Owners of the second-generation Perodua Myvi (launched in 2011 and facelifted in 2015) will be glad to know that the national automaker will continue to provide support for their vehicles with the opening a new parts production line in Tanjung Malim.

The new line dedicated to the model will be operated by Perodua vendor IQM, and will produce body components including bonnets, doors, fenders, quarter panels and roofs.

“For our customers’ safety, convenience and peace-of-mind, we are giving our commitment to them that we will continue to produce high-quality and affordable parts for their Perodua vehicles,” said Takahashi Masanori, president of Perodua Auto Corporation.

“We elected to outsource parts production for the second-generation Myvi because our manufacturing plants are already at peak capacity. Being already a manufacturer of Viva parts since production of the model ended in 2014, IQM was a natural choice for this project,” he added.

Meanwhile, engine parts for the model continue to be produced on a one-shot basis at Perodua Manufacturing (PMSB) in Rawang, whereas other vendors will supply other parts.

Besides the second-gen Myvi, IQM also continues to manufacture service parts for the Viva since 2014 at its facility in Tanjung Malim. The company is also a supplier of metal stamping, body assembly parts and brake tube components to Perodua.

Perodua also notes that original parts for the first-gen Myvi, Kelisa and even the famous Kancil continue to be produced by other vendors in Malaysia to this day.

“There remain a great many users of the second-generation Myvi, of which over 519,000 were produced from May 2011 to October 2017. This is an endorsement by Malaysians and we take this trust seriously,” Takahashi said.

“IQM has been a vendor of Perodua’s since 2002. Over the years, Perodua and IQM have built a strong relationship based on trust, quality and absolute never-ending loyalty to our customers,” added Aidil Azlan Mohd Fitri, executive director of IQM.
