The official distributor of Volkswagen cars in Malaysia, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM), is reducing its locally assembled car models prices by up to RM9,484, following the announcement on the sales tax exemption, starting from June 15 until Dec 31, 2020.

In a statement today, VPCM said the Volkswagen models include the Polo, Vento, Tiguan andPassat, while the Golf family, consisting of the R-Line, GTI and R, are fully imported.

"With the sales tax exemption, customers can expect savings of up to RM3,881 on the Tiguan, RM6,133 on the Passat, and RM4,884 on the Golf R-Line," it said.

Managing director Erik Winter said the sales tax exemption is beneficial for car buyers at the end of the day.

"We are always working towards making German engineering affordable to Malaysians.

"This good news translates to more savings for car buyers and offers a much-needed boost to the automotive sector that has been dormant during the Movement Control Order," he said.

On top of the price reduction, customers can continue to enjoy ongoing promotions and services at Volkswagen, such as six-month free installment for Tiguan units registered by June 30, online rebateson the Volkswagen eShowroom, and free home delivery service for customers, it said.

VPCM added that all Volkswagen models come with three-year free maintenance, five-year manufacturer's warranty and five-year roadside assistance.
