RAWANG: There were around 22,000 new Perodua Myvi units yet to be delivered as of end-September.
“We have yet to ascertain the full delivery timeframe but our manufacturing arm has begun production and deliveries will be forthcoming soon. We offer our sincere apologies to the affected customers for the wait,” said Perodua president and CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh.
Between January and September this year, Perodua sold 168,200 vehicles – an 11% jump over the 151,600 vehicles it sold in the same period in 2017.
“The sales jump can be attributed to the positive response for the new Perodua Myvi as well as for our other models – the Axia, Bezza and Alza – which sold some 53,700 units; 38,100 units and 18,400 units respectively this year so far,” Datuk (Dr) Aminar said.
However, Perodua sold only approximately 9,500 vehicles in total for September due to the Myvi production halt that began in August, attributed to a technical issue at one of its vendors.
