Perodua Has Already Sold 250K Cars So Far This Year

Perodua beat their initial 2022 sales target before the end of November.

Earlier in the year, Perodua announced an ambitious sales target of 247,800 cars for 2022. This was higher than their record of 240K cars sold in 2019. In November they exceeded that sales target with 250,795 cars sold. By October 2022, they had already sold 222,203 vehicles – meaning November sales amounted to roughly 25,600 cars.

What’s perhaps more impressive is the company’s production numbers. They’ve managed to produce 258,960 vehicles this year so far perhaps to meet the backlog of orders following the expiration of the sales tax exemption for cars. At their peak, they produced 29,149 vehicles in a single month – the higher production output in Perodua’s history.

Perodua President and CEO Dato’ Sri Zainal Abidin Ahmad attributes this to their ability to maximise resources within Perodua and their supplier ecosystem.


“This achievement is meaningful on many levels; the first shows our ability to further maximise current resources, both within Perodua and its supplier ecosystem. The second is that through this achievement, we now realise that we can further increase output –both in sales and production without investing in a new plant or acquiring more land for our manufacturing operations,” he said.

“That being said, we will continue to invest in upgrading our operations as a group with emphasis in knowledge and skill development of our people. We are also working closely with our suppliers and dealers to ensure that their operations are capable to meet future demand and challenges.” he added.


Here’s the press release with more information.


Perodua production, monthly and year-to-date sales performances reached new highs in November as the national compact car company shifts into higher gear to meet demand.

In terms of sales, Perodua sold 250,795 units between January and November this year, which has surpassed its full year target of 247,800 units announced earlier in the year and the highest sales achievement for the company.

On a year-on-year comparison, Perodua sales rose by 50.0% to 250,795 from 167,250 units sold in the same period last year. The jump in sales comparatively to the same period last year was due to the Covid-19 lock down initiated by the government between June and mid-August in 2021.

Monthly sales also recorded a new record of 28,592units in November 2022, which is an increase of 40.9%when compared with 20,299 units sold in November 2021, and a 10.6% increase when compared with 25,849 units sold in October this year.

The top 3 Perodua models sold in November are Bezza with 8,089 units, followed by the Myvi with 6,624 unitsand the Axia with 5,812 units.

On setting a new target for the year, Dato’ Sri Zainal said that the national compact car company will instead announce the full-year actual numbers in January.
