Toyota Now on Lazada and Shopee
UMW Toyota Motor has launched its official stores on Lazada and Shopee in an effort to establish itself on popular e-commerce platforms.
The Toyota Malaysia Flagship Stores not only provide convenience to potential customers, but also offer special deals on selected Toyota models.
For instance, the company is currently offering savings worth up to RM22,760 on top of a five-year free service package for the 2019 model year Toyota Fortuner.
In addition, exclusive deals for the Innova, Harrier and Hilux are also available through both online stores. Booking fees are as low as RM250 and can be made via credit card or electronic fund transfers from banks.
Online shopping has been growing in popularity over the past few years and with the COVID-19 pandemic, its growth has accelerated. Consumers can get almost anything online nowadays and now, the list includes Toyota vehicles.
UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has opened online stores at two of Malaysia’s popular e-commerce platforms – Lazada and Shopee – where car-buyers can find special deals on selected Toyota models. Being online, the Toyota Malaysia Flagship Stores are open 24/7 so they can be visited at any time of the day, making it convenient for shoppers.
“As online shopping is now part of daily life, UMW Toyota Motor is also establishing a presence on the popular ecommerce platforms of Lazada Malaysia and Shopee with the Toyota Flagship Stores. We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to buy Toyota vehicles in Malaysia, especially if they are looking for great money-saving deals. This follows the earlier introduction of the Toyota Online Showroom which was very well received,” said Ravindran K., President of UMW Toyota Motor.
Booking fees at the Toyota Malaysia Flagship Stores can be as low as RM250 and payment can be made the same way as purchasing other goods online, ie by credit card or electronic fund transfers from banks.
The booking fee starts the purchase process which will be followed up by personal attention from a Sales Advisor at the nearest authorized Toyota dealership to the customer. Chat support is also available at the online stores (Monday – Friday, 9:30am – 5:30pm) for customers who may have queries.
There will be promotions (*for selected 2019 stocks only) at the online stores from time to time with exclusive money-saving offers. For example, there is currently a special promotion available for the Toyota Fortuner SUV (limited stocks) worth RM22, 760and it comes with 5 years of free scheduled maintenance (terms and conditions apply).
There are other exclusive deals for the Toyota Innova, Toyota Harrier and Toyota Hilux (limited stocks) as well. The deals are available only for online bookings at the Toyota Flagship Stores on both Lazmall and Shopee Mall.
“Online sales of new cars have been gaining popularity in other countries and has become more appreciated with the current situation whereby consumers may be reluctant to go to showrooms due to health concerns. We therefore offer online channels through the popular e-commerce platforms as well as our own Toyota Online Showroom so they can be fully informed and then make the purchase conveniently,” added Akio Takeyama, Deputy Chairman of UMW Toyota Motor.
