Perodua Alza – 39k bookings to date, over 4k delivered

Perodua has collected 39,000 bookings for the all-new Alza to date. This was revealed by Perodua president and CEO Datuk Seri Zainal Abidin Ahmad at a press conference in Kota Bharu this morning.

The 39,000 total is 9,000 units more than the order book total at the second-generation MPV’s launch day two weeks ago (July 20), where the Perodua chief revealed that the market leader had collected over 30,000 bookings, the highest ever in the brand’s history at launch day.

Then, the P2 boss said that the staggering total was largely attributed to buyers looking to capitalise on potential savings before the sales tax exemption ended.

“This achievement was due to several factors, chief among them being that customers wanted to take full advantage of the sales tax exemption initiative, which expired on June 30. Of the over 200,000 bookings we currently hold, nearly 15% is for this full model change,” he said then, adding that nearly 4,000 customers converted their previous-gen Alza orders to the new D27A even before the booking announcement for it was made.

With Alza bookings close to reaching 40k, it’s clear then that orders are continuing to stream in despite the ending of the sales tax exemption. The good news for those who booked early is that Zainal has assured customers that those who placed orders before June 30 will receive their vehicle before the March 31, 2023 (SST registration) deadline.

As for deliveries, over 4,000 units have been handed over to customers to date as production at Perodua’s Sg Choh factory goes full throttle. No change in the variant ratio – as per launch, 65% have opted for the range-topping AV. Surprisingly, 70% of all Alza bookings are with the GearUp bodykit!

      City Vsen have AEB but no ACC.
      Ativa, X50, Myvi, X70, Elsa, Veloz full spec all have ACC.

      Almera turbo also don’t have ACC.
      Now traffic jam highway alot, ACC is so good.
      Balik kampung also syiok.

      Meanwhile, Passive cruise control is meaningless, no braking, no follow speed,
      Unable to relax.

    Have seen it in person it is quite good looking car with many advanced features embedded. Unfortunately, the recent car crash proven that Perodua/daihatsu/Toyota designed the car just to pass the Asian NCAP even during the testing the A-pillar kinda tilted. The ASA really make the safety kits shine to cover up how poor the tensile strength of the body shell.

      Better than honda strength body shell in which both honda and tesla collides each other during accident while both honda and x50 collide each other during safety test

  • what is the income group to book this car? Since they are so rich to buy new car instead of continue using old car, should they continued be subsidized for petrol?

    Like or Dislike: Thumb up 0 Thumb down 4
    • It takes 10 years for the civil “servants” to realize T20s are enjoying more subsidized petrol than others. It probably takes another 10 years for them to realize SUVs and MPVs drink more petrol than normal cars do.

      This is the advantage of working for the government. You set your own KPI. You won’t set KPIs that you cannot achieve. Nobody can punish you. Because all those above you get their salaries in the same way as you do. You help me, I help you. Same same for all civil “servants” and MPs.

      Not sure about the thumbs down. I am in the same boat and can attest to that. SA did offer me a colour that is not my booking to have it immediately. But I rejected it.
      I think the first batch is given to those who converted the order from old Alza

  • Reminder that the Alza would probably have been less popular if Proton had a more competitive product. However they don’t.

    I wonder if Proton still wants to beat Perodua by 2027.

      Exora (P1) exist simply to make Alza (P2) look good and bargain. So it will look like the rakyat ada pilihan.

      Pilihan pi mai pi mai tang tu.
