2020 Perodua Sales Target

There is a lot of hate online surrounding the Perodua Myvi for its subpar driving experience and subpar perceived quality. But Perodua’s sales number for 2019 paints a different story.

Perodua sold 240,341 cars in 2019 and the Myvi emerged as the company’s best-seller followed by the Axia, Bezza, Aruz and Alza. This is a year-on-year jump of 13,098 units (+5.8%) compared to 2018.

Sales breakdown are as follows:

Perodua Bezza

45,656

Perodua Aruz

Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato' Zainal Abidin Ahmad said: “Against a 2019 total industry volume (TIV) estimated at 604,775 units, Perodua took nearly 40% of the Malaysian market.”

However, despite being the number 1 automotive brand in Malaysia (by a significant and comfortable margin), Perodua will be ‘cautiously optimistic’ about 2020 by maintaining an annual sales target of 240,000 units – quite different from the bullish approach of their direct competitor.
