Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua) is set to launch a brand new car model to replace both its Kancil and Kelisa mini cars in Malaysia. It is strongly rumoured to be named – rather globally – as Viva. Set to be offered with 660cc, 850cc as well as 1000cc engines, this is another model expected to be a hit, likely repeating the runaway success of its elder sibling, the Myvi.
Perodua’s managing director Hafiz Syed Abu Bakar has set a target of 7,000 units per month for this all-new offering from the second national auto maker. All variants will have DVVT (variable valve timing) and EFI (electronic fuel injection). Prices are expected to be ranging from RM28k to RM45k, depending on specs, trims and transmission options too.
