MALAYSIA: Perodua to make automatic transmissions in 2012

Perodua, Malaysia’s second national car company, plans to begin construction of a new electronic automatic transmission (EAT) plant in Malaysia in the fourth quarter of 2011.

The new facility will likely be located near its existing car assembly facility in Sungai Choh, Selangor, and is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012. The technology will be licensed from Daihatsu Motor, one of Perodua's main shareholders.
