New light vehicle sales are up 1% year-on-year in Malaysia in January to 50,602 registrations, continuing a record-breaking run that has now lasted over two years. Below the two local manufacturers and traditional leaders Perodua (31.8%) and Proton (17.6%), Honda surprises this month by taking the lead of foreign manufacturers thanks to 6,522 sales and 12.9% share. The continued success of the City and the arrival of the HR-V, which has reportedly been met with very strong interest, have contributed to this historical result: Toyota is traditionally the #1 foreigner in Malaysia, even outselling Proton to rank #2 overall in December. The Japanese manufacturer is however down to #5 this month below Nissan. Notice also Chana, whose Era range of mini pickup trucks (aka Chana Star) lifts it to #20 overall with 105 sales vs. #30 and 341 over the Full Year 2014.
