Car-sharing business, SOCAR, will include a fleet of 50 Volkswagen Polo 1.6 to its car-sharing network in the Klang Valley.
SOCAR was launched recently in Kuala Lumpur and offers Malaysians a new alternative to mobility. Key to SOCAR’s success is fast expansion, which provides increased availability and convenience to their members. Another important element is to complement varying lifestyles and bring joy to the drivers on the platform.
“The beauty of the car-sharing model is that as a member, you have several types of cars at your fingertips serving your different needs from a leisurely cruise out of the city to a trunk heavy trip to Ikea,” says Chief Executive Officer of SOCAR Malaysia, Leon Foong.
The first batch of 21 Volkswagen Polo cars have been delivered with the remaining 29 units due by mid-May 2018. The Polo 1.6 hatchback is powered by a 1.6L petrol injection 16-Valve Multi Point Injection (MPI) engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic, giving out 105 PS and maximum torque of 153 Nm. Average fuel consumption is rated at 6.3 litres per 100 km.
