Tapping into the vast prospects of the fast-growing electric vehicle (EV) market, Sime Darby Motors, the sole distributor of BYD vehicles in Malaysia, has further strengthened its EV foothold by expanding its dealership network. With the recent appointment of 14 dealer partners, Sime Darby Motors, along with Sime Darby Beyond Auto, now boasts a total of 21 BYD dealership outlets across Malaysia. This significant expansion comes before the launch of their second and third EVs in Malaysia, the BYD Seal and Dolphin.

Commemorative Dealer Signing Ceremony at BYD Headquarters

The appointment of the dealer partners was celebrated during a group dealer signing ceremony held at the BYD Headquarters in Shenzhen, China. During the ceremony, Jeffrey Gan, Managing Director of Sime Darby Motors Retail & Distribution Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, and Macau, signed the agreement with each of the dealer owners.
