Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia Online Showroom Launched
At this rate, physical showrooms could be a thing of the past sooner than later
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has become the latest company to branch out into providing an online showroom for their prospective customers.
The main feature of the online showroom is a virtual 360-degree view of the exterior and interior of a car, as well as a gallery containing more images of the vehicle from different angles. There is also a clickable interactive button that provides access to further information and key features about the car. Those who wish to make a booking can do so by submitting a booking request form on the online showroom’s website.
In addition to viewing and booking vehicles, customers can also arrange a test drive session from the comfort of their homes via MMM’s Test Drive 2U service that was first introduced back in May 2020. This feature allows customers to have the test drive vehicle delivered to their preferred location.
Customers who are trading-in their vehicles via the online showroom will also enjoy a special promotion courtesy of MyTukar. After submitting a form, customers will be given the option to request for the car inspection, handover, transfer of ownership and the collection of the sold car to be done at the customer’s convenience.
To complement its digital platform, MMM has also launched the Mitsubishi Connect app that allows its customers to schedule a service appointment, keep track of their vehicle maintenance history and get reminders for their next service from their smartphones.
