Perodua Operation will be Impacted By Japan Earthquake

 

07 April 2011 - Malaysia's biggest automaker Perodua today issued a statement saying that its operations have been impacted by the earthquake and tsunami which hit Japan on March 11.

Perodua, which is partly owned by Japan's Daihatsu Motor Corp., says "adjustments" have been made to ensure inventories last until May. It wouldn't elaborate.

In a statement Thursday, the compact car maker said it was in talks with Daihatsu and other vendors to resolve the problem, which it described as a "temporary setback."

The disruption has already led Perodua to delay the launch of a new car to the second half of the year. This has affected the new Myvi’s arrival timeline – which is supposed to be coming sometime this month – is unknown, but the issuance of the statement might indicate that there could possibly be some delay on the cards.

It faces pressure to introduce new models to bolster sales and maintain leadership in Southeast Asia's largest passenger car market amid competition from domestic rival Proton.
