PETALING JAYA: Perodua’s first energy-efficient sedan, the “Perodua Bezza”, will be open for booking at all 181 showrooms from tomorrow.
The sedan, fully designed by Malaysians with strong support from Daihatsu Motor Company of Japan, will be launched on July 21.
It comes in five variants – the 1.0 litre manual transmission and automatic transmission; the 1.3 litre “Premium X” manual and automatic transmission; and the 1.3 litre “advanced version” automatic transmission.
Perodua president and chief executive officer, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh, said in a statement: “This sedan is the culmination of decades of technology collaboration and technology transfer with our partner Daihatsu Motor Co Ltd.
“It is with their guidance that we are now able to stand on our own with this ground-breaking new model and it is the sedan that fits every Malaysian’s needs,” he said.
Aminar said the Perodua Bezza is its second transformation model after the Axia and its first global-ready car with the 1.3L Advance variant packed with advanced safety features.
The car comes in six different colours, which include Sugar Brown and Ocean Blue for the 1.3L variants, which are new metallic colours for Perodua, as well as the existing colours of Lava Red, Ebony Black, Glittering Silver and Solid Ivory White. Perodua uses eco-friendly water-based paint which also provides a better finish.
