Perodua Targets 6,000 Bezza Deliveries, 19,000 Orders Received So Far
Perodua reached another milestone as nearly 6,000 Bezzas are in the process of delivery by today, while bookings for the carmaker’s first compact sedan reached 19,000 units.
The breakdown of deliveries are 42% for the Perodua Bezza 1.3L Advance Version, 43% for the Perodua Bezza 1.3L Premium X and 15% for the Perodua Bezza 1.0L variants.
The “A” segment compact sedan is the first Perodua vehicle which upper body was fully designed by Malaysians. The design of the Bezza began in 2014 with the support of Perodua’s partner Daihatsu of Japan. Perodua invested RM300 million to develop the Bezza and the model has 95% local content.
The Perodua Bezza is produced at its’ EEV-certified plant, the Perodua Global Manufacturing Sdn Bhd, which is a highly modern facility with over 75% automation rate (the same plant which produces the Perodua Axia). The sedan name takes inspiration from the word ‘Beza’ in Bahasa Malaysia, which means ‘different’. And that is exactly what Perodua’s first energy efficient sedan is – distinctly different.
The Perodua Bezza, today with prices ranged from RM37,300 for its 1.0L standard G (Manual transmission) to RM50,800 for its 1.3L Advanced variant (Automatic Transmission).
The car comes in 6 different colours, which include Sugar Brown and Ocean Blue for 1.3L variants, which are new metallic colours for Perodua, as well as existing colours of Lava Red, Ebony Black, Glittering Silver & Solid Ivory White. Perodua uses eco-friendly water based paint which also provides a better finish.
