Perodua Aruz SUV reaches 25,000 bookings, 52% fulfilled; May 2019 sales reach 22,943 units, 106k YTD

Perodua is working to make enough Aruz SUVs to meet demand, and today the national carmaker announced it has closed the gap between orders and deliveries. The company said it has fulfilled 52% of the 25,000 bookings it has collected since the car was launched in January, with some 13,000 units delivered.

“We have managed to increase Perodua Aruz deliveries to an average of 110 units daily from 100 previously. We are continuing to work closely with our suppliers to further shrink the gap between orders and deliveries,” said president and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad. “The Perodua Aruz has been met with unprecedented demand. We thank all Malaysians for making the nation’s best-value SUV also one of its best-selling SUVs.”

Zainal also apologised to customers who did not receive their cars in time for the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations. “To our valued customers whose new cars we could not deliver in time for Raya, we apologise most sincerely and humbly. Perodua is doing all it possibly can to maximise production and deliveries to shorten your wait, and we thank you very much for your understanding, patience and trust.

“We also express our gratitude to our capable local component suppliers, who have truly proven their mettle by ramping up their production and quality to meet Malaysians’ ever-increasing demand for Perodua models, all of which have well over 90% local content,” Zainal said.

Perodua also said it has sold 22,943 vehicles in the month of May, according to figures from the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA). This would put the company’s year-to-date sales at 105,743 units in just the first five months of 2019 – that’s 8.5% up on the 97,487 vehicles sold in the same period last year.

The Aruz is available in two variants, the 1.5X at RM72,900 and the 1.5 Advance at RM77,900. The latter adds the Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite that includes Pre-collision Braking, Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control. All get a 2NR-VE 1.5 litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 101 hp at 6,000 rpm and 133 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm, paired to a four-speed automatic.

    Perodua is a game changing company. The second national carmaker that have make us proud. Not only becoming top1 carmaker in here, Perodua also export cars to other countries, making it as an international world-class brand. This is also why Proton need to learn from Perodua because Perodua have a lot to teach to Proton. This way, Proton can follow Perodua footsteps to become a game changing company that can make us proud

    Really did proven that Aruz sales are running out of steam. While X70 bookings continued to uptick of 5,000 or so units breaching the 30,000 booking lists, Aruz only did a paltry 3,000 extra bookings in the same month achieving a far lower sales of 25,000. At this rate, X70 sales will continue to outpace Aruz therefore proving to be the No.1 SUV in Malaysia for the foreseeable future. This is before the CKD of X70 unleashing the full local production capacity of Proton into the market. Perodua has gambled badly in taking on the Proton juggernaut and with the eminent introduction of X50 later this year, the popularity of Aruz will soon die within this year alone.

    But compare the bookings with X70 and Perodua Aruz. How many people book for Proton X70? And How many people book for Perodua Aruz? There are over 30000 people book for Proton X70 whereas 25000 people book for Perodua Aruz. There are many reason why many people nowadays gradually buy Proton than Perodua even though there are few more years to be the sales leader for Proton. Some facts that I need to mentioned to you again and some facts that I haven’t mentioned you again before. Let’s start to share my reason

    Firstly, Proton X70 have many equipment features, many technological features and many safety features even though Proton X70 that is imported from CBU that cost from RM99K to RM123K. But soon in the several months later, Proton Malaysia will start to sell CKD Proton X70 to the consumers which will be cheaper which will help to increase more Proton Sales. Now, compare with Perodua Aruz, even though Perodua Aruz doesn’t even have enough features from Toyota Rush, it is cheaper from RM73K to RM77K. However, Perodua Aruz is very slow compare to Toyota Vios, Toyota Yaris due to Perodua Aruz that gets only 4 speed automatic even though Perodua Aruz that gets 1.5L Dual VVT-I Engine. In other words, sitting inside Perodua Aruz while driving, there will be noise cabin when driver drives at more than 110km/h compare to Toyota Vios, Toyota Yaris and X70 is more quieter than Perodua Aruz which Yaris and Vios have 7 speed auto while X70 have 6 speed auto. Moreover, Toyota Yaris and Toyota Vios including Proton X70 have many features than Perodua Aruz.

    Secondly, Proton Service Quality is doing much better than Perodua Service Quality. This is because I have got some feedbacks from Facebook Post and said Perodua Service Quality is getting bad. Furthermore, There are also major problems about Perodua Myvi due to thieves that stole Myvi Wheel Tyres was which will make Perodua Myvi Owners will be more riskier. As I said, Those Perodua Owners who drive Perodua Myvi, they will be more regret in driving Myvi. Moreover, Perodua Alza, Bezza and Axia have lesser safety features than Persona, Saga 2019 and Iriz

      Which is why I have always told people, a good Toyota doesn’t mean a good Perodua. God help those who thought they have bought a Perodua thought they are driving Toyota. SMH.

      • Because that’s the only illusion P2 salesmen can use to sell their cars: That a Perodua is a cut price Toyota. The truth is far from that, and those who got fooled are starting to voice their discontent with P2’s bad aftersales.

    The only models selling are Myvi and Axia. Aruz still lagging X70 sales, while Alza and Bezza sales have lagged Exora and Persona & Saga sales respectively after Proton revealed the truth of costlier servicing for these Perodua cars.

      You mean it also inherits all those scandals like Fake Qualitygate, Carpetgate, Subspec Steelgate, Airbaggate, Fake Emission Datagate, & sending a non-existent G model Aruz for crash testinggate? (No wait, the last one was purely Perodua cheating MIROS).
      It’s no small wonder why our road death tolls have been steadily climbing. It’s because solely Perodua is pure Toyota quality which is crap!

They like your car overheated until burning smell came out so that customers can buy a new same crap.

          I don’t mind making China richer. We came from there anyway, and their economy needs the money. What benefits do we get sending money to Japan? My ancestors not from there and Japan is filthy rich, so they don’t need more money. Which is why I prefer sending money back to China and not to Japan.
