Perodua Global produces 250,000 vehicle since August 2014
Perodua Global Manufacturing Sdn Bhd (PGMSB), the advanced manufacturing arm under the Perodua group, rolled-out its 250,000 vehicle recently since it began operations in August 2014.
Of the 250,000 units produced, 85% was the Axia (since August 2014) and 15% was the Bezza (since June 2016).
“This is a historical accomplishment for the entire group; the PGMSB team has work hard to ensure that our customers’ orders are met in an acceptable timeframe,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh said.
Perodua sold 167,000 vehicles for the first 10 months of 2016, of which the Axia was the best seller with 44.2% sold this year followed by the Myvi at 24.9%, Alza 17.3% and the Bezza at 13.6% (since July 2016).
On Perodua’s latest model, Perodua has delivered over 22,000 vehicles since it was launched in July this year and the average waiting period for the Bezza is less than 2 weeks after the financial institution approves the hire purchase loan.
“We thank the public for their support and we will continue to further improve our operations to ensure that our customers get the best from our products and services,” Aminar said.
Aminar said that Perodua is currently maximising delivery of all its products as part of the compact carmaker’s pledge to ensure speedy delivery of its products to its customers.
“In addition, we have also introduced several sales campaigns to further delight the public. Please visit the nearest Perodua showroom and speak with our authorised sales advisors for more information,” he said.
