Malaysia vehicle sales data were negative again in July.

Malaysia vehicle sales data

Malaysia vehicle sales data were negative again in July for the fourth month in a row. Japanese makers are moving fast with Honda, Nissan and Mazda on top. New Honda H-RV joined the top ten club.

Economic Outlook

Malaysia’s economy lost momentum in the second quarter, slowing to a 4.9% annual expansion after posting increases at or above 5.6% in the previous three-quarters.

Q2’s figure marked the weakest growth in almost two years and was held back in part by the Goods and Services Tax (GST) implemented in April, and low prices for key Malaysian exports. To compound the issues facing Malaysia’s real economy, recent political events have startled investors and jeopardized the country’s political status quo.

Prime Minister Najib Razak was first accused in July of receiving funds for personal gain from 1 Malaysia Development Baerhad (1MDB), a highly indebted state-owned investment fund. Since then Najib has responded to calls for his resignation by reshuffling his cabinet, suspending media outlets and blocking websites that have reported on the scandal.

Market Outlook

Following the 1.3% loss reported for the first half, aaccording to data released by M.A.A., the Malaysian Automotive Association, the second quarter started with July sales at 58.646 (-2.4%) which was the fourth losing month in a row.

In the first seventh month of the year sales had been 386.424, down 1.5% from the correspondent period last year.

Perspectives for the rest of the year remain  uncertain as the market is under the negative impact of slower economic growth and introduction of new consumer’s good taxation. Moreover, the current tiny level of decline seems encouraging in a general stability of the market.

Competitive Arena

Perodua sold 17.957 vehicles in July (-6.2%) with annual sales at 126.459 (+11.3% and market share at 33.5%. In second place Proton sold10.867 units (-1.6%) with share at 18.7%. Honda in third place maintained the momentum with 8.443 sales (+26.3%) with annual sales at 52.039 (+18.6%).

Behind Toyota with 7.308 sales in July (-11.9%), Nissan with 4.65 (+37.1%) and Mazda with 1.333 (+36.4%).

As far as the ranking by group, in July Perodua was obviously the leader with 30.6% of market share ahead of Proton with 18.5%, Honda with 14.4% and Toyota with 13.5%.

As far as the best-selling models, in July the leader was the Proton Saga with 10.528 units, followed by Perodua Axia with 8.835 and Perodua Myvi with 4.604. The new Honda HR-V ranked in 7th place with 2.487 sales joining the top ten in the year to date ranking.
