Both the S400L Hybrid and E300 BlueTec Hybrid have made Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) the leading Premium/Luxury marque in the country. “In our commitment to the Malaysian automotive market and our customers, we have invested in a sustainable manner into our production plant and have brought in the suitable technology geared to support the nation’s aspirations of becoming an EEV hub,” Mercedes-Benz Malaysia’s President and CEO, Claus Weidner, commented. ““We are delighted to have been granted an extension on duty exemptions and can continue to offer our discerning Malaysian customers with leading hybrid and Energy-Efficient Vehicles (EEVs) at attractive prices. The locally produced hybrids are certainly a testament to the close cooperation between Mercedes-Benz Malaysia and our local automotive stakeholders, in terms of both product and technological know-how.”
MBM Vice-President Mark Raine added, “Given the success we have seen with the Mercedes-Benz Hybrids and our quest to contribute towards making Malaysia a hub for EEVs, we are always examining the possibility of expanding our range of vehicles in this country. We will not increase the prices across the board at the start of 2016 but will continue to monitor all influencing factors. In the interest of our customers we continue to provide the best product experience and customer services at competitive prices.”
Since 2003, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has invested over RM 800 million to assemble, distribute and market Mercedes-Benz passenger vehicles in Malaysia. The Three-point Star plans to continue its legacy of bringing ground breaking technology to the customers.
For the new year, MBM also stated that prices for its entire range from the A-Class to the top-of-the-line AMG GT S would remain similar to last year’s.
