If you recently ordered
Malaysia's favourite car
a Perodua Myvi, you might have to wait a little longer than expected.
reported that the best-selling model of the company, which is none other than the new Myvi, is currently facing a supply disruption
at one of its vendors.
So, unfortunately, the production of the latest Myvi has been temporarily halted.
As a result, about 3,000 hopeful new owners of the vehicle would not be able to register their new Myvi
before the end of this month.
These customers were initially supposed to receive their cars before 1 September, you know, before the sales and service tax (SST) is officiall implemented across Malaysia.
However, Perodua said in a statement that they would bear the full responsiblity.
The local automotive company will take all the necessary steps to make sure that they resume production as soon as possible.
"We wish to apologise most sincerely to our customers who have been waiting patiently for their new Myvi," Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd managing director Zahari Husin said.
Perodua will also make delivery the new Myvi to the affected customers a priority.
This is likely due to the surge in new vehicle purchase
since the goods and services tax (GST) was zero-rated from 1 June.
Between January and July, Perodua sold roughly 140,000 vehicles, 19 per cent more than the previous corresponding period last year.
Furthermore, since the new Myvi was launched last November, the company has successfully delivered over 68,000 units out of 120,000 bookings.
Sorry, guys! You're going to have to bear with your old cars for now.
