Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has always been at the forefront of encouraging Malaysians in innovation, especially in the automotive industry. Today he revealed that he has just received delivery of his brand new Perodua Ativa with a number plate 2020.
In case you’re from a different generation, Tun M introduced Wawasan 2020 (Vision 2020) in 1991, during his first term as Prime Minister of Malaysia. The vision was an encouragement for our country to achieve a self-sufficient industrialised nation by the year 2020.
Tun M’s post praises the Perodua Ativa as a symbol of success as the little SUV is produced by Malaysian engineers. During the launch of the Perodua Ativa, the brand made sure to emphasise that the SUV boasts 95 percent local content. That is the highest initial local content rate for any Perodua model.
There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
