KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 5 ― Honda Malaysia took a major hit during the extended lockdown as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, with car sales declining 52 per cent for the year-on-year period between May to July 2021.

Its managing director and CEO Madoka Chujo said the car maker had to close its Pegoh, Melaka manufacturing plant as well as sales offices and dealer showrooms since June, in accordance with the government standard operating procedures during the full movement control order (FMCO).

“With only certain after-sales services allowed and sales and manufacturing operations on halt, it is no surprise that sales have plunged.

“We sold about 5,700 units in this period compared to close to 12,000 units sold in the same period last year when the country was under conditional movement control order (CMCO) and Recovery movement control order (RMCO),” she said in a statement today.
