PENANG: Local Mazda distributor Bermaz Motor has re-affirmed its commitment to absorb the SST (sales and service tax) for customers that book Mazda cars before the SST is re-implemented on Sept 1.

Bermaz Motor CEO Datuk Seri Ben Yeoh said, “Confirmed orders made before Sept 1 will be honoured, and we will absorb the impact of the SST. This is done to build customer loyalty. Of course, our costs are higher due to this, but we can cushion this by cutting down on promotional and marketing activities. Logistic costs can also be reduced as we can better plan ahead, with the high volume of vehicle orders. The yen’s favourable exchange rate has also helped us.”

Yeoh said the company has completely run down its vehicle inventory.

“Demand has far exceeded our ability to supply. Other car companies are also in the same situation as car buyers rushed to take advantage of the tax holiday. It’s historic. We foresee the supply situation to drag until the end of the year,” said Yeoh after launching the company’s latest Mazda branch and 3S Centre in Jelutong, Georgetown – Penang.

Strategically located on one of the major roads of Penang, this outlet provides easy access for customers from both sides of Penang (mainland and island).

With a built-up area of 24,138 sq ft and land area of 39,992 sq ft, the Mazda Jelutong 3S Centre is one of the largest outlets in Malaysia.

Complete with Mazda’s latest global visual identity, this new outlet is able to cater to a larger capacity in terms of sales and after-sales service to serve the growing customer base in Penang.

Mazda Jelutong’s showroom has a maximum display capacity of 14 Mazda vehicles and is a full-fledged 3S centre equipped with 7 work bays capable of servicing up to approximately 500 vehicles a month, providing standard maintenance and repair jobs.

Bermaz technicians are trained and certified to provide professional services.

The new outlet is a complete one-stop solution for sales, car trade-in, financing, and after-sales services.

From purchase to ownership, the 28 member team at Mazda Jelutong is dedicated to delivering the Mazda Peaceful Ownership experience to customers.

Penang customers can also opt for Mazda Mobile Service Unit – offering owners convenient car servicing and maintenance at their doorstep at no additional costs.
