As more Malaysians turn to the e-hailing industry as a source of supplementary income, Proton has unveiled an offer to incentivise car buyers in a move to promote the use of their vehicles within the e-hailing industry.
Buyers who purchase a new Proton Persona, Iriz, Exora, Saga or Proton X70 from authorized Proton sales outlets, will now be rewarded with a Petronas fuel gift card worth RM500 or, if they prefer, a price rebate of the same value.
In order to qualify, a customer would need to submit a copy of a valid PSV E- Hailing license as proof and register the vehicle under their own name. In addition to the gift card, additional rebates are being offered on selected models, ranging from RM300 to RM1,500.
The promotion will run until 31 December 2020 and is also open to individuals purchasing a car to be used for E-Hailing by a different driver.
In this instance, a Letter of Consent stating the purpose of the purchase would be required along with the full name and IC number of the E- Hailing Driver(s) and a copy of their PSV E-Hailing license.
“We want to make it easier for the latter group to purchase a Proton to be used for E-hailing. Therefore, if the buyer is the wife and the driver is her husband, we just need valid documentation for verification to approve the purchase,” said Fazli Hisham Shukor, Head of Corporate Sales, Proton Edar.
The programme is also designed to ease the decision making process for those new to the industry as well as current drivers who are looking to replace their current cars. For more information, interested parties can either contact the nearest Proton Edar outlet.
