Onward from the launch of Volvo’s certified used car programme – Volvo Selekt – in June 2020, the premium Swedish carmaker introduces the Volvo Used Car Locator, an all-new digital initiative that gives customers a convenient way of shopping for Volvo cars at a price point that fulfils their financial needs, all done online and from the comfort of their homes.
The Volvo Used Car Locator holds an inventory of both Volvo Selekt cars and other Volvo quality used cars. Volvo Selekt models can be found only at Sisma Auto in Glenmarie, Selangor and iRoll Auto in Juru, Penang, whereas all Volvo quality used cars are made available at other dealerships – 12 in total – across the nation. Volvo Selekt cars are guaranteed to be under five years old with less than 100,000km in mileage, and have received a 125-point inspection, software upgrade and genuine part replacements to ensure that they are road-ready and can deliver optimal performance. To give new Volvo Selekt car owners a head-start, each car comes with a minimum of 12 months warranty, a complimentary 1-year maintenance service package (VSA 1) and 12 months of Roadside Assistance.
Consequently, using the same criterion for all pre-owned vehicles, each Volvo dealership conducts a series of checks and updates to ensure that all Volvo quality used cars are maintained up to Volvo’s standards.
In response to the warm reception and increased demand for pre-owned Volvos, with Volvo Selekt cars having contributed 15% to the total Volvo used car sales in 2020 for the Malaysian market, Volvo Car Malaysia wants to offer Malaysians a more convenient and simplified process of browsing, buying and even trading in used Volvo cars.
Through this, Volvo ensures that customers receive a premium buying experience through dedicated service and assurance of quality.
Nalin Jain, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia, said: “The positive response we have received from Volvo Selekt has motivated us to give customers more choices on how they can purchase a used Volvo car while maintaining all the criteria of excellence, reliability and performance that is expected of a premium car. And so in line with our move to be technologically savvy, we now introduce the Volvo Used Car Locator, to elevate customers’ experience in acquiring and owning a Volvo car, all from the convenience of their smartphones or laptops. This initiative comes at an apt time as we continue to be mindful of our safety and health, and practise physical distancing wherever possible.”
Once the used car is made available on the Volvo Used Car Locator, patrons can visit the website to browse through the available models on a consolidated list for cars – either Volvo Selekt or Volvo quality used cars – that are available at all Volvo dealerships across Malaysia. The website also provides full details of the cars so that customers can identify the Volvo that best fit their lifestyles and its closest location.
“We hope that more Malaysians can experience first-hand our pioneering safety features and innovation that has been engineered into each of these cars, making them some of the safest options in the market,” Nalin concluded.
