EON is definitely trying to bring in new sources of income from it’s dealership network, with the most recent dealership deal being awarded being a Suzuki non-exclusive dealership for the Kepong area. This isn’t really a surprise, as DRB-HICOM owns most of EON and also owns Suzuki Malaysia. The agreement will last for 2 years starting from March 1st 2007, and will be automatically extended for another year annually, if everything runs fine of course.
You can expect this deal to be a lucrative one, as many will surely be attracted to the cheaper Suzuki Swift that we will be able to buy soon once local assembly of the cute compact car begins.
