Perodua just revealed its sales data for the first half of 2022, and there are some interesting details to go through. On the very last day of SST exemption (30 June), for one, the national carmaker received a whopping 25,100 bookings in a single day.
The carmaker did not give a model breakdown of the bookings made on that day, though there’s no denying that this is a very, very impressive figure. Evidently, Malaysians want to secure the tax-free prices – as long as the car is registered by 31 March 2023 – with Perodua before SST is applicable again from 1 July onwards.
“There was a significant rush in vehicle booking especially when the government extended the registration period to 31 March 2023 and we thank Malaysians for choosing Perodua as their brand of choice,” said the CEO and president of Perodua, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“Speaking of the sales tax exemption; on the last day of the initiative, Perodua saw the highest single booking day on 30 June 2022 with 25,100 vehicles orders taken. This is unprecedented and a testament to the growth potential of Malaysia’s automotive industry given the right incentive,” he added.
