MAJU Motors Sdn Bhd marked yet another milestone after selling 1,000 Volkswagen vehicles within a year, a first for Brunei’s main and official distributor of the famous brand that made the ‘Beetle’ an international hit.
The 1000th car, a Volkswagen Vento, was officially delivered yesterday to Dk Kartini binti Pg Haji Piut. “I feel lucky
and happy to be the 1000th customer. I chose Volkswagen because it is a renowned brand and the company also offered the Vento at an affordable price but yet it comes fully equipped with sophisticated technology,” said the proud new owner.
For the past two years, Maju Motors Sdn Bhd recorded a total of 163 units sold in 2012, while a total of 347 units were sold in 2013. The final sales figures for this year will only be available after end of December.
The Volkswagen Vento was officially launched in February. Currently, over 230 units have been bought. There is also a high demand for other models such as the Volkswagen Polo, Golf, Scirocco and Tiguan.
Executive Director of Maju Motors, Chan Key Hong said, “Delivering 1,000 cars to customers within a year is a major achievement for our company. All Volkswagen models offer the highest standards of automotive technology and safety at attractive prices. I am pleased that these vehicles have been well received by Bruneians.”
With Volkswagen Group Singapore becoming the official importer of Volkswagen cars to Brunei since January 2014, Maju Motors managed to bring the brand and its products closer to customers. Hence, Maju Motors can now offer the latest models faster and provide the highest standards of after-sale support.
As recognition for the achievement and hard work of its entire workforce, Maju Motors rewarded each of its employees with a special gift, an Apple iPhone 6.
“The Volkswagen brand creates excitement among our customers. The staff at Maju Motors share similar enthusiasm about working for the company and this gift is our way of thanking everyone for bringing the brand to where it is today,” said the executive director.
Maju Motors Sdn Bhd also conducted a lucky draw session for their customers and various prizes were given away to winners.
