Nasim Sdn Bhd, a member of the Naza Corporation Holdings and the official distributor of Peugeot vehicles in Malaysia together with Naza Corporation Holdings, today confirmed their involvement in the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Games (KL2017) by providing a record 298 cars for use during the event. The fleet consists of the Peugeot 408, 508 and Traveller models.
With this substantial contribution, Peugeot is designated the Official Car for KL2017 which will be held in the capital city from August 19 – 30, followed by the ASEAN Para Games from September 17 – 23. Besides the official cars, Peugeot also provided the Pledge Car, a Peugeot 208 that will be used as the vehicle to unify the nation in support of our Malaysian athletes at the KL2017.
“It is an honour for Naza to be part of this spectacle, and we hope that these 298 cars would deliver prestige, quality and a spectacular driving and passenger experience for all at the KL2017,” said SM Nasarudin Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, Group Executive Chairman/Group CEO, Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd.
“Naza’s theme of Driving Champions (#DrivingChampions) signifies our proud efforts to be part of the nation’s history and ambition to be champions of both the 29th SEA Games and the 9th Para Games. The last time Malaysia hosted the Games in Kuala Lumpur was in 2001 where we were crowned overall champions and it is our hope that our massive contingent can emulate that same feat after a long hiatus,” he added.
Datuk Samson Anand George, Group COO, Automotive Group, Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd., explained that Pledge Car and the message of support and unity that it carries will be displayed to the athletes, which will surely ignite their passion and drive to give their best for Malaysia.
“The Naza and Peugeot Pledge Car are a call to the nation to come forward and BangkitBersama to show their support by signing messages of support to our athletes as a collective nation. This car will be touring the country and will be parked at specific locations nationwide to gather the support of Malaysians,” said Datuk Samson.
Naza/ Peugeot are also offering 100 free tickets for 50 lucky winners to watch the glittering opening ceremony of the KL 2017 at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on August 19.
In order to be in contention for the tickets, all fans have to do is take a picture with the Pledge Car with a message or caption and include #PeugeotMalaysia, #DrivingChampions and #NazaCorp when they post on social media.
