On the soon-to-be launched all-new Perodua Axia, Zainal Abidin said that the company has converted nearly all previous bookings of the current Axia model to the new one.

“Our sales advisors have contacted our customers on the changes of the all-new Perodua Axia and most of our customers agreed to make the switch,” he said.
