Toyota vehicles is now available in two of the most popular online shopping platforms in Malaysia i.e. Lazada and Shopee. The Toyota Flagship Stores in both Lazada and Shopee were initiated by UMW Toyota Motor to take advantage of the growing online shopping trend in Malaysia, and to provide consumers with convenience. The ongoing pandemic had also contributed to the growing trend of shopping online.
Since they are online, the Toyota Malaysia Flagship Stores are always open and can be visited at any time of the day, adding to the convenience. According to UMW Toyota Motor, there are also online-specific deals available to buyers.
“As online shopping is now part of daily life, UMW Toyota Motor is also establishing a presence on the popular e-commerce platforms of Lazada Malaysia and Shopee with the Toyota Flagship Stores. We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to buy Toyota vehicles in Malaysia, especially if they are looking for great money-saving deals. This follows the earlier introduction of the Toyota Online Showroom which was very well received,” said Ravindran K., President of UMW Toyota Motor.
Booking fees for purchases from the Toyota Malaysia Flagship Stores can be as low as RM250. Payment is made the same way as purchasing other goods online i.e. either by credit card or electronic fund transfers from banks.
Paying the booking fee will start the purchase process. Subsequently, a Sales Advisor from the nearest authorised Toyota dealership will follow up with you and personally assist with the process. Customers who have queries can use the chat support available in the online stores (Monday – Friday, 9:30 am – 5:30 pm).
There will be promotions in the online stores from time to time with exclusive money-saving offers. Currently, there is a special promotion available for the Toyota Fortuner SUV (limited stocks) worth RM22,760 and it comes with 5 years of free scheduled maintenance (terms and conditions apply).
There are other exclusive deals for the Toyota Innova, Toyota Harrier and Toyota Hilux (limited stocks) as well. The deals are available only for online bookings at the Toyota Flagship Stores on both Lazmall and Shopee Mall.
“Online sales of new cars have been gaining popularity in other countries and has become more appreciated with the current situation whereby consumers may be reluctant to go to showrooms due to health concerns. We therefore offer online channels through the popular e-commerce platforms as well as our own Toyota Online Showroom so they can be fully informed and then make the purchase conveniently,” added Akio Takeyama, Deputy Chairman of UMW Toyota Motor.
