KUALA LUMPUR, — Motor vehicle sales volume in September 2009 was 2,469 units or five per cent lower than the previous month, the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) said Thursday.
The lower sales was attributed by the association to the short working month due to the Hari Raya festive holidays.
“Sales volume for October 2009 is expected to be maintained,” MAA said in a statement Thursday.
Motor vehicle sales for September 2009 decreased by nine per cent to 46,069 units from 50,729 units in the same period last year, the association said.
Year-to-date September 2009 motor vehicle sales declined by seven per cent to 397,619 units from 429,913 units previously.
