The Malaysian new car market is losing steam in 2015: down 2% year-on-year in June to 57.437 registrations and down 3% year-to-date at 322.184 units. Perodua follows the market at -2% to 16.475 deliveries and 28.7% market share while Proton (-8%) and Toyota (-7%) lose market share. Reversely, Honda (+19%) enjoys the effects of the HR-V launch in 4th place with 8.668 sales and even remains above Toyota year-to-date at 43.596 vs. 38.796. Nissan (+7%) but most strikingly Mazda (+27%), Isuzu (+36%) and Mercedes (+91%) also buck the trend inside the Top 10, whereas further down Ford (-23%), Mitsubishi (-26%), Volkswagen (-41%) and Hyundai (-50%) implode. As a reminder for the Malaysian new car market, due to the Malaysian Competition Commissioner’s belief that publication of the sales volumes of individual models will result in prices going up as traders ‘exploit’ such information, we have been unauthorised to share models data for the past 3 years. Such transparency, which consumers would like to see, is considered an offence under the Competition Act.
