Perodua targets 240,000 units
Rawang, 3 February 2021 – Perodua aims to sell 240,000 vehicles in 2021 – a 9% increase from the 220,163 units sold in 2020 – on the back of sustained strong demand for its existing models and the extension of the sales tax exemption announced by the government recently. In 2019 240,341 vehicles were sold.
Of the 220,163 units sold in 2020, 66,330 were Myvis, 59,651 Axias, 56,996 Bezzas, 22,494 Aruz, 14,691 Alzas and one other model against a total industry volume (TIV) of 529,434 units, netting a 41.6% market share.
“With the extension of the sales tax exemption to end-June 2021, recent COVID-19 vaccine developments and all our models continuing to be in demand, we believe 2021 will be the year of recovery,” said president and CEO Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“In addition, with 2020 ending better than previously expected for the industry, we are looking to increase our stock by boosting our production target to 272,000 vehicles this year – the highest in our history. This increase will replenish our stock to ensure brisk delivery this year,” he added.
Our 2021 production target represents a 23% increase over the 220,968 units manufactured in 2020, and with all its models having over 90% local parts content, the carmaker remains the biggest buyer of automotive components in Malaysia.
According to Dato’ Zainal, Perodua is expecting its service intakes to grow 20% from 2 million units in 2020 to 2.4 million units in 2021, comprising both current and new customers.
