The new Sales and Service Tax (SST) will come into effect 1 September 2018 but Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has assured customers who book the Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid and Tucson (Turbo and Elegance variants only) by or on 31 August 2018, that the company will honour the selling price of these models at the pre-SST prices, even though the vehicle will be delivered after 1 September. This will be in effect while stocks last.
According to Mr Dennis Ho, Managing Director of Sime Darby Motors (Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan), the sales of Hyundai vehicles have increased during the tax holiday period, especially for the IONIQ Hybrid and Tucson models as customers take the opportunity to enjoy greater savings. “With our stock for the IONIQ Hybrid and Tucson fast depleting, we will need time to replenish the stock in order to fulfill customers’ demands. It is only fair that HSDM absorbs the SST for orders placed by 31 August 2018, even for vehicles delivered after the SST takes effect,” he said.
The current selling price for the IONIQ and Tucson models with zero-rated GST are as follows:
• IONIQ Hybrid HEV – RM94,788
• IONIQ Hybrid HEV Plus – RM109,988
• Tucson Elegance – RM119,188
• Tucson Turbo – RM137,488
(Prices indicated are for Peninsular Malaysia and excludes insurance)
HSDM offers a five-year or 300,000 km (whichever comes first) warranty on all its new passenger
vehicles. Additionally, the IONIQ is entitled to 60,000 km free service while the Tucson is entitled to
50,000 km free service, both with a three-year validity.
A 24-hour road assist service is also available for new and existing Hyundai vehicles.
