Malaysia’s vehicle sales fall 13.6% in April
Of the 42,177 units sold, passenger vehicles accounted for 37,893 units while commercial vehicles accounted for the remaining 4,284 units.
The data also showed that Malaysia’s vehicle sales also declined by around 19% to 173,432 units in the first four months of 2016, down 40,134 units from a year earlier. The MAA attributed this to stricter hire purchase loan approvals and greater caution on the part of buyers.
The MAA also reported that they expect vehicles sales to remain around the same levels in May as they were in April.
