Malaysia Vehicle Sales Jan-Jun 2017

The Perodua Alza is a popular model 

Sales were down 12.3% in June but up 3.3% YTD. I would rather have the data without commercial vehicles but this is what comes so beggars can't be choosers. Because it is a protected market, the car companies that manufacture here dominate.

Proton was historically the most popular make, manufacturing cars that were based on Mitsubishi technology. In 2006, the other local brand Perodua took over the lead and now enjoys around 35% of all sales. It's vehicles are Daihatsu models, which in turn is part of the Toyota empire.

In 2017, Honda has been a big mover and Proton enjoyed a mini revival. Meanwhile Nissan hit a wall it seems. MPV vehicles are popular as is the case in many Asian nations so if a brand's range includes a strong presence there, things will go well in Malaysia.

The chart below shows a % symbol that represents market share. The +/- column is increase or decrease based on the first six month's market share of 2017 against the full 2016 year.
