Perodua has announced that the waiting period for the Alza has been reduced from 2 months to 3 weeks. Managing director Aminar Rashid Salleh said that this was made possible by increasing production of the MPV within these past few weeks. To date, Perodua has received more than 30,500 bookings and has delivered around 20,000 units of the Alza. The company is looking to hit 4,000 units per month for its newest model.
“Our car sales in April totalled some 15,900 units or 33.9% market share (based on Perodua’s Total Industry Volume estimate of 47,000 units) beating our target of 15,500 units. April achievement was also 29.4% higher than the 12,300 units sold in the same month last year. However, the 15,900 units sold was 14.1% lower compared with the 18,500 units (Perodua’s record) achieved in March 2010,” Aminar revealed.
Unsurprisingly, Perodua’s (and Malaysia’s) best selling model in April is the evergreen Myvi with 6,300 units. The company accounts for 33.9% market share, up from 32.9% in March. “We are also on course to achieve our 176,000 units sales by registration target this year. For the first 4 months of 2010, we have sold 63,700 units, ahead of the 59,900 units planned,” a happy En Aminar said.
