KUALA LUMPUR: Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua) has delivered 28,000 Myvis, nearly half of its 60,000 orders collected so far as the compact carmaker further increases production of the compact car.
“We thank our customers and the Malaysian public for their strong support of the Myvi, and we will continue to improve the delivery time for our valued customers,” Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Dr Zahari Husin said in a statement today.
Zahari added that customers who place their bookings now will most likely receive their Myvi in time for the Raya holidays.
“To date, Perodua has fulfilled all new Myvi orders made in 2017,” he said.
Zahari said Perodua estimates its market share in February, 2018 to surpass 41 per cent with 17,100 vehicles sold against an estimated 41,100-unit total industry volume (TIV).
Perodua said its car sales derived from the 17,100 units sold including 6,500 Myvis, 5,000 Axias, 3,700 Bezzas and 1,900 Alzas.
On a year-on- year basis, Perodua’s sales performance improved by 13.1 per cent to 34,800 units against 30,800 vehicles sold in the first two months of 2017.
Perodua targets to sell 209,000 units this year – a two per cent increase from the 204,900 units sold in 2017.
“For enquiries or bookings, we ask our customers to deal only with authorised Perodua personnel at authorised Perodua outlets,” said Zahari.
