Perodua expected to deliver more than the 20,299 units it recorded in November, but intermittent disruption has impacted production and thus deliveries to customers. Compared to last month’s figure of 27,858, which was the company’s record thus far, it was a 27.1% decline.

As such, Perodua is aiming for 30,000 units registrations in December. With a full uninterrupted working month (as the Christmas public holiday is on a Saturday) as well as internal countermeasures in place, the company also hopes the record sales figure will end 2021 with over 200,000 units of sales.

President and CEO, Perodua, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said, “We wish to apologise for the delay in delivery and thank all our customers for their support and patience, especially in the most challenging year so far. We are working with the automotive ecosystem to overcome these issues,”

On the new Perodua Myvi, Dato’ Zainal said the company has accumulated 14,600 orders as of December 2 nd, of which, 7,189 orders were converted from the previous variants. For the first eleven months of 2021, Perodua has sold 42,288 Myvi models.

The Perodua Alza 5+2 has been in service in Malaysia for over a decade. With the all-new Daihatsu Xenia featuring a new front-wheel drive layout be the basis for the new MPV?

Dato’ Zainal also spoke about next year’s preliminary sales target of 240,000 units, a figure that was first presented for 2020 and then again for 2021. Before the global pandemic affected the world, Perodua in 2019 sold 240,341 units.

“We believe that the worst is behind us in terms of Covid-19 related lockdowns– Insya Allah – and while there are other risks in the market, we foresee the year 2022 as a year of recovery. The 240,000 registration number is important as we want to grow the Malaysian automotive ecosystem,”

In case you missed it, Perodua also launched their first turbocharged model, the Ativa, earlier this year, priced from under RM62k

“With this growth, we expect to see auto component purchase to be back to around RM6.5 billion for next year. We will share the total number of purchased component parts for this year in January,” said Dato’ Zainal.

The company will announce a more accurate forecast in late January 2022, together with a briefing on its 2021 sales and after-sales performance.
