It remains one of the most affordable cars with advanced safety features in the country,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“Since our operations restarted after a two-month Movement Control Order (MCO) closure, our volume has rebounded swiftly, aided by the government’s sales tax exemption which will run until year-end.
