- Perodua Kelisa
First introduced in 2001, Perodua Kelisa had a relatively short run and was discontinued in 2007 when the Perodua Viva Elite, which managed to gain a huge popularity, was launched into the market replacing this car. Nevertheless, from the beginning, the Perodua Kelisa has essentially been a remake of the Japanese Kei-car the Daihatsu Cuore (also known as the Mira). When Daihatsu ceased producing the car in Japan, Perodua took over the production of the 3-cylinder car, which offers great fuel economy due to its small weight and tiny, efficient engine. Currently, a used Perodua Kelisa from the Sri Lankan market can be bought for around Rs. 1.4 million, depending on its specs as well as its built year.

Perodua Hybrid Vehicles Found in Sri Lanka
Since Perodua is mostly focusing on low budget vehicles, the company has also been keen to make its range of cars more fuel efficient, in order to them to be even more appealing to middle income buyers. Most Perodua made cars can achieve around 15 km/l on a combined drive cycle even without having any special fuel saving technologies to boost its mileage. However, since the company is more focused on offering value for money, there are currently no Hybrid or other alternate fuel vehicles on its production line, though this can definitely be expected to change in the future.
