Honda Malaysia Handovers City Hybrid To First CustomerAuto News
The very first Honda City Hybrid owner, Mr. Wilson Wong, has received his car at a handover ceremony at a Honda dealer in Petaling Jaya.
As with the Honda Jazz Hybrid, Malaysia is the only country outside of Japan to introduce the new Intelligent Dual-Clutch Drive Hybrid system (i-DCD). The official handover for the Honda City Hybrid came less than a month after its local debut. Back in Japan, Honda sold almost 865,000 units of its hybrid vehicles with the i-DCD system.
Honda Malaysia Group Vice President Mr. Akkbar Danial said, “The New City and New City Sport Hybrid have been well received by Malaysians alongside other Honda models. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our customers who have supported and placed their confidence in the Honda brand.”
Since its introduction back in March, Honda Malaysia has sold more than 11,000 units of the new City. On top of that, the company has sold more than 260,000 units of the Honda City since it was introduced back in 2001.
Mr Wilson Wong also received tickets to the 2017 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix in October and Modulo accessories package worth a total of RM5,070.
Elsewhere, Honda Malaysia is organizing a T3ST DRIV3 R3WARDS campaign, from 18 August till 31 August 2017. Any customers that test drive the new Honda CR-V, Honda Jazz Hybrid and Honda City Hybrid will be in the running to win cash vouchers worth RM300.
