TC Euro sees better sales of Grand Scenic

BY ZARINAH DAUD in Butterworth

TC Euro Cars Sdn Bhd, the distributor of Renault cars and a subsidiary of Tan Chong Motor Holdings Bhd, is confident of better sales of the seven-seater 2.0 Grand Scenic range amid increased demand for multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs) among Malaysians.  

General manager (sales operations) Teh Kim Hwa said TC Euro anticipated average monthly sales of 40 Grand Scenic units.  

“We have sold 50 Scenic II and Grand Scenic cars since their launch at the end of last month and this shows that consumers are confident of the Renault technology. 

“More Malaysians are buying MPVs as their income levels have improved over the years. Our main target is the middle-income parents who are concerned about their children's safety.

“Renault is known for its first-rate safety and the latest Grand Scenic range is equipped with six airbags including two adaptive front airbags,” he said at the post-launch promotional campaign at Renault's showroom in Butterworth on Sunday. 

Teh said TC Euro was selling the last batch of 1.6 Scenic II compact MPV, following the recent government decision to reclassify five-seater MPVs as passenger cars from next year. 

“MPVs enjoy lower duty and we hope to dispose of the remaining units within a month. It would be value buy for purchasers of the Scenic II range,” he said. 

TC Euro took over the distributorship of Renault cars early this year and Teh expressed confidence that consumer support for this French car would increase because Tan Chong Motor had a wide service network.
