Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has just announced its revised price list for its Nissan models, in line with the Government’s implementation of the Sales and Services Tax (SST) that came into effect on 1 September 2018.

All Nissan models that are assembled locally saw a price decrease of up to RM5,400 for the Nissan X-Trail 2.5L 4WD. With the new tax structure, Nissan vehicles in Malaysia are now priced between RM69,800 to RM153,800.

Whereas for the Nissan Navara pick-up truck, ETCM has not announced its new pricing with SST applied and noted that the pick-up’s price will remain at 0 per cent GST (Goods and Services Tax) while stocks last. This puts the Navara’s price at RM77k to RM119k for the fully loaded VL Plus variant.

We have detailed why are cars now cheaper under SST as opposed to GST times and it all boils down to a tax structure that favours high local content for CKD vehicles.
