The partner, Daihatsu to take a majority

The automobile industry is one of the fast development sector as compared to the other industry. Perodua strengthen their competitive advantage by allowed the Japanese partner, Daihatsu to take a majority position in the manufacturing plant. Through a partnership with the Daihatsu, Perodua able to provide a range of vehicles with advanced or innovative technology and high quality at reasonable or affordable prices. As a result, Perodua successfully becomes the bestselling model in Malaysia.  However, the Perodua range of vehicle still contain some of the weakness which can be overcome by learning new technology from its competitors especially from Japan. Many of its competitors such as Honda, Nissan and Toyota manufacture their vehicle with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) instead of the traditional technology which is an automatic or manual transmission, mainly due to their efficiency. CVT have the main advantage over traditional transmission which is when vehicle travelling uphill, CVT can seamlessly provide power without shifting, whereas the traditional technology will struggle. Next, CVT will improve the engine control which will reduce the possibility that driver lose the motor control on the vehicle and it achieve better fuel economy by maximize the fuel efficiency or reduce the fuel consumption up to 30% or above. It will also provide smooth and security driving environment for the driver. The cost of the CVT is low so it is suitable for Perodua to using it to produce high quality vehicle at affordable prices. Besides that, the body structure of the Perodua vehicle is also need to be improve in order to reduce the number of road accident fatality with deaths. Perodua should adopt the advanced technology of Toyota. One of the safety features of Toyota Vios is the energy absorption body structure that pursue the better collision safety performance. This is an excellent safety performance attributed to its high tensile body frame that effectively absorbs and dispenses impact energy in a frontal collision while dispersing high impact energy during side collision. By using this technology, it will strengthen the body structure of Perodua vehicle and reduce the injury of the driver and passenger during a collision.Moreover, Perodua may also adopt the advanced technology of the Toyota in order to further improve its safety performance and reduce the accidents especially driving at night. The Electro Chromic Mirror will provide better visibility for driver when driving at night by automatically adjusts the amount of reflected glare. Besides, there are high number of blind spot accidents occur each year in Malaysia because driver are unable to see the oncoming vehicles due to their line of sight being blocked by a component in the vehicle. Perodua should adopt the blind spot monitor technology from Toyota as a tool of lane change assist for driver in order to better detect a vehicles by using a sub-millimetre wave radar. The blind spot monitor will flashed a sign on the side mirror to warns driver for any oncoming vehicles before changing lanes. However, the cost of the Electro Chromic Mirror is a little bit high so Perodua may adopt other similar technology to replace it in order to lower down the cost.Furthermore, there are increasing number of individuals willing to purchase a environmentally fuel efficient car. A hybrid car is becoming more and more popular and many of the competitors has released their own hybrid car in the markets. Therefore, Perodua should used advanced technology to produce a hybrid car in order to have the ability to compete with other large competitors and also attract those individuals who are concern about the environment to purchase. Hybrid car is use conventional engine and electric motor. The hybrid car is environmentally friendly vehicle which will reduce the fuel consumption and conserves energy. This is a win win situation where the individuals can save money and help the environment.Safety feature should be the top priority for every consumer when buying a new car. In order to reduce the road accident victims and decrease the injuries caused in the road accident fatalities, Perodua is recommend to have an emergency call system in its vehicles. It is useful when the driver was involved in an accident at unfamiliar location and do not know about the local emergency telephone numbers. In European Union, they has requires all the car manufacturers to install an emergency call system in their vehicles from the year of 2018 which show that this technology is very important and useful system that will increase the safety on the road . Perodua can adopt similar technology such as HondaLink Assist from Honda Accord, this technology will be activate by connect with the Bluetooth linked phone. When the driver was involved in the accident and the airbags are goes off, this technology will automatically call an operator to find out the location of the vehicle and will try to contact the driver. If the driver was unable to communicate with the operator, then they will call the public rescue services and send them to the driver location.In addition, Perodua may adopt the Tire Pressure Monitoring System to maintain or improve the safety driving environment and to avoid accident especially when driving in the highway. For some of the driver especially those young people, they are unfamiliar or do not know how to check the tire air pressure so this technology may provide an assistance to them. This system in the vehicle is to monitor the tire air pressure and will alerts the driver when it is too high or too low by appearing a warning light on the dashboard. So, the driver can take an immediately action to overcomes the problems such as when the TPMS Light comes on if the tire air pressure is too low or too high, the driver can immediately find the nearest petrol station to take away or add any gas. Thus, the driver will have an opportunity to avoid tire blowout which might cause the driver lose control of the car. However, the cost of this system will be more expensive to maintain as compared to non-equipped tires. Therefore, Perodua may adopt other similar technology such as FOBO TIRE from Amazon, which is a small technology, the cost is more affordable and it has the similar function as the TPMS but need to works with the latest bluetooth linked phone device. Driver can monitor tire air pressure at anytime by checking on the FOBO TIRE app in their smart phone.Perodua also recommend to use the Automatic High Beam (AHB) technology from its competitor, Toyota or its Japanese partner, Daihatsu. Currently, Perodua does not have this types of technology in its vehicles. Perodua New Myvi use the LED headlight that are just too bright and will impair the oncoming driver. As a result, it will not only harm the visibility of the driver and also may lead to an accident due to unable to identify and see the oncoming cars on the road. AHB is useful to overcome this problem because it will automatically adjust the brightness of the headlights to provide better visibility when it detect nearby car on oncoming lane. This technology also help to better detect any pedestrians at night especially when the pedestrians wear a dark clothes. If there are oncoming vehicle, the AHB will automatically lower down the brightness of the headlight or switch to low bean in order to less likely affect the visibility of the oncoming drivers. After that, it will switch to high bean or become brighter when there are no oncoming vehicle and the area in front of the car is dark.
