Next-gen Toyota Vios could be developed by Perodua, to debut in 2022?

Earlier this year, we reported that Perodua will become Daihatsu's regional R&D hub, and that it will be developing a new sedan for the South East Asia region. Where it got interesting was the part of the presentation slides that showed four silhouettes of unknown cars of various body types. While Perodua’s CEO Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad cautioned us against reading too much into it, he did confirm that one of it is a sedan and it would be a big project.Fast forward to to

2021 Perodua Ativa要比Proton X50更加本地化?

是的,你没有看错:近日发布的2021 Perodua Ativa,要比Proton X50更加“马来西亚”!Proton在2020年10月推出Proton X50时,他们在发布会上声称,这款新SUV使用了约45%的本地零部件,并拥有406个吉利缤越所没有的独特部件。推荐阅读:Review: 2020 Proton X50 - all the pros and flaws about Malaysias most-hyped SUV!但2021 Perodua Ativa在这个方面更进了一步,因为Perodua表示,Ativa将使用95%的本地零部件,这个数字已经与Perodua Bezza、Perodua Myvi和Perodua Aruz不相上下了。不过,我们必须说明的是,“本地零部件”这个词目前的定义依旧比较模糊,车企很容易通过曲解概念来获得国内税退税。其实,我国的许多制造商/装配商都会从其它国家进口汽车零部件,并在国内将这些海外零部件装配成模块,然后将这些半成品标榜为“本地部件”。而实际上,这些部件并没有在本
