“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," said UMW Toyota Motor president Ravindran K.
Ravindran added that the company wants to make it easier for customers to buy a Toyota vehicle with great money-saving deals.
The introduction of the online stores on Lazada and Shoppee follows the earlier introduction of the company's Online Showroom.
Booking fees at the online stores can be as low as RM250 and payment can be made via credit card or electronic bank fund transfers.
The booking fee starts the purchase process which will be followed up by personal attention from a Sales Advisor at the nearest authorized Toyota dealership to the customer.
Chat support is also available at the online stores (Monday – Friday, 9:30am – 5:30pm) for customers who may have queries.
There will be promotions (*for selected 2019 stocks only) at the online stores from time to time with exclusive money-saving offers.
At current, there is a special promotion available for the Fortuner SUV (limited stocks) worth RM22,760 and comes with a five-year free scheduled maintenance (terms and conditions apply).
There are also 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,” said UMW Toyota Motor deputy chairman Akio Takeyama.
