Perodua and Grab Malaysia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) which will see the partnership provide a host of value added services ranging from special price packages to competitive hire purchase rates for GrabCar drivers.

The MoU was signed yesterday at the automaker’s flagship 3S centre in Petaling Jaya, with Perodua Sales MD Datuk Dr Zahari Husin and Grab Malaysia country head Sean Goh signing on behalf of the two parties.

Zahari said that the partnership will serve to offer those interested in exploring the GrabCar path an easier avenue in. He said that the items within the MoU include special price packages through Perodua’s corporate and government sales department, and cover models such as the Bezza, Myvi and Alza.

The partnership will also offer a speedier car registration for Grab drivers and a one-stop centre for servicing and spare parts, insurance and road tax (issuance and renewal).

Goh said that in view of the increase in cost of living and retrenchments, Grab has been viewed as an intermediary step while seeking other job opportunities or as a viable source of income, and the exclusive price package will definitely assist drivers to continue to earn a living.

He added that the ride-hailing service provider is continuously identifying mutually beneficial partnerships to help reduce the cost of driving as well as that of ownership.
