Perodua Took 25K Orders On The Last Day Of June 2022
At the 1H 2022 Report, Perodua gave us some facts and figures to ponder.
Perodua has had a tremendous 2022 so far. The company met with the media to talk about their performance for the first half of the year. So far, Perodua has sold some 127,343 vehicles, which represents a 30% rise in sales over 1H 2021. Of course, you have to bear in mind that the country went through a massive lockdown last year around this time.
The being said, the end of the SST exemption in June 2022 was also a factor in the large number of car sales.
Of the 127,343 units registered in 2022 so far, the break down is as follows:
- Myvi – 38,039 units
- Axia – 29,183 units
- Bezza – 28,719 units
Perodua did not report on the number of Ativa, Aruz or Alza models sold in this period. The outgoing Perodua Alza was taken out of production in April 2022 with its replacement already open for booking.
“There was a significant rush in vehicle booking especially when the government extended the registration period to 31 March 2023 and we thank Malaysians for choosing Perodua as their brand of choice,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
“Speaking of the sales tax exemption; on the last day of the initiative, Perodua saw the highest single booking day on 30 June 2022 with 25,100 vehicles orders taken,” he said. “This is unprecedented and a testament to the growth potential of Malaysia’s automotive industry given the right incentive.”
“We sincerely thank the government for extending the delivery deadline to 31 March 2022 as we needed that grace period to meet the demand so far,” Dato’ Zainal said.
