In August 2022, Perodua sold 26,039 cars, which is a 42% jump from July. Perodua’s latest model, the all-new 2022 Perodua Alza has received 51,000 bookings so far, and Perodua has registered 7,682 units (15% of bookings).
Launched on July 20, 2022, bookings for the all-new Alza have been open prior to the launch date. In July, it was already reported that more than 39,000 bookings for the Perodua Alza have been received. The all-new Alza features many Perodua-first features like Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, Electronic Parking Brake (EPB), and rear disc brakes.
As for year-to-date numbers, Perodua registered 171,728 cars from January to August, making a 63.7% jump from 2021. However, Perodua says the year-to-date comparison is distorted as Malaysia underwent a lockdown between June 1, 2021, to August 15, 2021, and during that time all non-essential operations were suspended.
Leading Perodua’s year-to-date sales numbers is the Perodua Myvi with 48,658 units registered (28.3%). In second place is the Perodua Bezza with 39,642 units (23.1%). And falling in third place is the Perodua Axia with 37,013 units (21.6%). The newly-launched Perodua Alza reports 7,682 units.
Regarding customer vehicle delivery, Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Sri Zainal Abidin Ahmad said, “We are currently trying to build on this (production and sales) improvement to ensure speedier delivery to our customers,”
Perodua experienced some key issues such as the semiconductor chip supply shortage and insufficient labour at the supplier’s operations. This pushed Perodua to come about with improvements in production and sales. At the moment, Perodua has resolved these issues.
“We are also closely monitoring the increase in prices of raw materials at the moment and are working with the ecosystem on how best to mitigate this impact on our operations,” he adds.
Perodua reports August as its best production month, producing a total of 28,036 cars. Dato’ Sri Zainal Abidin said that of the 28,036 Perodua cars produced in August, the Perodua Bezza leads the pack with 6,808 units, followed by the Perodua Myvi and Perodua Axia at 6,252 units and 4,857 units respectively. On the delivery time of the Perodua Alza, Perodua has not released any new specific information.
