1,000 Perodua cars for ride-hailing and sharing
PERODUA has secured its first ever ride-hailing and ride-sharing service fleet purchase of 1,000 Perodua Bezza and Axia units.
“We are pleased to announce that a ride-hailing and a ride-sharing service provider operating in Malaysia have purchased a combined 1,000 Axias and Bezzas,” said Perodua Sales managing director Datuk Dr Zahari Husin.
He said that the fleet sale to these service providers was significant to Perodua as it opened up yet another market for the compact carmaker.
“This is an important endorsement by companies that rely on good quality and safe cars which are also economical to maintain,” he added.
“The proliferation of ride-hailing and ride-sharing services in Malaysia has revolutionised the way we get around, and Perodua is proud to be a part of this revolution towards more efficient and sustainable transport for all,” Dr Zahari said.
On the whole, over 300,000 Axias and 100,000 Bezzas have been sold since their launches in 2014 and 2016 respectively.
Both are government-certified Energy-Efficient Vehicles (EEV) and have led their respective vehicle segments since their inception.
