Ever-expanding its export portfolio, Perodua has announced that it will be exporting a total of 310 units of the Perodua Myvi 1.5 SE and the Perodua Alza 1.5 SE variants to Brunei. Perodua’s president and CEO, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh was in the Kingdom to officiate proceedings.

“This is a major step forward for Perodua to strengthen our brand presence in the region as we strive to become a player in the ASEAN auto market in the years to come,” said the Perodua chief.

“Both the Myvi 1.5 SE and the Alza 1.5 SE made a debut at the Brunei Motoring BN – Auto Show 2016 here today, and their on-the-road prices will be unveiled at our showroom,” said the managing director of GHK Motors, Pehin Kapitan Lela Diraja Dato Paduk Goh King Chin. GHK Motors is one of Perodua’s distributors in the Kingdom.

Brunei is said to have a population of 417,784 people. In 2015, its total industry volume of vehicles sold last year was 14,243 units. It should also be noted that this is not the first time that Perodua has exported its vehicles to the sovereign state. The Malaysian car maker first shipped its Perodua Kancil to the Kingdom in 1996 – to date, a total of 2,300 vehicles have been exported there.

“We believe that there is demand for these models in this country as the acceptance of compact vehicles is gradually growing,” Aminar concluded. Brunei is the sixth market that Perodua currently ships its vehicles to, following Indonesia, Singapore, Fiji, Mauritius and Sri Lanka.
