Perodua has officially launched the third-generation Perodua Myvi in Mauritius.
Offered in two variants (1.3 G AT and 1.5 H AT) in the country, the Myvi is priced respectively at 699,000 (RM81,300*) and 775,000 (RM90,140*) Mauritian Rupees on-the-road with insurance.
Local distributor Raouf Dusmohamud & Co Ltd gave the Perodua Myvi its Mauritian debut last Friday at the Defi Media Motor Show, which took place at the Swami Vivekananda International Conference Centre over the weekend.
“The third-generation Perodua Myvi has been very well-received in Malaysia and we believe Mauritians will appreciate its many qualities,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“Perodua aims to export 3,270 cars in 2019 – a 50% increase over last year’s 2,184 units. So far this year we have sold over 1,600 units outside Malaysia and launched the Myvi and Axia in Singapore and the Seychelles respectively.
“The Myvi’s Mauritian debut should edge us closer to our year-end export target and boost Perodua’s brand exposure internationally, what with Mauritius being a major tourist destination,” he added.
“With LED headlamps, keyless entry and start, Bluetooth, four or six airbags and stability control standard on both variants, the new Myvi is a very sophisticated and advanced product that Mauritians can truly get excited about,” said Raouf Dusmohamud & Co Ltd's Managing Director Raouf Dusmohamud.
“Plus, we’re sweetening the ownership package for our valued customers by offering free servicing up to 30,000 km with every Myvi purchase, which we are now also extending to all the other Perodua models in our current line-up, namely the Alza, Axia and Bezza,” he added.
Mauritius is the third-generation Myvi’s third export market after Indonesia (where it is sold as the Daihatsu Sirion) and Singapore.
Located in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is one of Perodua’s oldest overseas markets – it has sold nearly 2,400 cars there since 1996, including the Kancil, Rusa, Kembara, Kenari, Kelisa, first- and second-generation Myvi, Viva and presently the Alza, Axia and Bezza.
