Perodua has announced that orders for its new Myvi, which was launched last November, have now reached 60,000 units. The automaker also said it has delivered 28,000 Myvis to date, with all orders made in 2017 for the compact car fulfilled. In January, orders stood at the 48,000 mark, with 20,000 vehicles delivered.

“We thank our customers and the Malaysian public for their strong support of the Myvi, and we will continue to improve the delivery time for our valued customers,” Perodua sales MD Datuk Dr Zahari Husin said. He added that customers who place their bookings now for the new Myvi will most likely receive their cars in time for the Raya holidays.

The automaker estimates its market share for the month of February to surpass 41% with 17,100 vehicles sold against an estimated 41,100-unit total industry volume (TIV) figure. If this is the case, then last month’s performance will eclipse that of January, when the brand recorded its highest ever monthly share of the TIV pie. Sales for the brand last month were made up of 6,500 Myvis, 5,000 Axias, 3,700 Bezzas and 1,900 Alzas.

On a year-on-year basis, Perodua’s sales performance improved by 13.1% to 34,800 units against 30,800 vehicles sold in the first two months of 2017. The automaker stated in January that it is aiming to sell 209,000 units this year, a two percent increase from the 204,900 units sold in 2017.
