Bookings for the Perodua Axia has topped the 40,000 mark. As of yesterday, 42,000 names have been collected for the compact car, with 8,000 units already delivered to customers. The figures were revealed by Perodua chairman Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin at the groundbreaking ceremony of Perodua and Daihatsu’s new engine manufacturing plant in Sendayan, yesterday.

“Perodua has embarked on a transformation journey since 2011 that will see our products and services are on par or better than other established automotive brands. These transformation initiatives are in the form of production, products, R&D and procurement, and customer satisfaction,” Asmat said.

“The initial outcome of this initiative can be seen with the launch of our latest model – the Perodua Axia – and we will be making several more announcements on this matter over the coming months. What is important to mention here is that we are moving forward in line with the changing economic landscape. It is indeed an exciting and challenging time for us as we prepare for change,” he added.

The overall Axia bookings figure stood at 32,000 (6,000 delivered) on October 9, and Bernama quoted “39,000 units” from Perodua COO Zahari Husin on October 18, so the momentum is strong. P2 has also started deliveries of the bare bones Axia Standard E to driving schools.

The Perodua Axia was officially launched in September. Malaysia’s most affordable car and first Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) comes in four trim levels priced from RM24,600 to RM42,530.
