Dato' Zainal explained that Perodua is currently working closely with their suppliers and in some cases, provides Perodua staff to work at their premises to ensure that parts supply continues to flow.

He added, “That being said, we hope that the manpower issue can be resolved quickly as the impact to the industry and to some extent the country is significant,"

Alongside continuous communication with its suppliers and partners, Perodua is also working hard to find alternative components to meet demand.

In the first half of this year, Perodua sold 127,343 vehicles totalling a 30 percent jump from 97,290 units sold in the same period last year, on the back of strong demand for vehicles due to the sales tax exemption deadline.

Perodua also saw the highest single booking day with 25,100 vehicle orders taken on 30 June 2022 alone.
