 years after its launch, while bookings for the Cultus have also been temporarily suspended, multiple dealers told Business Recorder.

The company had announced through a notification in August last year that Swift, the second-generation hatchback, will be discontinued after August 2021.

The halt in production is also being witnessed in India where the country’s top car maker Maruti Suzuki said that the global chip shortage will hurt production at its plants in the states of Haryana and Gujarat in September.
