“That being said, the improvements in volume for both production and sales indicate that the ecosystem is moving as planned.

“Aside from focusing on delivering our outstanding orders, we will also be launching an all-new Perodua Axia soon to further excite the market. We believe the value proposition will be well accepted by Malaysians,” he said.

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 Perodua 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.
