Perodua delivers 28.3% more vehicles as monthly output rises

Market leader Perodua has been quiet for a while but it’s likely that the carmaker has been giving more attention to addressing the large backlog of orders. With production improving after a long period of challenges due to the shortage of microprocessors for the electronic systems, Perodua now has more supply of vehicles to send to dealers.

The carmaker reported a 28.3% increase in deliveries for the third quarter this year to 88,537 units, compared with 69,011 units in the same quarter of 2022. This was due to production increasing by 21.7% to 91,258 units from 75,196 units in the same quarter of 2022.

“The third quarter of 2023 is our starting point in terms of increasing monthly production above 30,000 units per month as supplies of raw materials and parts can now catch up with demand,” said Perodua President & CEO, Dato’ Sri Zainal Abidin Ahmad.

“This increase in production shows the potential of the Malaysian automotive ecosystem as they further improve their economies of scale without sacrificing quality and cost efficiency,” he added.

Dato’ Sri Zainal said, with the improvements, Perodua’s production and sales outlook for the fourth quarter of 2023 would be at their highest in the company’s history.

Cumulatively for 2023, the carmaker has produced 245,341 units up till the end of September, a 18.6% increase from 206,837 units in the same period last year. Vehicle deliveries over the 9-month period totalled 233,227, as opposed to 196,354 units last year.

“We remain committed to reducing our customers’ waiting period. We believe that the waiting period from January 2024 onwards would be better managed. We are also on track to achieve our registration target of 314,000 for this year,” Dato’ Sri Zainal said.
