Both the internet and netizens have a way of imagining things that aren’t real and the Perodua Nexis is just one such example.
The Nexis name, alongside Traz, were trademarked back in 2022. That said, a trademarked name doesn't necessarily point to a new model launch, it's just a pre-emptive measure to avoid other manufacturers using it, and like many car companies, Perodua would like to keep its options open when naming its next model.
There are rumours that Perodua is developing a brand-new SUV that will be positioned above the Perodua Ativa.
Thus far, we do know that said SUV is codenamed D66B, though whether it turns out to be the Nexis remains to be seen.
Also, there is a possibility that the D66B may not be sold as a Perodua.
Recall that Perodua is the regional R&D hub for Toyota and Daihatsu under an internal company called Emerging Market Compact Car Company (EMCC). EMCC works on models that are sometimes not sold as a Perodua.
One such example is the AC100 / D92A Vios. While the new B-segment sedan is developed by Perodua under EMCC, it is sold exclusively as Toyota.
