Honda, SOCAR Join Forces to Lend Cars to Frontliners
In a collaboration with SOCAR Mobility Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., Honda Malaysia is providing 50 units of Honda City to frontliners in order to help ease their travel challenges.
This programme is initiated for Honda customers working as frontliners who are unable to use their vehicles during this difficult time. It is available for one-month duration of usage, with Honda Malaysia bearing all rental charges. The cars will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.
Honda Malaysia appreciates the brave spirit as well as self-sacrifice of the frontliners and wants to extend moral support to them by easing their mobility situation and journey from home to their workplace.
The company hopes this initiative with SOCAR can reduce the transportation hassle of frontliners, and thus help them perform their jobs with more peace-of-mind.
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Toichi Ishiyama said, “Everyone is playing their part in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak, and frontliners hold an even more important role in these difficult times. The past few weeks have not been easy for all in Malaysia, especially the frontliners who are working tirelessly to protect Malaysia from the pandemic.
“Despite having to withstand extra strain that is being put on them by the current situation, their selfless dedication and sacrifice have gained utmost respect from people in Malaysia and earned worldwide recognition. On behalf of Honda Malaysia, I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the frontliners; the battle against COVID-19 would have been tougher without their unwavering perseverance,” he added.
Affected Honda customers (frontliners) can log onto Honda Malaysia official website www.honda.com.my/customer_service/enquiry for more information on this programme.
