Perodua Global Manufacturing Sdn Bhd produces 250,000 vehicle since operations started in August 2014

This is a milestone for Perodua, the Malaysian compact car manufacturer. Their 'advanced manufacturing arm' Perodua Global Manufacturing Sdn Bhd (PGMSB) which assembles their newer (EEV) approved cars like the Axia and the Bezza has produced its 250,000th vehicle recently. Quite an achievement as the facility started operations in August 2014. It also shows the response that the Malaysian people have for the new A-segment compacts that Perodua have decided to offer. 


The PGMSB plant is certified as Energy Efficient by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) due to its minimal energy usage as well as its use of more environmental friendly chemicals. PGMSB has 2,150 staff and is able to produce 200,000 units per annum on two shift-cycle. 

This plant also benefits from the recent opening of the Daihatsu Perodua Engine Manufacturing Sdn Bhd (DPEM) RM500 million joint venture plant in Sendayan, Negeri Sembilan which manufacturers engine components as well as Daihatsu-Perodua transmission facility Akashi Kikai Industry (M) Sdn Bhd, in Senawang. Both these facilities supply the parts required to build the Axia and the Bezza. From here you see how much a company like Perodua contributes to the economy on a larger scale. It isn't just jobs in one locale.

Other important numbers that can be gathered in this Perodua year end bit of news, which was provided during a media drive trip to Hatyai is that Perodua sold 167,000 vehicles for the first 10 months of 2016, of which the Axia was the best seller with 44.2% sold this year followed by the Myvi at 24.9%, Alza 17.3% and the Bezza at 13.6% (since July 2016).

The Bezza sedan, which Perodua’s latest model is popular. 22,000 vehicles have been delivered since it was launched in July this year and the average waiting period for the Bezza is less than 2 weeks after the financial institution approves the hire purchase loan. An important piece of news to those who want to purchase new cars from Perodua (i.e the waiting period is not a long one).

And do note the offers you see below for both the Axia and the Bezza. Save up to RM1,200 for the Axia and up to RM3,200 for the Bezza. Model dependant and on the usual T&Cs too.
