With the hype Perodua Myvi has been getting, no wonder it has been crowned the ‘King of The Road’ by fellow Malaysians. Remember that story when a Myvi collided with a police car or when a woman who was pushed out of a Myvi? Yes, the Myvi has got itself into a lot of mischief.
But there’s one rumour in particular suggesting that everyone’s favourite car is turning away from its dark side and might help fight crime. Recently, there has been not one, but two videos going viral in the past week revealing the possibility that the Myvi might become the new police patrol car.
The first video was taken by TikTok user @zaki_ahmad03 behind a fence and uploaded on Saturday (6th August). The Myvi was spotted being lowered from the car trailer with livery coloured blue, yellow and green plastered on the vehicle. The logo and word ‘POLICE’ (POLIS) can clearly be seen on the side of the door.
The next day (Sunday, 7th August), the second video was posted on TikTok by @infodashcam. In this video, the user managed to catch another trailer that stopped at the side of the road, with three Myvi cars on it, having similar stickers.
The videos have caused much excitement among netizens with some praising the car for being recognised by the police and promoted to a police patrol car. Others had also joked that the police will be able to fight against crime faster with the help of the Myvi.
For now, there has been no official statement released on this matter. Regardless, netizens have implied that the Myvi might be used as an Auxiliary Police (Polis Bantuan) vehicle in the Perodua factory due to the Perodua sticker seen on the rear and side of the car.
