GEORGE TOWN – Prima Pearl Auto Sdn Bhd, the authorised dealer for UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT), targets to sell 700 units annually following the opening of a new showroom in Bayan Lepas.
Its General Manager, K. Thinagaran, said the company has invested about RM1 million to set up the showroom.
“We are optimistic to achieve the target with various models of Toyota vehicles and the new models to be launched soon,” he said at the opening ceremony here today.
UMWT President, Datuk Ismet Suki, officiated the ceremony.
He said the company has been in Penang for over 10 years and with this outlet, Prima Pearl Auto would be able to serve the customers better, especially after-sale service.
Thinagaran said the modern and spacious showroom, covering six shop lots, could display up to four models at one time, including two delivery bays.
“This showroom will cater to the market within southern Penang in the growing new housing areas,” he said.
The showroom is part of the extensive Toyota network of 97 sales and after-sales outlets throughout the nation.
Ismet said UMWT was lining up a few models to be launched soon, including the enhanced Vios and the all-new Innova.
“I believe with these new vehicles, we have covered more in terms of vehicle line-up that suits various customers’ needs,” he said.
He said UMWT would continue to improve product offerings with innovative and exciting products in the future to increase market share. – BERNAMA
