After months of extended COVID-19 lockdown, things are looking up again for the automotive sector. Perodua, in particular, sold as many as 14,160 units in September 2021. Compared to its sales figure in August 2021 (6,988 units), this is a 102% jump in sales.
“The automotive supply chain has shown improvements but have yet to reach their full potential. We are continuously working with our suppliers and dealers to further improve productivity and safety,” said the CEO and President of Perodua, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
He elaborated that the gradual growth in Perodua’s production and sales are to ensure that strict quality control measures are still in place. “We thank our customers that have continued to be patient with us as we further improve production,” Dato’ Zainal added.
“We do apologise for any inconvenience caused by the delay in the delivery and we will assist our customers in any way that we can to ensure that their Perodua is delivered as soon as possible,” Dato’ Zainal said in the press release.
If you’re still waiting to take delivery of your brand new Perodua model, now you know why. After all, it’s better to wait a tad longer for a vehicle with no major quality control issues, right?
