Announced on October 4, 2021, delivery of Perodua vehicles in Malaysia continue to improve for the third consecutive month by 102% to 14,160 units in September from 6,988 units in August as the supply situation gradually improves.
In the first 9 months of 2021, Perodua sold 119,093 vehicles, down 17.9% YoY. In comparing Q2 to Q3, sales declined by 44.6% to 21,803 units between July and September from 39,381 vehicles registered between April and June 2021.
The second national lockdown began on June 1, 2021 and was lifted in stages beginning August 16. Perodua said the automotive supply chain has shown improvements but have yet to reach their full potential. The gradual growth in both production and sales were in keeping with the strict quality control measures throughout its operations. Perodua said Q4 offers a better outlook than the previous 2 quarters, especially the marked improvement in the reduction of COVID-19 cases nationwide and the nearly 90% vaccination rate of the Malaysian adult population.

On September 3, 2021, Malaysia Perodua president and CEO announced the downward revision of its 2021 sales target to 214,000 units from the 240,000 units announced at the beginning of the year, following suspension in its sales and production as a result of extended lockdown measures. Perodua stated that based on the time and resources available, the firm is reducing its 2021 sales target by 10.8%.
Perodua revealed that its main concern at the moment is to ensure that the automotive industry will be able to sustain itself in 2021 as COVID-19 and the semiconductor supply shortage continue to haunt the manufacturers both domestically and globally. On the semiconductor chip shortage, Perodua was able to secure enough to ensure production would resume smoothly in 2021 and that most of Perodua’s outstanding order would be met within the year, adding that for now, the semiconductor chip supply is still a global issue and Perodua is working with its partners and suppliers to limit any disruption it may cause.
