Perodua announced that it has sold 37,400 vehicles in the first two months of 2019, which is 7.3% up from the 34,800 vehicles sold in the same period in 2018.
“The heightened sales performance is a result of our efforts to further improve our delivery times,” said Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director Dato’ Dr Zahari Husin.
In the first two months of the year, Perodua sold around 15,000 Myvis, 10,100 Axias, 5,900 Bezzas, 3,600 Aruz, and 2,700 Alzas, while in terms of production, 36,500 vehicles rolled out – almost 6.2% more than 34,375 in the same period last year.
“While we defer to the Malaysian Automotive Association’s numbers, we estimate our year-to-date market share to stand at 41%.”
“Meanwhile, the Perodua Aruz continues to rake in orders strongly with over 13,000 bookings captured since early-January,” added Dato’ Dr Zahari.
The Perodua Aruz is offered in two variants – X and AV – with 85% of bookings currently for the AV.
“We have adjusted our production to reduce the waiting time for the Aruz. This will continue in March as well.
Perodua is currently holding a nationwide roadshow called ‘Aruz On Tour’, which began 13 February in Selangor and has travelled to Johor Bahru and Kota Bharu. Kuching is the final stop – 8-10 March at The Spring Shopping Mall.
