Malaysia 2004-2005: Perodua Kancil takes the lead

Perodua Kancil

After years of domination of the Proton Wira, the Perodua Kancil, a rebadged Daihatsu Mira, takes the lead of car sales in Malaysia in 2004 and 2005. It sells 30,454 units over the first 6 months of 2005 or 11.7% of the market, ahead of the Proton Iswara (7.1%), Wira (6.8%) and Waja (6.7%).

Notice the Proton Gen-2, launched in Q3 2004 to partly replace the best-selling Wira, coming in at #7 with 14,153 sales and 5.4%. On top of the Kancil, Perodua places two more models in the Top 8: the Kelisa at #5 and the Kenari at #8. The Perodua Myvi (a rebadged Daihatsu Sirion) launched in May 2005 and in all likeliness managed to take the lead of the Malaysian market sometime during the second half of 2005.
