April 2024 Malaysian vehicle sales down by 18%: MAA

The Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) has released vehicle sales data for the month of April 2024, announcing that a total of 57,991 vehicles were delivered to buyers last month. This is 13,061 units less than the 71,052 units reported by the association for March, representing a 18.4% reduction in volume.

The association said that the drop in numbers last month was due to a short working month as a result of Hari Raya festive holidays.

Compared to the same month in 2023, April’s total was 21.3% (or 10,189 units) higher than the 47,802 units achieved last year. As for the year-to-date TIV numbers for the year, the first four months of 2024 has seen 260,236 units delivered, which is 8.3% (20,019 units) higher than the 240,217 units managed in the same period last year.

The association added that vehicle sales in May are expected to be slightly higher compared to April.

    The next few months will focus on second hand market. You can get very good deal since Raya has ended. Just give a little time for them to default the payment and bank to tarik the cars.

      After all those punishing announcements, rakyat has no more interest to buy new cars anymore. This will be the start of an artificial recession caused by the bumbling mismanagement by an amateur team of ministers that has no experience running a functional Gomen. People are just basically sick & tired of them. Anwar will go down in history sitting beside UK’s Theresa May(Day).

        The alternative is a bunch of religion and class warfare exploiting dwellers. I’ll take the educated group that are having to make hard choices to build a sustainable economy and country, not ones handing out pennies to the less fortunate to curry votes while they pilfer billions.

        The cancer that is religion and race based political parties need to be rooted out for the betterment of the country. Alas, I live among a populace that have gravitated towards that by empowering such a party through votes. Let’s not forget that the current government is a compromised one, whereby they are having to accommodate/form a coalition with a certain party that are the antithesis of progress and are poisoned to the bone.

        Give the secular and progressive party the mandate by giving them a simple majority, then grade their performance. Until then, keep your complaints in check, as they are just unfounded gibberish.

          When PM Najib is back and running the country with a pure BN Gomen with full rakyat support, he will start by lowering the PH cekik darah taxation thru a lower 6% GST to replace 8+10% SST, then direct payments of cash to B40 via BRIM2.0, then inflation will be lower when our RM rises back to RM 2.5 per USD, with a stronger ringgit there will be less reasons for foreign cars to come take our subsidised petrol so there continue to have cheaper petrol for our rakyats, with a stable gomen back on track to high income more investments will flow and this brings more professional jobs for educated rakyats then they no more need to leave the country to work, this helps to bring more prosperity & happiness to all rakyat when everyone has jobs and money in their bank accounts.

          We can’t wait for the day to kick out useless PH Gomen & PMX into Klang River which they repolluted after Najib has cleaned it up! Rakyat was truly senang under PM Najib now we regret putting him down.
