NASIM Sdn Bhd has kicked off 2015 with their first launch of the year — the latest Peugeot outlet Taiping.
The company’s latest addition is in line with Nasim’s ongoing nationwide network expansion exercise, with two other outlets, Peugeot Ipoh and Peugeot Ipoh Garden, already located in Perak.
Its chief operating officer Datuk Samson Anand George said Taiping is currently undergoing significant infrastructure development.
“Addressing such potential was key in our decision to launch another outlet in this state within four months.
“This was further supported by the results of our extensive feasibility study, which revealed that Perak is indeed our fastest growing market,” he said at the opening of Peugeot Taiping recently.
Samson added that through their after sales network expansion and the introduction of several new models, they intended to grow their sales volume in 2015.
“Our target is to sell 6,000 cars in 2015, in line with the Malaysian Automotive Association’s forecast of a 2% increase in new vehicle sales,” he said.
Comprising a 9,000 sq ft facility, Peugeot Taiping is a 3S (sales, service and spare parts) centre equipped with customer lounges, a Peugeot boutique and wi-fi.
Its service centre has body and paintwork facilities and five service bays with the capacity to service up to 20 cars a day.
Built at a cost of RM1mil, Peugeot Taiping will serve customers in Batu Kurau, Bagan Serai, Changkat Jering, Kamunting, Kuala Kangsar, Matang, Padang Rengas, Simpang, Selama, Trong and Taiping.
Nasim is offering an extended hours service campaign at all Peugeot outlets nationwide until Feb 17.
Their operating hours will be extended till 8pm on weekdays and 5pm on Saturdays.
The extended hours service campaign is for standard servicing while all customers who send their cars in during this period will receive a free 30-point check-up and exclusive gifts.
Peugeot Taiping is the first of five outlets planned for 2015.
Last month, Nasim’s Peugeot Lounge at Subang Skypark entered the Malaysia Book of Records for being the nation’s “First Automotive Airport Lounge.”
