Car manufacturer Perodua has reported that, despite the credit crunch, it has managed to increase August registrations by 2.63 per cent in comparison with 2007.
The result is particularly impressive considering that the market as a whole is down 18.58 per cent on last year – Perodua believes that its ability to offer Britains "best value cars" helps it to be one of the few manufacturers to see growth in such a difficult market.
Increased registrations for June were also achieved by the company which has been particularly proud of the performance of its Kelisa car.
Marketed as a "great value city car", with prices starting from £4,499, it has increased registrations for August by 66 per cent compared to last year. Perodua claims the model is Britain’s lowest-priced new car.
The Myvi supermini and Kenari mini-MPV are also key players in the Perodua range. Myvi has a continued £1,000 cash-back offer, while Kenari has a £500 cash-back offer if bought first-hand.
