PERODUA WORKING TO CUT WAITING TIME
22,000 owners still waiting for Myvi units as of end-September
PERUSAHAAN Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua) is striving to shorten the waiting time for its Myvi model to a more reasonable period.
Its president and chief executive officer Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said until the end of last month, 22,000 Myvi units had yet to be delivered to their new owners.
“We are still unable to determine the full delivery period but our assembly lines have started production and the delivery process will begin soon,” he said.
Aminar said Perodua sold 168,200 vehicles in the first nine months of the year — an increase of 11 per cent compared with 151,600 vehicles in the same period last year.
He said sales increase could be attributed to positive response to the new Myvi and other Perodua models — Axia, Bezza and Alza — which raked up over 53,700, 38,100 and 18,400 units, respectively, in sales so far this year.
