Yesterday’s announcement of fuel prices for February 2017 saw an across the board increase of available fuels retailing at the pump – RON 95 is now at RM2.30 per litre (up 20 sen compared to January), RON 97 at RM2.60 per litre (up 20 sen), diesel at RM2.15 per litre (up 10 sen) and Euro 5 diesel at RM2.25 per litre (up 10 sen).
It has certainly been a steady increase in the past five months. Back in September 2016, RON 95 was priced as low as RM1.70 per litre, so the jump up by 60 sen a litre isn’t insignificant.
Fuel prices being what they are, we thought that some may be finding it timely to take a closer look at hybrids and diesel vehicles as well as the odd EV or three, as something that may be worth considering.
As such, we’ve prepared a simple-to-peruse list of such offerings available in our market to make it easy to compare what’s currently available out there, if you happen to be shopping for such a vehicle. The list is made up of base level offerings under RM100k to premium units; for the diesel list, we’ve omitted pick-ups and pick up-based SUVs.
Here are all the alternative fuel and diesel choices currently available on sale in the Malaysian market, as well as their prices:
