Kia Cars Prices Increased after Federal Government

The federal government yesterday imposed the 25% General Sales Tax (GST) on luxury items. The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) issued a new sales tax notification under SRO 297(1)/2023 confirming this new tax today. But, some vehicles that were not 1400cc cars are also facing this tax application. This tax slab included all locally assembled 1400cc and above cars, but the important thing to notice was that the locally manufactured or assembled SUVs and CUVs, even the ones with engine displacement lower than 1400cc were included and that is why we were expecting a new price hike. And ss expected it happened today as Kia car prices have been increased.

In a notification, Kia Lucky Motors said that due to increase in the Sales Tax rate from 18% to 25%, the ex-factory prices effective from March 8, 2023 have been revised.
