As we await news from the car companies on how they will tackle the situation where GST (the Goods & Services Tax) will be abolished from June 1, 2018, Proton has today issued its plans which it says will be in the interests of customers.
The company has formulated an interim pricing scheme which starts today and will run till the end of May 2018. During this time, all new Proton vehicles sold and registered by May 31, 2018 will come with include service vouchers equivalent in value to the difference between the current and new price of the car after GST is no longer charged.
Additionally, Proton Customer Care is offering a 6% discount on periodic maintenance (labour and periodic maintenance parts only) to all owners who bring their car in for servicing at authorised service centres. This service initiative will be from May 19 to May 31, 2018 and customers servicing their cars from May 16 to 18 2018 will be given a 6% discount at their next scheduled service (subject to showing the receipt from their previous service).
These offers are in addition to the current ‘Kosong-kosong’ promotion where buyers of the Iriz (Executive and Premium variants), Ertiga (all variants) and Exora (all variants) who take a 9-year H-P loan (with a specific bank) need not pay interest for the first year. Those who opt for the Saga or Persona instead and finance their purchase with a 7-year loan from Proton Commerce will not have to pay for the first 3 monthly instalments of their loan (terms and conditions apply).
“Proton is supportive of the new Malaysian government’s efforts to reduce the cost of living for the rakyat. Despite zero-rated GST only coming into effect on June 1, we have decided to reward our customers immediately as a token of gratitude for their support and in the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan,” said Abdul Rashid Musa, Proton Vice-President of Sales & Marketing.
