Speaking of which, booking figures for the Alza stands at 51,000 units so far.

Last we checked, this translates to a waiting period of nearly a year, but things could've improved since then.

“We are currently trying to build on this improvement to ensure speedier delivery to our customers,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Sri Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.

August was also the Rawang outfit's best month so far this year in terms of production, with 28,036 units made then, which helped to materialise Perodua's increase in deliveries for all models.

The Perodua Axia Style

Dato' Sri Zainal said the improvement in production and sales came about as some key issues such as the semiconductor chip supply shortage and insufficient labour at the supplier’s operations; however, these issues have been resolved at the moment.

“We are also closely monitoring the increase in prices of raw materials at the moment and are working with the ecosystem on how best to mitigate this impact to our operations,” he added.

On a year-to-date basis, Perodua saw an increase of 63.7% to 171,728 vehicles registered in the first eight months of this year, compared to 104,933 units registered in the same period last year.

However, note that the country underwent a lockdown between 1-June to 15-August 2021, skewing the numbers somewhat.
