Earlier today during Perodua’s media conference, the second Malaysian car maker reiterated that they are capable of launching one all-new model (FMC, full model change in Perodua’s terminology) and two facelift models in one year’s time.
"Still valid. Our current capability is one FMC and two MC (per year). Because of Covid-19 - 2019 and 2020, 2021 - it was disrupted. Last year was our recovery, this year we'll go back to pre-pandemic levels in terms of capacity," said Perodua President and CEO Dato' Sri Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
Well, we already know that this year’s FMC would be the D74A 2023 Perodua Axia, which leaves us with two facelift models slated to be launched later this year.
Rewind the clock back to early-2020, as Perodua gave its A-segment sedan a comprehensive makeover. But that was 3 years ago and the Bezza is nearing the end of its model lifecycle. Could Perodua inject a little more life before the all-new Bezza arrives some time in the near future?
As for the Perodua Aruz, this 7-seater SUV has remained largely unchanged since it was launched back in 2019. The Aruz gained some updates in late-2021, with the model gaining a new Passion Red colour, as well as integrated side steps. The rest of the model remains unchanged from before.
2023 looks to be a very hectic year for Perodua with these 3 potential model launches. Out of these 3, which one are you looking forward to the most?
