Special edition of Perodua Myvi launched in Brunei last week
Malaysians are up in arms that Perodua launched variant of the Myvi, in Brunei which isn’t available in Malaysia, the Perodua Myvi S-edition.
The real picture is that the Perodua Myvi S-edition (which lives up to its name) is not an official Perodua variant. It’s something that Perodua Brunei cooked up on their own. The bodykit and other add-ons are not official Perodua accessories, nor were they approved. Looks like Perodua Brunei could be in big trouble.
Below, is the Official Statement by Perodua President & Chief Executive Officer on the launch of the Perodua Myvi S-edition in Brunei
On 4th July 2020, Perodua Brunei introduced its own version of the Myvi 1.3L G variant, dubbed the S-Edition, which include enhanced body kits which were sourced independently by our appointed distributor GHK Motors.
We are engaging with GHK Motors for more details about this variant to ensure that the additions to this variant meet the required standards.
Based on the feedback from GHK Motors, the introduction of the Myvi S-Edition was its attempt to introduce a variant that was better suited to their market needs.
We understand that the introduction of the Myvi S-Edition has created some confusion with our loyal customers and we hope that this statement has given some clarification to this matter.
