  • More Malaysians opt for compact, budget cars: Perodua revises 2023 target to 325k, Q4 to be its best in history

    With less than two months left before the year ends, Perodua is revising its sales target for 2023 to 325,000 units, up from the earlier announced figure of 314,000 units. Production targets have been increased in tandem, from 330,000 units to 338,000 units. In case you are wondering on the gap between production target and sales', Perodua’s production target is always slightly higher than its sales targets, to accommodate the need to keep a small number of buffer stock. Perodua says the upward

  • Sharpened plant efficiency set to see Perodua make Q4 2023 its best ever; on track for 314k units sold this year

    Perodua is set to make the fourth quarter of this year (Q4 2023) its best ever, and the Rawang outfit is well on track to hit its 314,000 unit sales target this year – and an improved production efficiency is the major step they've taken to see it through. Advancements in its plants have seen the carmaker post 18.6 percent sales increase year-to-date in September 2023, which currently stands at 233,227 units. Rather unsurprisingly this comes off the back of a 18.7 percent improvement in manufact

  • Video: Summing up our time with the Perodua Ativa Hybrid

    Our time with the Perodua Ativa Hybrid was flawless and quite an eye-opener as well regarding what to expect from a potential affordable hybrid in the Malaysian market. You can’t buy an Ativa Hybrid… yet, but that was precisely the reasoning on why Perodua did what they did. Essentially, the SUV was rebadged from a CBU Daihatsu Rocky from Japan and leased on a subscription basis in Malaysia to assess the feasibility of producing an affordable hybrid locally. Only 300 units were brought in and le

  • Spied: Will the Perodua Ativa receive an ADAS update in 2024?

    The Perodua Ativa finally makes it to the top as Malaysia’s best-selling SUV for the month of July 2023, toppling the reigning king, the Proton X50. However, the Ativa has been on sale for 2 years now and as such, it is ripe for a new update. Perhaps there might be a new face as we’ve seen on the updated Myvi and Bezza as well as new features. P2 however is very secretive when it comes to new updates for their models which usually come 2-3 years after launch. Still, a Facebook user named Hassana

  • Small (and brief) victory for Perodua Ativa, snatches July's best-selling SUV title from Proton X50

    When it comes to SUVs, the Proton X50 has always been the preferred choice for Malaysians ever since its mega-anticipated launch back in 2020. However, in July 2023, its crown was snatched by the Perodua Ativa. According to Proton’s recent press release on July sales, the X50 ceded leadership of the overall SUV market though it remains the sales leader for B-segment SUVs. That month saw 2,630 units of the X50 sold nationwide. Even though Perodua never reveals the sales data of specific models, i

  • Honda WR-V annihilates Ativa's Indo twins, Raize and Rocky in sales in H1 2023

    While the Perodua Ativa was the only choice for Malaysians looking for an entry-level SUV prior to the introduction of the Honda WR-V, buyers in neighbouring Indonesia have a bit more variety aside from the Toyota Raize and Daihatsu Rocky. Despite competition from the Kia Sonet and Nissan Magnite, the Ativa’s donor twins easily outsold them. That is until the WR-V entered the ring and since its global debut back in November, the smallest Honda SUV has swiped the crown held by the Raize/Rocky duo

  • A nearly 600-km journey in one tank, we take the Perodua Ativa Hybrid down south

    It has been around 2 months since we collected the Perodua Ativa Hybrid and over the Hari Raya Haji weekend, I decided to make a trip down south to my hometown in Johor in our white hybrid SUV. We are well acquainted with its turbocharged variant having bought one for our long-term review. We missed the red Ativa which we affectionately called Cik Tiva dearly and hopefully, it has found a new home with owners who would treat it with as much care as us. But back to the present and the white Ativa

  • Daihatsu transferred out 3 executives, quality management and vehicle evaluation teams now independent

    In Daihatsu’s latest follow-up to the countermeasures following the spate of procedural irregularities involving the UN safety certification of 5 Daihatsu-developed models – Toyota Vios / Yaris Ativ, Perodua Axia, Daihatsu Rocky Hybrid, Toyota Raize Hybrid, and an yet-to-launched model (likely to be the Japan-only new generation Daihatsu Move) – the company has revamped its organizational structure to separate quality management teams from sales, while three executives have been transferred out.
