Perodua Myvi production hits a snag

By ahmadzulizwan, 21 August 2018

Production of the new Myvi has been temporarily ceased for the time being due to a supply disruption at one its vendors. For that, about 3,000 customers will not be able to register their new purchase before the end of August. Perodua has stated that they will bear full responsibility and will ensure production resumes as soon as possible.

“We wish to apologise most sincerely to our customers who have been waiting patiently for their new Myvi,” said Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Dr Zahari Husin. Production of other models is on track.

He added that customers’ frustration are understood, which is why Perodua is working on a suitable form of compensation for affected buyers. However he did not reveal the form of compensation, other than the company will get in touch with buyers via the outlets.

Since the car’s launch in November 2017, over 68,000 cars have been delivered to customers from the 120,000 bookings received. Perodua has sold over 140,000 units of vehicles overall between January and July this year which is 19 per cent more than the same duration in 2017 with 118,600 units.
