KUALA LUMPUR (May 31): Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua) has teamed up with ride-hailing firm Grab Malaysia to provide value added services ranging from special price packages to competitive hire purchase rates for GrabCar drivers.
In a joint statement today, Perodua and Grab Malaysia said they have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the purpose.
“This MoU is a totally new frontier, a blue ocean, for Perodua, as it will highlight our products to the masses on a big scale through Grab,” said Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd managing director Datuk Dr Zahari Husin.
“The items within the MoU include a special price package through Perodua’s Corporate and Government Sales Department, allow for minimal time for car registration for Grab drivers and a one-stop centre for servicing and spare parts, insurance and road tax (issuance and renewal),” he added.
The special price packages include the Bezza, Myvi and Alza.
“As the region’s leading ride hailing and multi-service platform, we are constantly focused on how we can empower the 620 million people across the Southeast Asia to have better access to safe, efficient and affordable transport," said Grab Malaysia country head Sean Goh.
“At the same time, we are acutely aware of the role our driver-partners play to help us achieve this goal, hence we are continuously identifying mutually beneficial partnerships to help reduce the cost of driving; and the cost of car ownership is a major concern,” he added.
Goh went on to say that in view of the increase in cost of living and also the high number of local workers who have lost their jobs in 2016, Grab has been viewed by many as an intermediary step while seeking other job opportunities, or as a viable source of income, and the exclusive price package will definitely assist drivers to continue to earn a living.
Grab has the largest land transport network in Malaysia, having presence in 20 major cities and towns across the country.
