Volkswagen Malaysia (Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia) and Online merchant Lazada are collaborating to offer twelve special edition Volkswagen Beetles, exclusively online.
The partnership offers the citizens the opportunity to own an exclusive limited-edition Volkswagen Beetles, purchased conveniently via the online merchant’s platform, in conjunction with merchant’s Online Revolution campaign happening from 12 to 14 of December. The 12 limited edition Beetles will be sold online at RM112,112* each. This offer is only valid within the Peninsular.
The limited edition Beetle comes in two designs: the “Herbie 53” in Pure White and White Silver, and the “Hot Bug” in Tornado Red. Customers interested to own any of the Beetles will simply need to visit the merchant’s platform and purchase an exclusive Welcome Kit at RM5,000 which doubles as a pre-payment booking fee.
This Welcome Kit contains a limited edition Volkswagen keychain and a Touch & Go card with a pre-loaded value of RM100. Once the purchase is finalized, the customer will be contacted by a Volkswagen representative for customers to select their preferred dealership and complete the purchase.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM said that the partnership represents a milestone for Volkswagen in Malaysia. “We live in a digital age where goods and services can be obtained online, so why not cars. To be able to purchase an iconic limited edition car through an e-commerce platform is something that has never been done before here. This is a historical first for Volkswagen, and would not have been made possible without the support from Lazada and our dealer partners.”
