The Perodua Myvi a.k.a. the King of the Road has once again become the subject on social media, with pictures of several Perodua Myvi in police colours going viral online.
In a statement, the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) said the newly outfitted Perodua Myvi will be used for patrolling purposes.
PDRM added that this is also part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative between Perodua and the police.
Meanwhile, there are only 5 units to date and only selected police stations will receive the new Perodua Myvi patrol vehicle.
So far, 2 of the 5 vehicles have been distributed to the police in Ulu Yam Bharu and Serendah in the Hulu Selangor district.
The patrol vehicles were built and outfitted by SM Offroad and Outdoor Equipment (SMOE), a company in Banting that sells components and accessories for 4X4 vehicles.
Based on the images shared by SMOE, the model used for the new patrol cars is the highest variant of the pre-facelift, the 1.5L AV.
According to CariCarz, the car uses a naturally aspirated 2NR-VE petrol engine with a maximum output of 102 hp/137 Nm. Power is channelled to the wheels using a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The Myvi patrol cars stand out from others thanks to the police logos emblazoned all over the car. At the same time, while most PDRM patrol cars typically come in white, the new Myvi patrol car comes in glittering silver.
