all-new 2022 perodua alza bookings now 39k units strong, 4,000 units delivered

Alongside its July sales report, Perodua also revealed that the recently-launched all-new Alza has now received over 39,000 bookings. The figure represents a significant increase over the 30k that was revealed during the model’s launch two weeks ago, which itself was already a record figure for the national carmaker.

Of the 39,000 bookings, Perodua has already delivered 4,000 units of the 2022 Alza to new owners. The company also revealed that 65% of all bookings are for the range-topping AV variant, while a whopping 70% of buyers are also opting for the GearUp bodykit, which costs RM2,500 and can be installed on all variants.

Perodua attributes the positive response to the expiring SST exemptions at the end of June. However, the 9,000 bookings in just two weeks shows that demand for the all-new seven-seater MPV is still healthy, despite a higher price tag.

In order to cater for the demand, Perodua is considering to expand its plant’s production capacity for the Alza from the initially-planned 3,000 units per month up to 4,000. The company reassures that those who have placed their bookings before the expiry of the SST exemptions will receive their vehicles by the March 31, 2023 registration cut-off date.

As a brief recap, the all-new Perodua Alza is currently offered in Malaysia in three variants, with prices starting for at RM62,500 for the entry-level 1.5 X variant, moving up to RM75,500 for the range-topping AV.

All variants are equipped with the same 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated inline-four engine making 105 hp and 138 Nm of torque, with power sent to the front wheels via the brand’s Dual-Mode CVT (D-CVT) gearbox. Perodua’s ASA 3.0 advanced driver assistance suite is also standard across all variants.
