Perodua wants to stay far ahead of its rivals with safety features and cabin technology and so they have not spared any expense to bring to Malaysia compact car buyers a world class product.
At the time of writing this, Perodua had already received more than 4,300 plus advance bookings from customers nationwide for this latest Perodua Myvi in just 9 days.
This New Perodua Myvi is produced in two engine variants which is 1.3-litre and 1.5-litre and this time around there is only an all new automatic gearbox for all variants.
The previous Perodua Myvi used a standard automatic gearbox however with this 2021 model Perodua Myvi you will get a dual mode CVT ‘gearbox’ which provides better ratios for better fuel economy.
If you buy this latest Perodua Myvi you can expect a higher level of active safety with the new A.S.A. 3.0 driver assistance system plus you will get new cabin features and a revised look starting from the steering wheel to the seat trim and more. Selling prices range from RM45,700 and RM58,800 (excluding insurance).
Press Release: The New Perodua Myvi, which cost RM50 million to develop, has advance technology, enhanced intelligent safety features, improved fuel economy, sporty new looks and a new colour.
“We are thankful to our customers and to all Malaysians for the support shown to both Perodua and the New Myvi,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
He said that Perodua is expecting to register 6,000 units monthly, which would enable the compact car company to maintain sales interest in the Myvi moving forward.
“The Myvi has struck all the right cords with Malaysians and has been widely accepted by the people. This new offering is to ensure that our valued customers are getting the best value as possible,” Dato’ Zainal said.
The New Myvi variants include the 1.5 litre AV (Advance Variant), 1.5 litre H variant, a 1.5 litre X variant, a1.3 litre G and 1.3L G Basic.
The New Myvi is priced from RM45,700 to RM58,800 (without insurance and excluding Sales Tax.)
The launch of the New Myvi was within the same week as the launch of the third generation Myvi on 16 November 2017. The Myvi, which was first introduced in May 2005 have sold some 1.3 million units so far and of that number, the third generation Myvi sold 277,329 units.
Notable changes to the Myvi include an upgrade to its safety system, which features the Perodua Smart Drive Assist (PSDA) system which was designed with the safety of the driver and pedestrian in mind
PSDA include the Advance Safety Assist version 3.0, adaptive cruise control (ACC), Lane Keep Assist (LKS), Blind Spot Monitoring System (BSM) and the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) (Available in all variants except the lower 1.3L G variant)
Which means except for one of the Myvi G variant, all other variants now have Autonomous Level 2 technology.
“This is the first time in Malaysian history that a car company is offering an Autonomous Level 2 technology to a model under a RM60,000 price tag,” Dato’ Zainal said.
All variants under the New Myvi will feature a new transmission which is the Dual Mode CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission), which is replacing the 4-speed transmission.
“The Dual Mode CVT will further enhance transmission efficiency, is light weight and compact sized, provide powerful and smooth acceleration at low speeds and will make the vehicle quieter while increasing fuel efficiency,” Dato’ Zainal said.
He said that with these improvements, the New Myvi will be able to have a 5 percent improvement or an additional 1km for every litre of fuel as well as a 20 percent improved acceleration.
“The increased fuel efficiency of the New Myvi is our commitment towards lessening our impact to the environment and working towards our goal of becoming a carbon neutral organisation,” Dato’ Zainal said.
The New Myvi also features new colour, Cranberry Red, which is only available for the AV. Other colours include Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Lava Red (not available for the AV), Granite Grey, and Electric Blue.
On the overall industry outlook this year, Dato’ Zainal said the challenges brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic is still present and is impacting vehicle production with intermittent stops to halt the spread of the virus.
The semiconductor chip supply shortage is still an issue for manufacturers worldwide as chip makers struggle to keep up with demand, he added.
“These challenges have taken a toll on our production volume, while we are unable to reveal how much of an impact at the moment, suffice to say that Perodua will not be able to meet its 214,000 vehicles sales target set earlier,” Dato’ Zainal said.
“That being said, demand for our vehicles are still healthy with a sizeable order book and well as an expected sustained demand moving forward due to the continued sales tax exemption. Because of this we expect both production and sales to have a strong recovery next year,” Dato’ Zainal explained.
Meanwhile, Perodua is also introducing another value-added all-inclusive vehicle subscription service called Perodua EZ MOBi whereby this service will assist companies in managing their vehicle fleet from the time of procurement, servicing and fleet replacement.
“In essence, EZ MOBi represents Perodua’s value contribution towards its customers’ growing mobility needs. The overall package includes vehicle registration, insurance renewal, servicing cost, part replacement cost, courtesy car, vehicle disposal and replacement under one subscription plan,” Dato’ Zainal said.
“The value offering of this service is that Perodua EZ MOBi provides end-to-end convenience to our customers as various packages are available to fit each client’s mobility needs,” Dato’ Zainal added.
One of Perodua EZ MOBi’s uniqueness is that its subscription plan factors in all costs of owning and operating vehicles except fuel usage.
For now, this new service is currently available in the Klang Valley and only for business entities and government agencies.
