Perodua has delivered 1,000 units of the new 2018 Perodua Myvi nationwide, one week after the third-generation hatchback was launched. The Rawang-based carmaker says that over 80% of the first 1,000 units delivered were 1.5 litre variants.

“We are now focusing our efforts on delivery of the all new Myvi to our customers as we understand their urgent need for transportation,” said Perodua Sales MD Datuk Zahari Husin, who also revealed that the company has received 13,000 bookings as of today.

“This response so far from the public is overwhelming and we thank our valued customers for choosing Perodua and especially the all new Perodua Myvi as their car of choice. To our customers, we will continue our pledge to launch and deliver and we welcome you to our sales showrooms to speak to our authorised sales advisors to see as well as to test drive the new Myvi for yourselves,” he added.

The new Myvi has been impressive and surprising, both on paper and on the move. The in-house developed new model is very well-stocked with kit – LED headlamps, keyless entry and push start, digital air-con controls with two memory settings, four airbags and VSC are standard from the RM44,300 base model, which has a five-star ASEAN NCAP rating.

All 1.5L models get six airbags and the top RM55,300 Advance boasts the Advanced Safety Assist suite of active safety systems, which include Pre-Collision Warning (PCW), Pre-Collision Braking (PCB), Front Departure Alert (FDA) and Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC) functions.
