PETALING JAYA: Perodua, Malaysia’s second largest automobile manufacturer, is aiming to sell 1,600 units per month of the newly launched Myvi XT compact car.
The 1.3-litre Myvi XT comes in two variants: the manual transmission GX1 (priced RM41,936.45) and the auto transmission EZ1 costs RM44,936.45.
All prices are on-the-road with insurance.
The XT is targeted at university students and fresh graduates which is why Perodua has also launched its “What’s Up! Graduate” scheme which offers a voucher worth RM500, a petrol card worth RM500 and a personal accident policy coverage for one year worth RM20,000 (terms and conditions apply). “We believe that the launch of the Myvi XT and the ‘What’s Up! Graduate’ scheme will be a good combo as one is made for the young and the other will assist those starting out in owning a Myvi,” said Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh, Perodua president and CEO.
Myvi, since it was launched in 2005, has sold over 750,000 units, making it the best selling model for Perodua in the last eight years.
“The Perodua Myvi celebrates its ninth anniversary this year and it is Perodua’s flagship model consisting of 50% of our sales since 2006,” said Aminar.
The Myvi XT now comes with two new colours - Lime Green and Dazzling Red, new seat fabric, an improved audio system with USB and Bluetooth connectivity with a silver painted centre cluster and new alloy rims and chrome front grille.
