Lexus Malaysia recently opened its seventh outlet in Malaysia. Lexus Ipoh is located along Jalan Kuala Kangsar in Perak’s capital city. It comes after outlets in Mutiara Damansara, KL, Sungai Besi, Penang, Johor and Kuching. Lexus Malacca will join the network in the final quarter of 2014.
Lexus Ipoh is operated by Telagamas Motors, a successful Toyota/Lexus dealer with Lexus Penang and two Toyota dealerships in Kulim and Tanjung Malim under its stable. The company invested over RM15 million into the setting up of this new facility.
Lexus Ipoh is a double-story building built on a 30,000 sq ft land. The showroom can display four cars and the service centre has four service bays, all handled by 16 personnel. There’s also a roof top stockyard.
“The Lexus Customer Experience is legendary and incorporates the art of Japanese hospitality. It starts when you visit the Lexus showroom for the first time, and continues at every step of the way after you purchase your first Lexus. To us, it’s more than meeting your needs and desires – it’s anticipating them. That way, you are always at the center of the experience, just like you would be, as a guest in our home,” said Datuk Ismet Suki, president of UMW Toyota Motor.
Lexus Malaysia has sold more than 6,500 cars in Malaysia and aims to shift over 1,400 units this year. With the termination of tax incentives for CBU hybrid cars, the Lexus ES is set to take over from the CT 200h as the biggest seller here. We’re expecting the new Lexus NX SUV to join the local stable next year.
