At the flag-off ceremony of the Perodua Aruz TransBorneo Convoy, Perodua President and CEO, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad announced that since the launch of the Perodua Aruz in January, the company has collected over 14,000 bookings nationwide and have delivered over 4,000 units to customers.
Dato’ Zainal said: “Perodua is targeting to expand further its East Malaysian market share from 40% currently, and the new Perodua Aruz will spearhead that expansion in this SUV-popular region.”
The TransBorneo Convoy will see six Aruz travelling from Kuching to Tawau covering 1,500 km over six days (16 to 22 March). Along the way, the convoy will stop over major cities including Sibu, Bintulu, Miri, Kota Kinabalu, Ranau and Sandakan for the public to get up close and experience the new SUV.
“This favourable reception by the Malaysian public both humbles and encourages us to work harder to improve our delivery times and serve you better,” added Dato’ Zainal. The Aruz is priced at RM74,900 for the X variant and RM79,900 for the AV variant that comes equipped with Advanced Safety Assist 2.0.
