November 3, 2020, Rawang – Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua), the largest national carmaker in Malaysia, has recorded its highest monthly sales with 26,852 units sold in October 2020, right after setting an all-time monthly sales record of 25,035 units a month ago.
“In September, we sold more vehicles in a month than in our entire 27-year history and now, we have gone even further.
“This milestone is important to us in many ways; it underscores our commitment towards delivering our vehicles to their rightful owners as fast as possible while at the same time doing our part to rejuvenate the automotive eco-system.
“In October alone, we purchased some RM 600 million worth of parts from local suppliers, thus creating an enormous economic multiplier effect on the local auto eco-system, who too, has been impacted by the pandemic we are now facing,” said its president and chief executive officer Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad in a statement.
The automotive eco-system includes direct and indirect sectors, such as automotive component suppliers, authorised dealers, stockists, agencies, and contractors. Indirect, yet crucial partners include financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies.
“In terms of production capacity, we are on average at 98 percent in October 2020 with 26,362 vehicles – which is also our highest-ever monthly production figure – produced at our manufacturing facilities here in Sungai Choh,” Zainal said.
Perodua sold 8,052 Myvi, 6,738 Axia, 6,895 Bezza, 3,193 Aruz and 1,974 Alza in October. The top three models maintained its lead in their respective segments.
“Our strategy moving forward is to further leverage on our value offerings and quality in both our products and services for the Malaysian public. In terms of vehicle maintenance, rest assured that we have sufficient parts to meet your every need as most of them were made locally.
“We are working to maintain this sales and production momentum to ensure that deliveries remain high and our customers are satisfied by providing affordability for all our products and services,” Zainal revealed.
To further reward its customers, Perodua is introducing a cash redemption of up to RM 1,500 for the Perodua Aruz (with terms and conditions apply) throughout November, on top of the current tax exemption amount.
In addition, the company is also offering cash rebates of up to RM 2,000 for its pre-owned vehicles until December 31, 2020. This offer is only available at the Perodua KL sales outlet located in Jalan Pahang, Kuala Lumpur.
