Perodua has noted that Malaysia’s three top-selling vehicles year-to-date (YTD) are the Myvi, Axia, and Bezza models, each of which sold 29,313 units, 28,107 units, and 25,416 units, respectively.

Of particular pride to the car manufacturer is the Myvi model, which has been Malaysia’s best-selling car since 2006. “It still remains one of the most affordable cars with advanced safety features in the country,” said the president and chief executive officer of Perodua, Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad. He added that the Myvi model has recently been upgraded with the latest Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite of driver assistance safety systems.

Additionally, Perodua revealed that it has sold 23,203 vehicles in July – up 9.2% from the 21,250 sales made in the previous month. Following the increase, July became the best sales month for Perodua thus far this year, and the latest sales figure has helped to bump the car manufacturer’s YTD volume up to 97,373 units. Perodua also estimated that its July market share stood at 40%, whereas its YTD market share amounted to 42%.

“Since our operations restarted after a two-month Movement Control Order (MCO) closure, our volume has rebounded swiftly, aided by the government’s sales tax exemption which will run until year-end. Should this encouraging trend continues, the healthy volume will enable us to further bolster Malaysia’s automotive ecosystem of suppliers and dealers in this time of need,” said Datuk Zainal Abidin.

It helps, too, that the Penjana economic recovery plan includes 100% sales tax exemptions on locally-assembled cars. For the three Perodua models, this translates to savings between RM723 to RM1,893.

The Malaysia Automotive, Robotics, and IoT Institute (MARii) has previously projected that the automotive ecosystem needs to sell at least 500,000 units this year to ensure its survival for 2020. Datuk Zainal Abidin also commented that Perodua is aware that it needs to work to its fullest capacity to help shore up the Malaysian economy and to ensure that jobs are protected.

Datuk Zainal Abidin further added that as the market leader, Perodua’s utmost priority is to continue providing the best products and services to ensure maximum customer satisfaction. “We are committed to continue offering better value propositions to all Malaysians in the forms of affordability, quality, technology, and the latest advanced features,” he said.
