Price of new Volvo cars reduces by as much as RM20,000
The Malaysian car industry has called out to the government to assist in many ways, especially towards lowering the car price after our long lockdown. The best way to do this is to move taxes downwards and our Prime Minister reached out the tax department decision makers and so they reduced sales tax to stimulate our car market with lower selling prices.
Following Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yasin’s announcement last week with regard to the Short-Term Economic Recovery plan, Volvo Car Malaysia today released its new price list for all Volvo CKD (Completely Knocked Down) models to exclude sales tax, effective 15 June to 31 December 2020.
Nalin Jain, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia, said: “We fully welcome the introduction of the sales tax holiday and are grateful for the opportunity to pass on the full benefits to our customers. The incentive comes at an opportune time especially as the nation and the auto sector look towards recovery, onward from challenges brought on by the pause in business operations. We are hopeful that the reduced-price tags will encourage car buyers to invest in a car built with safety in mind and in the short-term period, recharge the automotive industry in Malaysia.”
The full range of Volvo CKD line-up in Malaysia will receive a discount and the revised retail price listed for all models are on-the-road, without insurance, inclusive of excise duty and exclusive of sales tax.
New retail price for XC40, XC60, and XC90 CKD models
Available only in its T5 R-Design, the XC40 now costs RM241,450. The line-up for the XC60 starts at RM279,410 for the T5 Momentum; RM316,390 for the T8 Inscription; and RM326,120 for the T8 Inscription Plus.

“We have always appreciated the initiative of the government responding to the needs of the people and the nation. The attention and support for the automotive sector in Malaysia has always been progressive and we believe that this decision will not only boost the economy but also provide relief and hope for Malaysians as we transition out of a challenging period to better times ahead together,” said Nalin.
