CEO Parvez Ghias had stated that he was optimistic to see a revival in demand around the time of Eid-ul-Fitr and September. Well, its September and there are no signs of increasing demand.

Vehicles prices have increased considerably over the year. It is the result of the constant dollar-rupee exchange rate fluctuation, Federal Excise Duty of 2.5-7.5%, customs duty on imported car parts and raw materials, coupled with high interest rates.

Honda had halted production back in July, due to plummeting sale numbers and rising prices. Indus Motors had also previously shut production for 8 days in July, and 2 days in August.
