NISSAN TEANA LUXURY SEDAN FROM RM138,000
Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) is confident it can sell 600 units of the just-launched all-new Nissan Teana luxury sedan, per month.
The car comes in two variants, the 2.0L and 2.5L V6, which is assembled at its Serendah plant, said Executive Director Datuk Dr Ang Bon Beng.
He said Edaran Tan Chong was optimistic both variants would be able to garner a 30 per cent market share of the mid-sized car or D segment.
“As for the 3.5L V6, it caters for a niche market and is fully imported from Japan. So, we hope to sell 30 to 40 units of this variant yearly,” Ang told reporters after Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha launched the car here Tuesday.
The Nissan Teana retails from RM138,000 onwards and the price was expected to increase between RM3,000 and RM4,000 January next year, he said, adding that ETCM planned to bring in electric vehicles to the local market late next year.
Meanwhile, ETCM Executive Deputy Chairman Datuk Tan Heng Chew said Teana received overwhelming response across numerous markets around the world since its global launch.
“For example in China, the Teana’s luxurious appeal has won over customers and is currently the best-selling vehicle in its class,” he said.
Tan also said that ETCM showrooms across Malaysia had received bookings of more than 1,000 units for the Nissan Teana.
Meanwhile, Kong said the Malaysian automotive industry was expected to see a healthy growth between 2011 and 2020 in tandem with the positive growth in Gross Domestic Product estimated at six per cent, annually.
“This strong growth of our automotive sector is expected to continue in the next ten years, although, the pace of the global recovery is expected to be gradual and even turbulent at times,” he added.
