KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 6): The Perodua Myvi was proclaimed the winner in the Entry-Level Segment at the 2018 Malaysia Car of the Year Awards ceremony organised by the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) at the Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.
In a statement today, the carmaker said last year’s iteration of the awards saw the Perodua Bezza and Perodua Myvi win in the Below-RM50,000 and RM50,001-RM60,000 categories respectively.
The then-new Perodua Bezza also won in the Entry-Level, People’s Choice and Most Significant Design Achievement categories at the 2016 Malaysia Car of the Year Awards.
“Since its launch in November 2017, nearly 85,000 units of the third-generation Perodua Myvi have been sold in Malaysia, out of over 138,000 bookings to date,” said Perodua President and chief executive officer Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh when receiving Perodua’s award.
“We thank all Malaysians for your steadfast and overwhelming support for our Myvi. We are glad and humbled that we succeeded in offering Malaysians a car that you truly want and love, and will take this as motivation for us to serve you even better,” Aminar added.
Last week, the sporty Myvi GT styling exercise drew an abundance of public attention at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS18).
It will be showcased again at the inaugural International Automodified Kuala Lumpur (IAMKL) show at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Dec 8 and 9.
