Malaysia vehicle sales data for June 2019 by brand

Vehicle sales in the first six months of 2019 have literally been an up/down affair, and consistently at that, pretty much resembling a sine wave – the oscillation continued on its way in June, downwards, following a strong showing in May in which Raya promos undoubtedly helped swell the numbers.

Sales data from the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) revealed that just 42,526 vehicles were shifted last month, 18,254 units – or 30% – less than the 60,780 sold in the previous month. Given that figure, it’s no surprise to see more red arrows than green ones in the chart below.

Market leader Perodua saw sales drop to 16,037 units from the 22,945 vehicles it managed the month before, a 30.1% drop. Despite sales dropping by 48.7%, Honda remains in second place in the year-to-date standings, but Proton (-28.2%) has closed the gap, the margin of difference now only 742 units.

Elsewhere, it was a soft month for Toyota (-23.7%), Nissan (-28.4%) and Mazda (-22.8%), but a few brands emerged with an increase, these being Volkswagen (+24.7%), Kia (+0.7%) and Renault (+792.9%), the impressive spike for the latter likely from registrations for its Subscription plan.

In the premium segment, BMW (+4.8%) and Lexus (+59.0%) gained traction in June, but it wasn’t such a rosy month for Mercedes (-31.1%) and Volvo (-13.0%).

    Proton’s YTD is very low. Don’t forget, in Nov and December hardly people buy cars because they lose one year.

    So, Proton’s YTD will be around 70,000 as it is already end of July.

    5 more months to go and I don’t think there will be a substantial increase from last year’s YTD sales.

    Proton is losing RM4 mil per day. They need at least 100k sales just to break even. Belum kira profits lagi. Just to break even.

    • Pada tahun lepas, jumlah jualan adalah 64,744 unit. Separuh pertama tahun ini, 43,518 unit telah dijual, jika terdapat 7,000 unit yang dijual setiap bulan, jumlah jualan pada akhir tahun adalah 85,518 unit. Adakah anda pandai mengira ia?

    “Renault (+792.9%), the impressive spike for the latter likely from registrations for its Subscription plan.”

    How is this captured as sales when in reality it is just a leasing plan?

    With Proton’s impressive rise, it won’t surprise anyone if they can recapture 2nd spot and close the gap to Perodua with X50 by end of 2019.

    Volvo and Lexus need to drop the price by at least 40% to attract buyer

    Proton sembang je kencang. Rupanya belakang Honda lagi despite all the advantages given to them. Dah diberi banyak “free kick” pun masih kalah lagi. Cakap je lebih.

      If Proton sales depends on its new models, they would have be number 1 when they launched 4 models in 2016 lah. If pricing of other brands are not restricted, Proton would fell below Nissan this year.

      • So many ifs. Better come back to the reality of your hated Proton is gaining market share. So much hatred isn’t good for a salesman too. Will be too obvious in front of customers.

    Perodua sales is just amazing, every month will always be on the top spot. Proven that Perodua is truly a GC carmaker. This also can be a lesson for Proton to improve their sales
