Recent surveys have shown that an economical car like the Perodua Kelisa could dramatically cut the average family’s weekly expenditure. Our ongoing goal at Perodua is to inform motorists about the benefits provided by a Kelisa 5-door super mini including its excellent standard specification, multiple safety features, high quality engineering and unbeatable affordability. Perodua’s Kelisa EX continues to be Britain’s least expensive car to own and run over 3 years/60,000 miles, at just 13.8 pence per mile according to independent motor research specialists CAP, and there is now even more evidence to prove Kelisa is number one when it comes to low-cost motoring.
The survey on family spending published by the Office for National Statistics finds that the average UK household ‘spends £59 per week on transport, including buying and running vehicles’1 and that this represents a family’s biggest weekly expense. National Statistics have studied car use in Great Britain for the Department of Transport and established that ‘car travel now accounts for four fifths of the total distance travelled per person’2. The same survey also finds that single car households have an average annual mileage of 8,300 miles.
If these figures are taken as a rough guide then the average one-car household in Britain can be said to cover approximately 160 miles in a week. This can be multiplied by the 13.8 pence per mile it costs to run a Kelisa EX to reveal a total expenditure of just £22.08 a week: less than half the amount an average family spends per week on transport.
With running costs as low as these along with a combined fuel consumption figure of 55.4 mpg, the Kelisa provides the ideal solution for any family requiring a vehicle that is both inexpensive and efficient. The Kelisa is also versatile and fun to drive due to its swift 1.0 litre, 3-cylinder engine. Add to this a high standard specification which includes dual airbags, power steering, side impact protection, seat belt pre-tensioners, rear door child safety locks and an advanced engine immobiliser and you have a winning combination. Mixing practicality, quality and value for money, Kelisa is available to test drive across the UK through Perodua’s network of seventy dealerships.
