|Domestic Peugeot distributors Nasim today officiated its 28th showroom at the new township of Setia Alam. The Peugeot Setia Alam outlet is also the eighth new outlet launched by the company for the year and seventh outlet in the State of Selangor. By the end of the year, there would be two more Peugeot showrooms at soon-to-be-announced locations.|
The 28th Peugeot outlet is part of Nasim’s forward-thinking nationwide expansion plan to affirm the distributor and brand’s stronghold in the country. Thus far, Nasim has instilled outlets at these major cities in the country: Butterworth, Batu Pahat, Alor Setar, Kuala Terengganu, Georgetown, Nusajaya and Old Klang Road. At the end of this year, there would be a total of 30 Peugeot showrooms nationwide.
This latest Peugeot showroom at Setia Alam is owned and operated by Advant Speed Auto and serves the main vicinity and neighboring vicinities such as; Shah Alam, Bandar Puncak Alam, Batang Kali, Banting, Kapar, Jenjarom, Klang, Kuala Selangor, Pelabuhan Klang, Pulau Carey, Pulau Indah, Pulau Ketam, Pulau Lumut, Sabak Bernam, Sekinchan, Sungai Besar, Tanjung Karang, Tanjung Sepat and Teluk Panglima Garang.
Nasim’s COO Dato’ Samsom Anand George reiterated, “The Peugeot Setia Alam outlet will enable the company to tap into the growing demand for European cars in Selangor, especially in the new township. Last year, the European market expanded by 81.1% in Setia Alam, outperforming the overall market growth.”
“We see great potential in Setia Alam as there is a lack of European representation here. So far in 2013, we have seen the demand for European brands in Selangor increase, keeping in line with the national trend,” he added.
Built at a cost of over RM2 million and measuring 11,000 square feet, Peugeot Setia Alam is a fully-equipped 3S (sales, service and spare parts) center with facilities such as customer lounges, meeting rooms, Astro and complimentary Wi-Fi in addition to a service center equipped with the capacity to service up to 15 cars daily.
More recently, Nasim added the iconic Peugeot performance compact – the locally-assembled Peugeot 208 GTI – to their variants repertoire. The Peugeot 208 GTi takes over the reins of the then popular 205 GTi after a span of a quarter of a century. It thus propagates Peugeot’s burgeoning interests in the performance cars segment, as well as motorsports.
All Peugeot variants now include a five-year unlimited warranty, along with Nasim’s existing lifetime 24-hours Peugeot Assistance service, as well as complimentary access to the Peugeot Lounge at Subang Terminal’s Skypark and automatic membership to the exclusive Peugeot Privilege Club.
