GoCar Now on Shopee with Simpler Pricing Structure and More

GoCar Subs has evolved quite a bit this week. First off, they’ve introduced a new official store on Shopee Malaysia. Secondly, there are exclusive, limited time deals to take advantage of with GoCar Subs. Thirdly, they’ve introduced ‘Swap’ benefits for subscription plans that are at least 12-months long. Finally, they have a simpler ‘One Price’ structure in place.

Let’s go through each piece of news in more detail:

NEW ‘One Price’ Structure

GoCar Subs has a huge range of vehicle to choose from. Rather than giving each car its own individual price, they’ve created 5 categories, each with their own pricing for weekly, monthly, 12 month, 24 month and 36 month options. The models in each category varies, but tend to be of similar perceived value.

  • Cheap (from RM999 a month) – national brand A and B segment compacts
  • Base (from RM1,099 a month) – non national brand B segment compacts
  • Plus (from RM1,299 a month) – non national brand B and C segment mid sized vehicles
  • Expat (from RM1,799 a month) – non national brand C and D segment large vehicles
  • Luxe (from RM2,299 a month) – C and D segment premium vehicles

NEW OFFICIAL STORE on Shopee Malaysia

Many Malaysians prefer the interface, payment options and convenience of spending money on Shopee. Now you can subscribe to a car via Shopee on Go Car official Shopee Store.

New ‘Swap’ Feature on Go Car Subs

  • Subscribe to your preferred car for 12 months, 24 months or 36 months
  • Select an alternative vehicle when you are ready to swap (after a minimum of 3 months)
  • Make a one-time swapping fee of RM250 (waived for the first year of subscription)
  • Your monthly subscription fee is then automatically adjusted when you swap, which can be up or down depending on the vehicle you selected

Limited Time Deals

If you hurry along to that official Go Car Shopee store, you can get a Nissan Almera at just RM299 a week or RM599 a month.

Another limited deal from GoCar Subs is the ‘NEW2SUBS’ deal for 12 month or longer subscription plans. For the rest of 2020, you can get your first month free and 50% off their 2nd and 3rd month subscription fees. On top of that, you get a free mileage upgrade to 2,500km AND no swapping fees for the first year.

For more on these, check out the press release below. If you need some reasons to consider subscribing, check out this article.

PRESS RELEASE

GoCar, Malaysia’s leading on-demand car-sharing platform, today announced a new streamlined ‘One Price’ structure for its GoCar Subs offerings, a new official store on Shopee Malaysia and ‘Swap’ benefits for 12-month and above subscriptions plans. Customers can also take advantage of limited-time offers to save more.

The new ‘One Price’ structure aims to simplify the selection process for customers by grouping the wide range of vehicles in GoCar Subs’ fleet into just five main categories – Cheap, Base, Plus, Expat and Luxe – from national-made brands like Perodua and Proton to luxury brands like Mini, Mercedes-Benz and more. Each category offers one standard rate across all the models represented with multiple plan options for customers to choose from. Available plans include weekly, monthly, 12-month, 24-month and 36-month options. Previously, rates were separately priced for each individual model.  The table below provides a quick snapshot of the new GoCar Subs One Price structure.

“Given the wide range of models in our fleet, we wanted to make it easier for customers to search, compare and decide on the best options for them. We hope that reorganising our fleet into five categories with a more streamlined pricing structure will help make the selection process simpler and enhance the customer experience,” said Jocelyn Ong, Head of Communications for GoCar Subs.

Expanding reach to serve more customers via Shopee

GoCar is also collaborating with Shopee Malaysia and has set up an official store as part of the Shopee Mall, featuring all the offerings from GoCar Subs.

In conjunction with this collaboration, GoCar Subs is offering an exclusive deal on the Nissan Almera that is available only via Shopee – a weekly subscription at the special rate of RM299 (normal price: RM499) and a monthly plan at RM599 (normal price: RM1,699). Limited units available.

Swap for freedom to access any vehicle within the garage

GoCar Subs is also proud to announce ‘Swap’ – a new benefit that gives customers who sign-up for a 12-month subscription and above access to the whole fleet of vehicles in the GoCar Subs garage. 

How ‘Swap’ works:

  • Subscribe to your preferred car for 12 months, 24 months or 36 months
  • Select an alternative vehicle when you are ready to swap (after a minimum of 3 months)
  • Make a one-time swapping fee of RM250 (waived for the first year of subscription)
  • Your monthly subscription fee is then automatically adjusted when you swap, which can be up or down depending on the vehicle you selected

Each customer is allowed two swaps per year – so customers have access to up to three different models per year. This is designed to totally revolutionise the way people access and use their GoCar Subs vehicles in the future, delivering total flexibility and freedom for a different car depending on the customer’s needs for that period.

“We understand that customers are craving for flexibility. With Swap, we believe we are meeting the needs of consumers who are looking for a whole new mobility solution, especially given the current uncertainties in the market. Now, customers can adjust their monthly commitments by upgrading or downgrading for a vehicle that meets their needs,” added Ong.

More savings with a limited-time offer

From now until 31 December, customers can also take advantage of the NEW2SUBS offering to enjoy further savings. Through this exclusive deal, customers who sign up for a 12-month or above subscription plan get the first month free and 50 percent off the second and third-month subscription fee. Additionally, customers also get a free mileage upgrade to 2,500km monthly from 1,650km and a swapping fee waiver for the first year if they decide to swap models or vehicles. All bookings for regular rates and promotional rates are limited and on a first come, first served basis.

All fees are inclusive of comprehensive insurance, road tax, regular servicing and maintenance and independently rated car inspection. As a subscription programme, GoCar Subs customers also need not worry about hefty down payments, loan interest rates, being locked-in to long-term loan tenures and vehicle depreciation costs.

GoCar Subs is open to all Malaysian citizens and residents (valid international driving permits are accepted). To subscribe, applicants only need to submit a copy of their driving license, identity card or passport, three-month payslip, EPF statement and three-month bank statement.
