BMW Group Malaysia on Monday introduced its new BMW Group corporate programme where organisations as well as small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Malaysia are able to purchase and own BMW and MINI vehicles at attractive prices with exceptional benefits.

Introducing the new programme, managing director and chief executive officer Alan Harris said, “Malaysia has been home to BMW Group Malaysia for more than 10 years now, and our recently announced all-time-high record performance year is a strong testament to the continued support we have received from new and loyal BMW and MINI customers here.

“With the new corporate programme, we want to continue providing our customers here with the very best opportunities to enjoy the complete premium ownership experience of a BMW or MINI vehicle from us.”

The new programme includes a special offering for SMEs, company fleet purchases and renewals as well as multinational companies with worldwide corporate agreements with the BMW Group, and are available on selected models at all BMW and MINI authorised dealers in the country. 

Meanwhile, public listed companies as well as subsidiaries of public listed companies on Bursa Malaysia, large firms, multinational corporations, government-linked companies, Syarikat Menteri Kewangan Diperbadankan and state-owned enterprises can enjoy a 4% rebate for every fleet purchase of four to seven units while companies that purchase eight units and more are entitled to a 6% rebate. 

The new programme for Malaysian companies also includes new fleet renewal benefits. Aside from the benefits for SMEs and listed companies, a 5% rebate is also offered on selected vehicles purchased under the international supply agreement with the BMW Group. International supply agreements are worldwide corporate partnership agreements the BMW Group have with multinational organisations that operate across multiple locations.

The benefits of the new programme also apply to spouses of employees in the partner companies. With approval from BMW Group Malaysia, the concessions may also be extended to subsidiaries of the parent companies. As part of the BMW corporate programme, customers are also entitled to corporate privileges when a new vehicle is purchased. The programme is, however, not applicable for the BMW X1 xDrive 20d, the new MINI Cooper 3-Door (Salt), and any other model sold under promotional offers or duty free as well as vehicles purchased as part of the Malaysia My Second Home scheme or the Returning Expert Programme. More details can be obtained from BMW Voice at 1800-88-3000 and MINI Voice at 1800-88-6464 as well as at www.bmw.com.my and www.mini.my.
