TC Euro Cars (TCEC), the sole franchise holder of Renault in Malaysia, has updated its Renault Subscription and E-Store offerings today through a virtual media session.
TCEC says that the new updated plans are designed to help ease car ownership through flexibility and affordability, especially in these uncertain times, where the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is not fully seen yet.
Pricing for the existing Captur, Koleos, and Koleos Signature in the Fixed Plan have all increased by RM200 across the board, with the previous lowest price on the two-year plan moved to the new three-year plan.
Customers now also have two additional options in the fixed plans – Captur Plus and the Captur Trophy, both of which now have their own subscription plans starting from RM1,399 and RM1,499 respectively for a three-year subscription tenure. This is in addition to the recently-announced Pre-Owned Captur Subscription Plan.
Along with the introduction of the new three-year plans, TCEC has also introduced expanded add-on options, including increased mileage cap of up to 40,000 km; wear-and-tear parts; accessories pack including security and solar tint, Digital Video Recorder (dashcams), child seats; as well as Singapore access and custom car registration number.
Aside from the Fixed Plans, TCEC has also updated the Renault Subscription Switch Plans. The Switch Base plan is now offered with the Captur Trophy at RM1,999 per month, while the Switch Prime plan now offers the Koleos at RM3,199 per month.
The Switch Plans are based on a one-year tenure period, and are both eligible to two months of Renault family access, which includes the Megane R.S (limited to two weeks of usage), Captur and the Koleos.
Just as before, the Switch Plans subscription fees are inclusive of wear and tear coverage, road tax, insurance, and regular scheduled servicing, and does not come with any mileage restrictions or cancellation penalties. The aforementioned accessories pack and Singapore access add-ons are also available for the Switch Plans.
After a successful pilot phase of the Renault Subscription Trial Plan at the Renault PJ showroom, TCEC is now expanding the Trial Plan to all Renault showrooms nationwide.
The Renault Subscription Trial Plan offers the flexibility to access the Captur for a week, priced at RM399. Alongside the nationwide roll-out, TCEC has also announced that customers are now able to sign up for the Trial Plan unlimited times, as opposed to the previous one-time only offer.
The company says that the move aims to help customers who may have had their budgets impacted by the ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO), or who are not keen on long term commitments in this time of uncertainty.
All of the new subscription plans are now available on the Renault E-Store, where the entire customise, purchase, and subscription process can be completed online. Customers can also utilise the Renault E-Store to arrange for the free concierge service, as announced in the Renault Relax campaign.
To sweeten the deal, TCEC is offering rebates equivalent to six months of instalment payments for any vehicle purchase on the E-Store from 20 April to 31 May 2020. Other online-exclusive deals for new customers include a five-year/100,000 km free service package, along with trade-in rewards worth up to RM8,000.
Customers who prefer the Renault Subscription plans are entitled to a one-month free subscription, while those who opt for the Pre-Owned Captur Subscription will continue to enjoy 50% off the first six months of their subscription fee.
As a teaser of what’s coming next in the brand’s charge into digitalisation, TCEC has announced that it will be launching a new mobile application as an all-in one portal to manage their Subscription vehicle. Key functions in the application includes vehicle locking and unlocking, location tracking, trip history, car sharing, service reminders, emergency calls, and a vehicle vital data dashboard.
The application is expected to launch in June, and the full functionalities will be shared at a closer date.
