Teacher is the proud owner of the 250,000th Perodua Axia
Little did Isma Nurul Farhana binti Ishak knew that her booking of a Perodua Axia two weeks ago would land her the 250,000th unit sold in Malaysia.
In a simple delivery ceremony in Alor Setar on 5 August 2017, Isma, her husband Ismail Din, and their son, Isma Abdul Hadi Ismail were presented a mock key, a bouquet of flowers and a small token for being the lucky customer.
“We are very impressed by the Axia. We borrowed and drove the car to Cameron Highlands earlier this year and we are amazed at how stable, fuel efficient and good looking the car is,” Ismail Din said.
The family, which resides in Pulau Langkawi (which is a tax free zone) decided to choose the Axia over other brands.
“Even in Pulau Langkawi, the Axia is popular with the locals and international travellers alike,” Ismail said.
The Axia is powered by a VVT-I engine which is able to travel up to 22.5 km/l in eco-driving. It has also been awarded a 4-star rating by ASEAN NCAP which is on par with international safety standards.
“We are happy yet humbled by the overwhelming response by the Malaysian public for Perodua in general and for the Axia in particular,” Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director, Dato’ Dr. Zahari Husin said.
“In just over 3 years, we have delivered a quarter of a million Axias, which is a significant milestone for us,” he said.
Dato’ Dr. Zahari added that the 250,000 mark also demonstrates the confidence Malaysians have in the model’s quality, reliability and safety.
“This endorsement is a testament from all Malaysians about the Axia’s offerings, not just from an affordable standpoint but also on its overall offerings, which include quality and most of all safety,” he said.
