Perodua hits highest monthly sales market share, estimates show – Business News


KUALA LUMPUR: Based on estimates, a sales volume of 19,693 units in January against a total industry volume of 43,930 units will give Perodua its highest-ever monthly market share of over 40%.

The car manufacturer added that all Perodua models retained their leads in their respective market segments in January, with 9,029 Myvis, 4,085 Axias, 2,776 Bezzas and 1,803 Alzas

“While we defer to the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA)’s numbers, we are cautiously optimistic that for January 2018, our monthly market share is the highest ever
in our history.

“This was spurred by deliveries of the new Myvi, as well as continued strong demand for our other models,” said Perodua President and CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh on Monday.

He added that the new Myvi has recorded 48,000 bookings to date with nearly 20,000 units already delivered.

Aminar also said that Perodua is looking to purchase more than RM5bil in components and parts, mainly from local vendors, which will give a boost to the local automotive ecosystem.
