Perodua has launched the Bezza in Mauritius, making this island nation the second export destination for Malaysia’s best-selling sedan through its authorised distributor Raouf Dusmohamud & Co Ltd.
The Perodua Bezza variants launched in Mauritius include the 1.0L with both automatic and manual transmission, and the 1.3L Premium X also in both automatic and manual.
“Mauritius is a strategic destination for us as this country is one of the most popular tourist destination spots in the world and having the Perodua Bezza here would give it the global exposure that it needs,” said Perodua president and chief executive officer, Datuk Dr Aminar Rashid Salleh.
The 1.0L manual transmission is priced at 562,884 Mauritian Rupees (RM70,405.35) while the 1.0L automatic transmission is priced at 589,268 Mauritian Rupees (RM73,705.45), and the 1.3L Premium X manual transmission is priced at 657,699 Mauritian Rupees (RM 82,264.78) while the 1.3L automatic transmission is priced at 684,990 Mauritian Rupees (RM 85,678.33).
“We target to sell on average 168 units of the Perodua Bezza per year targeting car rental businesses, city taxis, young professionals and those with young families.
“The Bezza is an exceptional car as it is fuel efficient, has low cost of ownership, spacious, well designed and well made. We believe this model will be well accepted here,” Dusmohamud added.
With this launch, Raouf Dusmohamud & Co Ltd now distributes three Perodua models, the Axia, Alza and Bezza.
The company was appointed Perodua’s authorised distributor in 1996 and have sold over 2,000 Perodua vehicles up to 2016 with the Perodua Viva as its bestselling model, with 711 units sold between 2008 and 2014.
