It’s common in Malaysia for the prices of automobiles to go up a few months after launch for numerous reasons such as revised tax rates. With the coming new automotive policy coming into effect in September (assuming the government does not delay it again) it’s possible that the Perodua Myvi’s price will be going up.
It’s normal for automobile makers to sell cars at the old prices in case of any price hike when you book the car before the price hike. It is not the same with the Perodua Myvi! Look at the image I have attached below, which I have screenshot from this page.
Note the following text:
III) PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT PRIOR NOTIFICATION. THE EFFECTIVE DATE WILL BE THAT PREVAILING AT THE TIME OF DELIVER AND NOT WHEN PLACING OR SIGNING BOOKING
This means even if you have pre-booked the car, if the car is delivered after the new tax rates you will have to pay the new price, whether it is higher or lower! This text was also in your booking agreement when you signed it.
Most likely the price will go up by 2-3K ringgit. So guys, better pray your Myvi is delivered before the new tax structure is put into effect!
