BMW Group Malaysia has appointed Regas Premium Sabah to represent the BMW, MINI and BMW Motorrad brands in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The company will be taking over the existing FM Autohaus dealership located along Jalan Penampang in the state capital. As a 4S outlet, it will offer sales, services, spare parts and systems.
Announcing the appointment, Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director & CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said: “East Malaysia has long been a contributing market to our growth here and we are excited to have Regas Premium Sabah on board as our new dealer in Kota Kinabalu to continue growing our presence in the State of Sabah.”
Mr. Hoelzl added that Sabah currently contributes over 500 vehicles to the premium segment in the country annually and has the potential to double over the next 5 years. “Last year, we experienced an 18% growth in our deliveries in Sabah in comparison to 2016 which really demonstrates the potential in the state,” he said.
Regas Premium Sabah is a joint venture between TM Vision Auto Services Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Tan Brothers Machinery Company (TBMC) group of companies and Regas Premium Auto Sdn Bhd.
Regas Premium Auto was also appointed as the authorised service dealership for BMW i in 2016 in the state and last year established the first-ever BMW i public charging facilities in East Malaysa at CityOne Megamall Kuching.
