Perodua has announced that orders for the third-generation Perodua Myvi reached 6,000 units on Friday, the day after the B-segment hatchback was officially launched.

At point of introduction, that figure stood at 5,000 units. Statistics revealed that 78% of the bookings were for the 1.5 litre variants, and the preferred exterior colour was Granite Grey, which is new and exclusive to the 1.5 litre model.

Perodua president and CEO Datuk Dr Aminar Rashid Salleh thanked Malaysians for their strong endorsement of the car, and said the company remains committed to maximising deliveries to ensure that Myvi is delivered speedily to customers. The initial sales target for the D20N is 6,000 units a month.

The automaker also began deliveries of the car yesterday, and the first customer to receive his Myvi was Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) group chairman Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar.

The three grand prize winners of the Myvi 12 Iconic Years Anniversary SMS & Win Contest were also among the first owners of the new Myvi – Chin Mei Ling, Mohd Nazmil Mohd Nasir and Ong Kok Seng were each presented with keys to a Myvi 1.5 Advance yesterday.

The new Myvi is available in four model variants, and pricing starts from RM44,300 for the 1.3 Standard G manual and RM46,300 for the automatic. Next, the 1.3 Premium X goes for RM48,300, followed by 1.5 High at RM51,800 and the range-topping 1.5 Advance at RM55,300. All prices are on-the-road without insurance, inclusive of a five-year/150,000 km warranty.
