Perodua Sets Yet Another New Sales Record In October
Surpassing the record that Perodua just smashed last month.
Perodua has just posted yet another record breaking sales month in October, selling 26,852 cars within the last month. Even more impressively, this highest-ever monthly sales figure comes ahead of a prior record-breaking month in September, having shifted 25,035 units then.
Over the previous month, a total of ‘8,052 Myvis, 6,738 Axias, 6,895 Bezzas, 3,193 Aruz and 1,974 Alzas’ left the Perodua dealerships with new owners. This staggering sales figure also continues to mean that the Myvi, Axia and Bezza continue to hold their respective sales title of best-selling B-segment hatchback, A-segment hatchback and A-segment sedan locally.
Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad, President and CEO of Perodua commended this momentous milestone for Perodua, going on to tout the fact that the Malaysian automaker has purchased some RM 600 million worth of parts and components from local suppliers in October alone. Hence cultivating an ‘enormous economic multiplier effect’ that will in-turn benefit the local automotive ecosystem that was once ravaged by the pandemic that is still ongoing.
Aside from sales, Perodua has also smashed another record in October with its production figure. The month prior saw 26,362 Perodua vehicles roll of the Sungai Choh production line, which is equivalent to an impressive 98% of its production capacity at the facility. An impressive feat any way you look at it, that is made even more praise-worthy considering the new standard operating procedures which were implemented as early as May in an effort to combat the pandemic.
Throughout November, Perodua will be offering an additional RM 1,500 cash redemption on its Aruz 7-seat SUV on top of the current sales tax exemption amount. Cash rebates of up to RM 2,000 are also on offer for Perodua pre-owned vehicles in its Jalan Pahang, KL outlet. This offer is valid till the end of the year.
PRESS RELEASE: Perodua recorded its highest-ever monthly sales with 26,852 cars in October 2020, just after setting an all-time monthly sales record of 25,035 units in September 2020.
“In September, we sold more vehicles in a month than in our entire 27-year history and now, we have gone even further,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
“This milestone is important to us in many ways; it underscores our commitment towards delivering our vehicles to their rightful owners as fast as possible while at the same time doing our part to rejuvenate the automotive eco-system.
“In October alone, we purchased some RM600 million worth of parts from local suppliers, thus creating an enormous economic multiplier effect on the local auto eco-system, who too, has been impacted by the pandemic we are now facing,” he added.
The automotive eco-system includes direct and indirect sectors, such as automotive component suppliers, authorised dealers, stockists, agencies and contractors. Indirect, yet crucial partners include financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies.
“In terms of production capacity, we are on average at 98% in October 2020 with 26,362 vehicles – which is also our highest-ever monthly production figure – produced at our manufacturing facilities here in Sungai Choh,” Dato’ Zainal said.
“These achievements were accomplished under the new standard operating procedures (SOP) followed by Perodua and our partners. These include working from home and mandatory testing for those in red zones – on top of the original SOPs introduced in May.
“With the commitment of the suppliers, our authorised dealers were able to sell more vehicles and more importantly, ensure our customers’ happiness as their Perodua vehicles were delivered in the best possible time,” he added.
Perodua sold 8,052 Myvis, 6,738 Axias, 6,895 Bezzas, 3,193 Aruz and 1,974 Alzas in October. The top three models remain Malaysia’s best-selling cars so far this year.
“Our strategy moving forward is to further leverage on our value offerings and quality in both our products and services for the Malaysian public. In terms of vehicle maintenance, rest assured that we have sufficient parts to meet your every need as most of them were made locally,” Dato’ Zainal said.
“We are working to maintain this sales and production momentum to ensure that deliveries remain high and our customers are satisfied by providing affordability for all our products and services,” he added.
To further reward its customers, Perodua is introducing a cash redemption of up to RM1,500 for the Perodua Aruz (terms and conditions apply) throughout November, on top of the current tax exemption amount.
In addition, Perodua is also offering cash rebates of up to RM2,000 for its pre-owned vehicles until 31 December 2020. This offer is only available at the Perodua KL sales outlet located on Jalan Pahang, Kuala Lumpur.
