Mercedes hybrids for Metro Travel & Tours

By CARSIFU | 26 January 2015

KUALA LUMPUR: Limousine and tour service provider Metro Travel & Tours Service Sdn Bhd recently bought five Mercedes-Benz S400L Hybrid cars.

The deal was done by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, working together with authorised dealer NZ Wheels Sdn Bhd.

The new S400L Hybrid cars join Metro Travel & Tours Service’s fleet of 50 premier vehicles.

They will be used for chauffeuring and tour services to more than 20 four and five-star hotels, embassies and corporate clients within Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

Launched in March 2014, the S400L Hybrid is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that has the latest technological innovations from Mercedes-Benz. Following a RM15mil investment into its Pekan, Pahang production plant, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia locally assembles the vehicle.

The S400L Hybrid subsequently received full duty exemptions in May 2014.

“We have been buying Mercedes-Benz cars since 2007. As a company that is in the business of transportation, we pride ourselves in offering top-of-the-line vehicles with the latest technology. This ensures that we provide a world-class experience to our distinguished clientele, particularly when it comes to comfort and safety,” said Metro Travel & Tours Service managing director David Yeong.

Over eight years, Metro Travel & Tours Service has bought almost 50 passenger cars ranging from E to S-classes.

“As the safety of our passengers is paramount, all our drivers have been certified by Defensive Driving Courses,” said Metro Travel & Tours Service director Datuk Khoo Chee Choo.

“We are certainly proud to have been chosen yet again by our long-term partners, Metro Travel & Tours Service, when it came time for them to expand their fleet of exclusive limousines,” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia president and CEO Roland Folger.
