Due to ongoing supply and production issues, Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) on Thursday said it will no longer accept orders for motorcycles pending further notice. The company cited a lack of inventory as the reason for the shutdown.
The suspension of bookings is effective from today. In a letter to dealers, the company said:
Under current economic conditions, import-based supply chain constraints and uncertain production capabilities, we are unable to serve new customers. Therefore, we will stop booking our motorcycle products from January 20, 2023, for now. However, bookings will continue as the situation becomes favorable to serve new customers.
Shutdown of all CBUs
PSMC has also quietly removed imported Completely Built Unit (CBU) cars from its official website.
A visit to the company’s website shows that currently only locally assembled models such as Alto, WagonR, Cultus, Swift, Bolan and Ravi are on display.
PSMC’s CBU range consists of Vitara, Jimny and APV. The move is likely due to weak sales as the auto industry has struggled in recent months. This development follows the discontinuation of Ciaz and Mega Carry by PSMC.
The PSMC has been contacted by various media outlets for a comment on this matter. Analysts and enthusiasts believe that ongoing problems in car imports and economic turmoil are responsible for this development.
