CKD Mazda CX-30 to be launched in Malaysia, 2022 or later 01

It appears that Malaysia could welcome the locally-assembled (CKD) 2021 Mazda CX-30 in the near future, according to a report published by AmInvest Bank. Meanwhile, a seperate report by Public Investment Bank states that production of the SUV is slated to begin in December this year.

Update 12-March 2021: A Bermaz Auto source clarified that the Mazda CX-30 CKD is only set to be introduced in 2022 or later.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

The same report also estimates that local assembly of the model will reduce its selling price by around RM 15,000.

Voted Japan's most beautiful car, the CX-30 has been quite a hit with Malaysians - outselling the Mazda CX-3 by three times last year.

The MX-30

The mild-hybrid MX-30 is another candidate for local assembly but no decision has been made yet.

As it stands, the Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-8 are the two models that are currently assembled at Mazda Malaysia's plant in Kulim, Kedah.

Still, this information comes from AmInvest Bank, and Bermaz Auto - Malaysia's sole Mazda distributors - hasn't commented on the matter in the meantime.
