Renault Malaysia Lets You Buy or Subscribe Completely Online
Renault Malaysia have been busy moving away from traditional brick-and-mortar showrooms to greater digitisation. Today they announced that it would be launching the new Renault E-Store to enable customers to buy or subscribe to Renault vehicles completely online.
They’ve already been offering three-hour test drives of their vehicles arranged via the GoCar app and offering a very competitive subscription programme. The E-Store essentially adds the ability to buy their cars online too. The E-Store also gives you access to online exclusive rewards, like a free 6 month subscription to a Renault Captur.
Here’s a quick look at how Renault vehicles can be purchased on their E-Store:
- select the Renault model and colour of their choice
- make the booking fee payment
- submit the necessary documents
- submit trade-in valuation details
- provide bank loan preferences
- view the status of their new vehicle
- indicate preference of collection be it from a Renault showroom or delivery to location of choice (at an additional fee)
TC Euro Cars (TCEC), the sole franchise holder of Renault vehicles in Malaysia, today launched its new Renault E-Store introducing a new ‘Buy a Renault’ and ‘Subscribe’ feature on the Renault Malaysia website. The move to e-commerce is a first for the automotive industry.
Adding on from never having to visit a physical showroom with the Renault three-hour test drive offering via GoCar, customers can now enjoy ultimate convenience and a hassle-free way to buy or subscribe for a Renault through a revolutionary end-to-end digital journey.
Buying or subscribing to a car in person can be a time-consuming and tedious process. A first in Malaysia, the new Renault E-Store makes it easier by taking the entire process fully digital. From arranging for test drives to taking delivery of their Renault, customers can begin their ownership journey online, from the comfort of their own homes and at a time that is convenient for them.
To celebrate the launch of the new Renault E-Store, TCEC is extending a ‘Buy One, Get One Free’ offer for the first 50 customers who purchase online. Each of these early bird online customers will receive a free six-month subscription for the versatile Captur lifestyle crossover. The subscriptions are transferable within family members. What better way to gift a loved one than with an enjoyable drive with Europe’s best-selling crossover in its segment for a duration?
“We are proud to be an e-commerce first automotive brand. With the new Renault E-Store and more new offerings to come, we believe that we are leading the charge in digitalising the customer journey and at the same time disrupting the industry,” said Nicholas Tan, Chairman of TC Euro Cars.
