EON Launches Brand-New Website For Proton Models
The company says over 80% of Malaysian car buyers do their research on-line before making a purchase
Edaran Otomobil Nasional (EON), Proton’s largest dealer with nine dealerships across the country, has recently launched a dedicated Proton website in its effort to reach a wider, more tech-savvy customer base.
The website comes with several useful features to help customers browse for their favourite Proton models.
Through the integrated platform, customers will be able to do many things without having to get up from their couch, including checking for latest promotions, booking a test drive, reserving their next service appointment and calculating vehicle loans.
Akkbar Danial, Head of Automotive Distribution of DRB-HICOM and Chief Executive Officer of EON said that a strong on-line presence as a website not only provides massive opportunity for business growth, but is also at the heart of the car buying process today.
“A new website was overdue. With over 80% of Malaysian car buyers doing their research on-line before making a purchase, it is only logical to have a website, and a good one that works well on personal computers, smartphones and tablets,” he added.
In conjunction with the launch, customers who place a booking and register their new Proton cars with EON outlets from 1 August 2021 to 31 October 2021 will be entitled to a Shell Voucher redeemable at all Shell stations & Shell SELECT stores nationwide.
