Sisma Auto may be more widely associated with Jaguar Land Rover, but it will soon start selling Volvos too – the company was appointed by Volvo Car Malaysia as an authorised dealer today.

The announcement is part of VCM’s dealer network expansion in major cities in Peninsular Malaysia, as part of its efforts to improve customer service and provide owners with a broader range of options. Sisma Auto’s first Volvo showroom, a redevelopment of its existing facility at Menara Worldwide on Jalan Bukit Bintang, will officially be opened in October.

It is claimed that the new dealership will enhance Volvo’s brand visibility and awareness in central Kuala Lumpur, and that owners who live or work in the vicinity will be able to enjoy a “premium ownership experience.” Sisma Auto’s Concierge Service will also be able to pick up and drop off vehicles from their home or office, with an off-site Volvo service centre providing a complete range of aftersales services.

In conjunction with the showroom’s opening, customers who purchase any new Volvo from Sisma Auto will stand a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Sweden.

“Sisma Auto has an excellent track-record of managing luxury brands and with their inclusion into the Volvo Cars family, we will be able to meet the growing demand for our brand,” said Volvo Car Malaysia managing director Lennart Stegland.

Sisma Auto managing director Syed Khalil Syed Ibrahim said that the company was pleased to welcome Volvo into the fold, adding, “We are looking forward to working with Volvo, which has an exciting range of new models at very competitive prices that meet the needs of the Malaysian market.”

Syed Khalil said that Sisma Auto is still committed to building the Jaguar and Land Rover brands in Malaysia in the long term, with the company’s Glenmarie and Penang branches continuing to sell JLR vehicles.
