Volkswagen showrooms nationwide are back in business as part of Malaysia’s National Recovery Plan that allows the automotive sector to resume operations. However, VW showrooms in Melaka, Johor, Kedah, Pahang, and Kelantan are still closed pending approval to operate.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM), welcomes the government’s decision to reopen sales and manufacturing operations. “The closure of showrooms in the past months have affected our business performance, but we look forward to seeing the industry reopen and move forward, together with the support of our dealers.”
To ensure the safety of its employees and visitors, all Volkswagen showrooms will adhere to strict government guidelines and apply its #SafeHands measures. This includes MySejahtera check and temperature scans, mandatory mask usage, regular sanitising of showrooms and display cars, and other precautions. VPCM wants to emphasise that only fully vaccinated visitors are allowed in the showrooms. Any individual who wants to visit the showroom can do so 14 or 28 days (depending on the vaccine taken) after completing their full vaccination. You are encouraged to contact your preferred VW dealer to make an appointment prior to your visit.
In conjunction with the reopening of showrooms and the upcoming Merdeka celebration, Volkswagen dealers will be hosting a virtual showroom event on their social media channels from 27 to 31 August. One of the highlights of this celebration is exclusive online savings – RM4,500 for the Tiguan Allspace Highline and RM7,500 for the Passat R-Line. This offer is valid from now till the 31 August 2021.
