Perodua now just 10% shy of 2022 sales target, with two months to spare

Perodua has just published its sales report for the month of October, which recorded a monthly sales of 25,849 units. The figure represents a modest 5% increase over the previous month, but more importantly, it’s also brought the national carmaker’s year-to-date (YTD) sales figure above the 200,000 mark, now standing at 222,203 units – just 25,597 units, or about 10% shy of its annual target of 247,800.

Compared to the same period last year, the figure also represents a massive 51.2% jump in sales. However, Perodua does note that its sales were affected by the Covid-19 lockdown between June and August 2021.

The Bezza made up most of the national carmaker’s sales last month with 6,768 units, followed by the Myvi with 6,130 units, and the Axia at 4,989 units delivered. Perodua makes no mention of the all-new Alza in its press release this month, although its data released back in September showed there were still more than 43,000 outstanding orders to be fulfilled.

Perodua remains bullish about its sales performance for the last two months of the year, as it expects the registration momentum to continue upwards until the end of the year. The confidence is further bolstered by its stable production output, with 22,974 units manufactured in October, bringing its annual production total at its Sungai Choh facility up to 229,811 as of October this year.

“Looking ahead, we plan to further increase our production and sales volume as we try to go beyond our earlier set sales target for 2022, and by doing so will reduce the waiting period for our customers,” said Perodua President and CEO, Dato’ Sri Zainal Abidin Ahmad.

He added that the higher than expected production and sales performance has also impacted the local automotive ecosystem positively, given that on average, 95% of Perodua parts are sourced locally.

“In fact, the high localisation rate has also helped shield Perodua from the volatility in the foreign exchange market at the moment,” Dato’ Sri Zainal said. “It is our intention to further improve the local automotive supply chain as having such an industry have proven a benefit to both Perodua and consumers.”
