The leading premium automotive manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, today announced that its locally-
assembled luxury hybrid vehicles, namely the S400L Hybrid and E300 BlueTec Hybrid, have received an extension on import duty and excise tax exemptions.
“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. 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,” said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia President and CEO, Dr Claus Weidner.

In the interest of our customers we continue to provide the best product experience and customer services at competitive prices.”
