Not content with heading the CAP Network top 30 for the past five months with Kelisa - Britain's least expensive new car to own and run over 3 years/60,000 miles - Perodua has gone one better with the introduction of the even more affordable Kelisa EX starting at just £4,999. Price adjustments on two more Kelisa models further enhance the affordability of the range.
Pitched within a few hundred pound of the previous Nippa city car, Kelisa EX provides an affordable step up for cost conscious motorists looking for a modern and practical 5-door city car boasting a high standard specification. Kelisa EX includes power-assisted steering, twin airbags, side-impact protection, seat belt pretensioners and rear door child locks.
" With the demise of Nippa, Kelisa EX steps in to offer an outstanding alternative vehicle at an equally unbeatable price," says Tim Slaughter, Perodua UK's Managing Director.
Kelisa EX carries virtually the same trim levels of the EXi, but with a reduced warranty to one-year/12,000 miles. Crucially, it gives buyers the option of a new, high technology vehicle, starting below £5,000 in a sector previously dominated by second or third generation vehicles.
The Kelisa range now comprises four models; the new EX at £4,999 delivered*, the EXi (formerly the EX) at £5,199 delivered*; the GXi (formerly the GX) at £5,699 delivered* and the EZi automatic (formerly the EZ) which remains at £6,600 delivered**, but now includes electrically operated door mirrors as standard.
While the Perodua EX offers sophistication to the sub-£5000 sector of the new city car market, the rest of the Kelisa range seriously undercuts the opposition higher up the price range, offering big savings for buyers in this hugely competitive sector.
