Honda Malaysia Delivers 16 Civics To KPDNHEP

Honda Malaysia has delivered 16 units of the Civic 1.8S to the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP). The base model Honda Civic was selected for use as a fleet vehicle for the Ministry.

This is the first time Honda Malaysia has presented a vehicle to KPDNHEP, but this year alone, they’ve delivered 40 units to the Royal Malaysian Army and 425 units to the Royal Malaysian Police.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Honda Malaysia, Mr. Toichi Ishiyama had this to say:

“On behalf of Honda Malaysia, we are honored that the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs has chosen Civic as their preferred car in accomplishing their tasks and duties. We are also appreciative of the Ministry’s crucial role in promoting and sustaining domestic trade in Malaysia, which is important as we are still facing challenges to boost the Malaysian economy which was greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is encouraging to observe that all Malaysians are working together to overcome the setbacks and we sincerely hope that Malaysia will be on the road towards economic recovery soon.”

Honda Malaysia launched the facelift of the 10th generation Honda Civic in February of 2020, just weeks before the Movement Control Order was first put in place. Since then, the company has sold more than 10,400 units of the car, making it Honda Malaysia’s 2nd best selling vehicle. By Honda Malaysia’s estimation, this new Civic has captured 81% of the C-segment sedan market share, and we believe that. Nissan doesn’t have an entry in this niche. Both Toyota and Mazda fully-import their C-segment sedans and have a slight price disadvantage in comparison to the locally-assembled Civic.
