According to industry observers, the recent flood of new cars may have caused such a huge spike in the value and volume of vehicle imports. In the previous year, almost two dozen new cars were released to the Pakistani market, the majority of which are SUVs, but virtually all of them cost more than PKR. 4 million.

The government is turning its attention to encouraging the sale and purchase of smaller, more environmentally friendly automobiles in order to decrease the high import bill.

The All Pakistan Motor Dealers Association (APMDA), on the other hand, is advocating for a change of the import rules to encourage car imports. H.M. Shehzad, the Chairman of the APMDA, wrote to the Ministry of Finance (MOF) around two weeks ago to suggest modifications to the new car policy that would take effect after the presentation of the 2021-22 budget.

He went on to say that the newcomers are also raising costs, delaying car deliveries, and “fleecing the consumers in the form of Own-Money” for early deliveries of their automobiles.

Shehzad proposed that the government encourage the import of automobiles into Pakistan to promote healthy competition in the market and to raise the quality standards of current automakers.

In Georgia, Apple is working with Hyundai’s affiliate, Kia, for US services. With an initial expectation of 100,000 vehicles a year by 2024, Apple plans to start making electric cars. It could further raise this figure to 400,000 units a year.

According to Industry Insider, owing to its electric vehicle model, EGMP, its manufacturing facilities in the United States, Apple is leaning towards Hyundai as a core partner in car production.Kia will handle the production and production of the vehicle, while Apple will manage the self-driving hardware, applications and user interface, battery systems, semiconductors, and the form factor.

Apple and Hyundai talked for a while before the project. More and more, Hyundai admitted, only to cancel later. Hyundai executives are actually allegedly making a fuss over beginning a venture with Apple. Insiders, though, suggest Hyundai is more than willing and see it as a chance for Apple’s loyal base around the world to do favors.
