Perodua aims to shorten waiting period for Myvi

Perodua sold 168,200 vehicles during the first nine months of this year — an increase of 11% compared with 151,600 vehicles in the same period in 2017.

KUALA LUMPUR: Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua) is striving to shorten the waiting time for Myvi to a more reasonable period.

Its president and CEO, Aminar Rashid Salleh, said until the end of September, about 22,000 new Perodua Myvi units had yet to be delivered to customers.

“We are still not able to determine the full delivery period.

“But our assembly lines have started production and the delivery process will begin soon,” he said in a statement today.

Aminar said Perodua sold 168,200 vehicles during the January-September period this year — an increase of 11% compared with 151,600 vehicles in the same period in 2017.

He said the sales increase could be attributed to the positive response to the new Perodua Myvi and other models — Axia, Bezza and Alza.

Axia has sold 53,700 units, Bezza 38,100 units and Alza 18,400 units so far this year.
