Volkswagen Unveils ‘JOIN’ Range with 25 Units Exclusively Available on Lazada
Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) launched the 'JOIN' range, a special edition model line-up targeted to customers wishing to stand out from the crowd.
The 'JOIN' range is an accessory package available on Volkswagen's core models, the Polo, Vento Comfortline and Highline, Tiguan Highline and Passat Comfortline. 'JOIN' accessories include side scuff plates, rear spoiler, trunk garnish, VW Tint, and a list of other exclusive add-ons worth up to RM12,000, depending on the model.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM said that the 'JOIN' range further reaffirms Volkswagen's commitment to provide a wide variety of products to the Malaysian public. "Whilst our core models are popular on their own, we believe customers are also looking out for an extra touch of exclusivity on their cars. The introduction of the 'JOIN' range, and other special edition models is something we are actively doing in our bid to offer to our customers these options with value-added benefits."
In conjunction with the unveiling of the 'JOIN' range, Volkswagen and Lazada Malaysia are once again collaborating to offer a special deal for the Malaysian public. 25 units of JOIN models will be exclusively available on Lazada beginning 12th October 2018 until the 30th of October. Customers need only pay the retail price of the car to receive the 'JOIN' accessory package for free.
To make a booking, customers are required to pay a booking fee of RM799 (for the Polo JOIN and Vento JOIN), or RM1,699 for the Passat Comfortline JOIN and Tiguan JOIN via Lazada Wallet, credit card or online banking, after which they will receive a call from a Volkswagen representative for arrangements on the preferred dealership and to complete the registration and delivery of the vehicle.

"We were delighted to have pushed boundaries and make history with our collaboration, when 12 units of the special edition Beetle was sold out in 20 minutes on Lazada last December. This proves that customers, while more discerning than ever, are receptive towards buying big-tickets items online.," said Erik Winter.
CEO of Lazada Malaysia, Christophe Lejeune added, "Lifestyles are changing due to digital commerce, with more people becoming comfortable to shop for what they need online. The sell-out performance of Volkswagens special edition Beetle last year during 12.12 is a testament to that. 1 out of 4 of the 20 million Malaysians online visited Lazada at least once in September, and we are confident that this number is set to grow even further. We are excited to be working once again with VPCM in pushing the boundaries of online shopping, with even bigger things in store for the future."
The launch of the 'JOIN' special edition range was held in conjunction with Volkswagen Fest 2018, which takes place from the 12th till 14th October at the Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam. A celebration of all things Volkswagen, visitors can enjoy exclusive offers on new and pre-owned Volkswagen models, as well as a variety of activities for the family such as food trucks, busker performances, an outdoor movie screening (12th October), and an open-air concert (13th October).
