Let’s be honest, plenty of us in the market for a new car tend to wait it out towards the year end in hopes of a good rebate or discount. Carmakers have latched onto the trend as well and reacted accordingly.
However, why not have a little fun and build some solid social media cred in the process? Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) gets another feather in its cap by what the company claims is a first-of-its-kind Instagram-exclusive sale in conjunction with the 12.12 extravaganza.
Come 12.12 (12 December 2019); or the coming Thursday, 12 units of the Volkswagen Polo with the Join accessories package and a further 12 units of the Beetle with a free spoiler and Volkswagen Tint will be made available on the Volkswagen Malaysia Instagram shop.
Five-figure discounts are in store with the Polo priced at RM66,590 (originally RM81,990) and the Beetle at RM140,390 (originally RM152,390).
As per the Lazada 11.11 sale it previously had, a small booking fee needs to be placed via credit card on the payment platform. It’s RM500 for the polo and RM1,000 for the Beetle. Once the payment has been processed, a VPCM representative will call you to arrange for the conclusion of the deal at a dealership convenient for you.
“Volkswagen Malaysia were pioneers in this when we partnered with Lazada to sell the special edition Beetle and Polo during their 12.12 sale the past two years. Both editions sold out almost immediately, and this year, we continue our trailblazing streak as the very first automotive brand in the country to sell products on Instagram. We look forward to making history,” said Erik Winter, managing director of VPCM.
The clock’s already ticking on the website for the sale. Bookings will be accepted beginning 12.01am on 12 December and close on 11.59pm the same day. Click here for the link.
