According to Dato’ Seri Ben Yeoh, Managing Director of Bermaz Motor, the decision to bring in the CBU version is basically due to the present production constraints and the long delivery period. The CX-5 2.5 will be locally produced once the production capacity is increased following the commissioning of a new assembly line.
