KIA, the famous South-Korean automobile manufacturer and a new entrant in the Pakistani auto market, has done it. Not only did KIA come third in January 2021 car sales, but the car brand also outperformed Honda. Looks like the monopoly of Big 3 Japanese car brands (Suzuki, Toyota, and Honda) is falling.

Lucky Cement Limited’s subsidiary, Lucky Motor Corporation, has revealed in a financial report for 2021 that it produced 22,500 units of its vehicles in FY2021. The corporation’s total production capacity is 50,000 vehicles per anum.

Lucky Motor Corporation (LMC) used 44.6 percent of its maximum production capacity, according to government estimates. The data suggest that LMC moved north of 1500 units every month on average, despite the fact that it did not publish its sales figures in the report.
