Perodua has given the assurance to its customers that it will continue to support their ownership of previous generation MYVI with the opening of a new parts production line dedicated to the second-generation MYVI, operated by Perodua’s vendor IQM Sdn Bhd at Proton City. The production line includes body components such as hoods, door, fenders, quarter panels and roofs.
“For our customers’ safety, convenience and peace-of-mind, we are giving our commitment to them that we will continue to produce high-quality and affordable parts for their Perodua vehicles,” Perodua Auto Corporation Sdn Bhd President Mr Takahashi Masanori said at the MYVI Service Parts Line official opening last Friday. “We elected to outsource parts production for the second-generation Myvi because our manufacturing plants are already at peak capacity. Being already a manufacturer of Viva parts since production of the model ended in 2014, IQM was a natural choice for this project,” he said.
Apart from the second-generation MYVI and Viva, the original parts for the first-generation MYVI, Kelisa and even the Kancil are still being produced by vendors in Malaysia to today.
More than 519,000 second generation MYVIs were produced from 2011 to 2017 and many of them are still running on the road.
For now, the Myvi Service Parts Line at IQM Tanjung Malim produces only body components owing to their high demand. Engine parts for the second-generation Myvi continue to be produced on a one-shot basis at PMSB in Rawang, while other parts are produced by various vendors.
“IQM Sdn Bhd has been a vendor of Perodua’s since 2002. Over the years, Perodua and IQM have built a strong relationship based on trust, quality and absolute never-ending loyalty to our customers,” said IQM Executive Director Aidil Azlan Mohd Fitri.
