Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has launched an e-platform called the Volkswagen Marketplace as another avenue for its customers to reserve a Volkswagen car and enjoy exclusive online offers. As the first-of-its-kind platform in Malaysia, the Volkswagen Marketplace was launched with an exclusive online-only deal on 20 units of the Passat 1.8TSI Trendline Cyber. These units are offered at an online price of RM135,888 and includes a 5-year free maintenance and 1-year free insurance offer, besides the 5-year manufacturer’s warranty and 5-year roadside assistance. Buyers will also be able to enjoy a low interest rate of 0.88% per annum on the Passat 1.8TSI Trendline Cyber.
The VW Passat 1.8TSI Trendline Cyber is powered by a 1.8-litre TSI turbocharged engine paired with a 7-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG), and has an output of 180 PS and 250Nm of torque between 1,250 rpm and 5,000 rpm. There are four colours to choose from i.e. Pure White, Deep Black, Indium Grey and Reflex Silver.
To book one, you just need to select your (1) preferred model, (2) preferred dealer and (3) submit your details. A reservation fee of RM1,500 via credit card will be required; this amount will be deducted from the total price of the selected car. Subsequently, a Volkswagen sales representative will contact you to finalise the purchase and follow up with you when the car is fully registered and ready for collection.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM said this idea of creating an e-platform had been in the pipeline for
some time, and the recent success of VPCM’s partnership with Lazada further spurred the idea. “The rise of e-commerce has changed the way people shop, and selling 12 Beetles on Lazada in just 20 minutes confirmed our belief that Malaysians are ready and receptive to buying cars online. This as an important development for the brand and we are very excited to be able to bring Volkswagen Marketplace to Malaysia.”
“Volkswagen Marketplace is a permanent platform for us, and we will be regularly updating it with new offers, so interested customers should definitely keep on a lookout for them,” he added.
