Why Car Prices in Pakistan are Higher than rest of the World?

Although Pakistan is a huge automobile market but the auto industry of the country has not expanded as per market demand. In spite of being the 6th most populous country in the world, local vehicle manufacturers are very less. Lack of competition in the auto industry is mainly due to the existence of just three assemblers; Toyota, Suzuki and Honda. 
Cars prices in Pakistan are High

There were only few auto assembly industries in Pakistan until last year but now the scenario is being changed when the new international automakers attracted towards Pakistani auto market and they are setting up their assembly units in Pakistan. 

Car prices in Pakistan are higher and standards are comparatively low. If anyone wants to by a luxury car like Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Land Cruiser or BMW in Pakistan he has to pay a good amount of money while economy class cars are also costlier than the rest of the world.
