Naza Quest Sdn Bhd today announced that it will cease distribution of new Chevrolet vehicles in Malaysia, but will continue to provide warranty and after-sales service for existing Chevrolet customers until General Motors (GM) appoints a new Chevrolet distributor.
Dato’ Samson Anand George, Group CEO, Automotive Group, Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd said, “We came to this decision as a result of a brand rationalisation plan under the Naza Group’s overall corporate strategy to create long-term sustainability and profitability. We will continue to focus on our other four- and two-wheeled brands.”
The company also said that Chevrolet will resume sales of its vehicle portfolio in Malaysia as soon as possible, and is in advanced discussions with potential new partners. A new master distributor partner will be announced in due course.
The cessation of Naza Quest’s Chevrolet new car business operations will take effect from 15 November, 2018.
“I would like to thank General Motors (GM) for their unwavering trust in the Naza Group for the past eight years and wish them all the best in their future endeavours,” Dato’ Samson added.
While sales of new Chevrolet vehicles will be temporarily put on hold, the majority of Chevrolet dealerships will remain open during this transition to meet the aftersales needs of Chevrolet customers.
Naza Quest is pleased to confirm it will continue serving Chevrolet customers at selected existing dealer points, offering customers’ continuity of vehicle service, parts, warranty and aftersales service in Malaysia.
