For the very first time, Motor Trader has made available the sales ranking for Eastern Malaysia. The states of Sabah and Sarawak are completely separated from mainland Malaysia by the South China sea, and the best-selling models are radically different, with a distinct focus on pick-ups.
Third in the nation-wide ranking, the Perodua Viva is the best-seller in both Sabah and Sarawak with a total of 12,670 sales and an amazing 17.6% market share. The Proton Saga is #2 with 9,059 sales (12.6%) and the Perodua Myvi is 3rd with 8,393 sales (11.6%). Toyota is the #2 brand behind Perodua in the region and it places the Toyota Hilux in 4th in both states with a total of 7,643 sales and 10.6% share.
Other Sabah/Sarawak curiosities include the 5th place of the Isuzu D-Max in Sabah (2,336 sales, 6.9%), the 10th spot of the Mitsubishi Triton in the general ranking (1,504 sales, 2.1%) and the 16th place of the Ford Ranger (796 sales) as well as the 13th position of the Toyota Rush in Sabah with 455 units sold.
