Delivery Issues and Sales Crash
Toyota Indus Motor Company (IMC) has previously designated non-production days to deal with sluggish CKD imports (NPDs). According to recent reports, IMC is offering a full refund plus a markup to clients who have recently reserved a car.
According to Toyota IMC CEO Ali Asghar Jamali, the economy’s collapse and manufacturing halts are drying up sales and revenue. The current condition of circumstances is adversely affecting the sector.
The business community as a whole voiced similar concerns to the government, requesting that CKD imports begin in order for them to continue operating.
