KUALA LUMPUR: UMW Toyota Motor has temporarily suspended its sales and manufacturing operations since the nationwide enforcement of the Full Movement Control Order on June 1.

UMW Toyota Motor president Ravindran Kurusamy said Toyota and Lexus stand in solidarity with the nation to fight against the pandemic by temporarily shutting down its non-essential services.

"We understand that during this time of uncertainty, we can still be of assistance and support, and this is why we continue to be here for vehicle emergencies and breakdown.

"Also, all vehicles purchased from UMW Toyota Motor or our authorised dealers with existing warranties that are valid and expiring during this period will enjoy a 30-day extension calculated from the last day of the MCO, ” he said in a statement today.

Meanwhile, UMW Toyota Motor deputy chairman Akio Takeyama said the company is grateful to the government for safeguarding Malaysians from the threat of the pandemic and introducing financial and industrial policies to ensure economic growth.

"The impact of the pandemic has been both unpredictable and unprecedented, but the introduction of several new models throughout the year, combined with the Sales and Service Tax incentives for consumers, has helped the local automotive industry to navigate the storm in a position of strength, ” he added.

The company recently announced that the sale of Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Malaysia continued to be on an upward trend, registering a combined total of 7,595 units sold in May 2021, equivalent to a 120 per cent increase year-on-year. - Bernama
