KUALA LUMPUR: Perodua scored a daily record sales of 5,027 cars on Nov 30, the highest ever registered on a day, as it achieved 23,199 cars sold during the month.
President and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad said the November sales represented a slight normalising from the previous two record months of 25,035 units in September and 26,852 units in October.
“Yet the accomplishment is impressive given the challenging economic climate and new normal operating procedures brought about by Covid-19. And our 5,027-unit one-day record shows what resilience, persistence and adaptability can bring, ” he added.
He said the cars sold comprised 6,295 Myvis, 6,318 Axias, 6,224 Bezzas, 2,617 Aruz and 1,665 Alzas.
“Perodua has sold over 195,000 cars so far this year. Based on its sales momentum, the carmaker is on track to meet its 210,000-unit year-end registration target, ” he said.
Zainal said Perodua had two main priorities, of which the first was to ensure as many of its customers could get their cars before year-end to enjoy the sales tax-exempt prices.
The second was to further bolster the Malaysian automotive ecosystem with its economies of scale in these hard times.
“Over 90% of our components are locally-sourced, and coupled with our sales volume, this generates significant business for Malaysian component suppliers and helps them sustain jobs, ” Zainal said.
