Perodua Secures its First Ride-Sharing Fleet Purchase Ever - 1,000 Units of the Perodua Bezza and Axia
Perodua have announced that a ride-hailing and a ride-sharing service provider operating in Malaysia have purchased a combined 1,000 Axias and Bezzas. According to Perodua, the fleet sale to these service providers was significant to Perodua as it opens up yet another market for the compact carmaker.
No mention of the actual ride-sharing service but it most likely is the largest one around, by that I mean that it isn't Uber because Uber is no longer in Malaysia. Most likely they're just keeping mum because the other party wants it to be so.
“This is an important endorsement by companies that rely on good quality and safe cars
which are also economical to maintain,” said Dato' Dr Zahari Husin, Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director.
“The proliferation of ride-hailing and ride-sharing services in Malaysia has revolutionised the way we get around, and Perodua is proud to be a part of this revolution towards more efficient and sustainable transport for all. We thank them for their support,” added Dato’ Dr Zahari.
This will add to the over 300,000 Axias and 100,000 Bezzas which have been sold since their launches
in 2014 and 2016 respectively. These compact cars are both government-certified Energy-Efficient Vehicles (EEV) and have led their respective vehicle market segments since their inception.
