By THE STAR | 27 April 2015

PETALING JAYA: Perodua sales for the first quarter ended March 31 jumped 30% to 57,200 units from 44,024 units in the corresponding quarter last year due to strong demand for its current models.

Perodua also posted its highest monthly sales record of 22,500 units in March.

“March represented our highest monthly sales record with an expected market share of 34% based on our estimated total industry volume of 65,500 units in March,” president and chief executive officer Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh (pic) said in a statement.

The strong performance was partly due to the strong demand for the Axia, which has collected over 100,000 bookings since the public started making orders on Aug 15, 2014. As of March 31, Perodua had delivered over 60,000 units of the Axia.
