Perodua had a strong November in terms of sales, as it achieved its highest vehicle registration ever in one day. On 30 November, Perodua managed to register 5,027 vehicles, its most in a single day. This number makes up part of its November 2020 sales of 23,119 cars. Thus far, Perodua has sold over 195,000 cars. It had a vehicle registration target of 210,000 units for this year and is confident of meeting its target based on its current sales momentum.
“Our November sales represents a slight normalising from the previous two record months we had – 25,035 units in September and 26,852 units in October,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
“Yet the accomplishment is impressive given the challenging economic climate and new normal operating procedures brought about by COVID-19. And our 5,027-unit one-day record shows what resilience, persistence and adaptability can bring,” he added.
For November 2020, its breakdown of sales by model is Axia: 6318; Myvi: 6,295; Bezza: 6,224; Aruz: 2,617; and Alza: 1,665.
“Perodua’s two main priorities at present are to ensure as many of our valued customers as possible can get their cars before year-end to enjoy the sales tax-exempt prices; and to further bolster the Malaysian automotive ecosystem with our economies of scale in these hard times. Over 90% of our components are locally sourced, and coupled with our sales volume, this generates significant business for Malaysian component suppliers and helps them sustain jobs,” said Dato’ Zainal.
“The completed cars are then distributed through Malaysia’s largest car sales network, the majority of which constitute independent dealers that benefit greatly from the business, and even more if they do servicing and repairs as well,” he added.
“Perodua is proud of its national duty and will continue to serve all Malaysians’ mobility needs with quality vehicles that are safe, practical, efficient and offer the best value, while pushing the boundaries of technology for the masses in the future,” said Dato’ Zainal.
