Perodua Posts Record Sales In July 2020
The Perodua Myvi, Axia and Bezza continue to be Malaysia’s top three best sellers.
Perodua has registered another record sales month in July, with 23,203 Perodua vehicles sold.
The sales figure in July breaks the record already set last month in June, leading to a total of 97,373 new Peroduas finding owners to date this year.
Leading the sales charge is the ever-popular Perodua Myvi, with almost 29,313 sold from January to July. This impressive sales figure for Malaysia’s best selling vehicle since 2006 is partly attributed to its latest refresh which includes the Perodua’s latest Advanced Safety Assists (ASA) 2.0 active safety suite.
Perodua’s smaller models within its lineup also posted healthy sales figures. Both the Axia and Bezza having sold 28,107 and 25,416 units respectively to date this year. These sales figures mean that the Axia and Bezza retain the title of second and third best selling vehicles in Malaysia.
With both Proton and Perodua both setting sales records this month, the auto industry in Malaysia at least looks to have rebounded pretty fast from having near-zero sales but a few months ago.

“The Perodua Myvi, Malaysia’s best-selling vehicle every year since 2006, has recently been upgraded with the latest Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite of driver assistance safety systems. It remains one of the most affordable cars with advanced safety features in the country,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“Since our operations restarted after a two-month Movement Control Order (MCO) closure, our volume has rebounded swiftly, aided by the government’s sales tax exemption which will run until year-end.

According to Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) estimates, a total industry volume (TIV) of at least 500,000 units is needed this year to ensure the continued survival of the automotive eco-system.
“Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, we understand that we must work to our fullest capacity to help shore up the Malaysian economy and ensure jobs are protected.
“As the market leader, Perodua’s utmost priority is to continue providing the best products and services to ensure maximum customer satisfaction. We are committed to continue offering better value propositions to all Malaysians in the forms of affordability, quality, technology and the latest advanced features,” said Dato’ Zainal.
