Honda Malaysia has announced that it is collaborating with SOCAR Mobility Malaysia Sdn Bhd to provide 50 units of Honda City to frontliners* who are also Honda customers. This initiative by Honda is for Honda customers who are also frontliners who are unable to use their vehicle during this difficult time. Available for one month duration of usage, this collaboration with the SOCAR car-sharing platform provides mobility aid for the frontliners in order to help ease their travel challenges.
Honda Malaysia is greatly appreciative of the brave spirit as well as the self-sacrifice of the frontliners and wants to extend moral support to them by easing their mobility situation and journey from home to their workplace. The company hopes this initiative with SOCAR can reduce the transportation hassle of frontliners, and thus, contribute to them performing their jobs with more peace-of-mind.
“Everyone is playing their part in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak, and frontliners hold an even more important role in these difficult times. The past few weeks have not been easy for all in Malaysia, especially the frontliners who are working tirelessly to protect Malaysia from the pandemic. Despite having to withstand extra strain that is being put on them by the current situation, their selfless dedication and sacrifice have gained utmost respect from people in Malaysia and earned worldwide recognition. On behalf of Honda Malaysia, I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the frontliners; the battle against COVID-19 would have been tougher without their unwavering perseverance. Inspired by the like-minded challenging spirit, Honda Malaysia would like to assist in any way we can in this unprecedented situation. The initiative with SOCAR is introduced to help the frontliners whose Honda cars are out of service at the moment by providing the City as their temporary on-the-road companion. With Malaysians taking responsibility for their own safety by staying at home amidst the Movement Control Order (MCO) to flatten the curve, we are pleased to see that the number of cases are reducing. We believe we are stronger together, and by supporting each other, we can overcome all obstacles,” commented Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Toichi Ishiyama.
Honda Malaysia is committed to assist affected Honda customers (who are frontliners) with the programme as the company will bear the rental charges*.
