The BYD dealership network is growing with the latest launch of a 3S centre in Glenmarie, Shah Alam. Opened by multi-brand premium automotive group, SISMA Auto, this is the largest BYD 3S centre in Malaysia and is rated a Class-A BYD facility.
Costing RM5 million to set up, BYD Glenmarie features a showroom large enough for 9 display vehicles, and 16 service bays which can handle up to 1,000 vehicles monthly, to cater to the expected growth in BYD customers. BYD currently retails the ATTO 3 EV in Malaysia but is preparing to launch other models for sale.
This 3S centre is equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment, specialised tools and jigs and also climate-controlled storage areas for sensitive power battery components. There is also a dedicated New Energy Vehicle room for repairing all high voltage components.
SISMA Auto Group Managing Director, Syed Khalil bin Syed Ibrahim, said that the company, with its 30 years of experience in partnering with premium automotive brands, is well positioned to offer a premium 3S experience to BYD owners in Malaysia.
“We are honoured to partner with BYD and its Malaysian distributor, Sime Darby Motors. We believe the future of the automotive industry is electric and as the number one New Energy Vehicle (NEV) manufacturer in the world, BYD is well positioned to be a leader in this electrified future. The design and features of our 3S Centre reflect the brand’s premium positioning and the quality of its products. We are very encouraged by the Malaysian market’s response to the BYD Atto 3 and eagerly looking forward to the introduction of more BYD models in the coming months,” he said.
Meanwhile, BYD Malaysia Sdn Bhd Managing Director Eagle Zhao expressed confidence in the market potential for BYD in Malaysia saying, “The demand for new energy vehicles in Malaysia has been growing tremendously. We aim to introduce the latest technology and offer more choices to Malaysian consumers.”
“We take great pride in the robust partnership between Sime Darby Motors and SISMA Auto, as we bring together our collective industry experience and a shared vision of propelling Malaysia’s low carbon mobility future with revolutionary EV products from BYD. This 3S center represents a significant milestone in our journey, as it will undoubtedly foster trust and confidence in the BYD brand among discerning motorists in Malaysia. We are committed to delivering world-class automotive solutions and are excited about the transformative impact this partnership will have on the Malaysian market,” said Managing Director of Sime Darby Motors Retail & Distribution Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Macau, Jeffrey Gan.
