Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM), which has revealed its new Nissan price list with 0% GST that will come into effect on June 1, has announced that it is pulling ahead the new implementation by offering GST rebates for Nissan passenger vehicles registered from May 16-31.

Under this promotion, ETCM says it will provide a full cash rebate on GST for Nissan passenger vehicles registered during the mentioned period, and added that with the GST rebates in effect, the price protection promise it mentioned earlier is no longer valid. The company had said during the C27 Serena S-Hybrid launch that the scheme would be introduced to protect customers against impending price movements.

Aside from the GST rebate, customers will also be able to enjoy greater savings with Duit Raya rewards via the ongoing Blissful Journey with Nissan promotion throughout the month of May. The promotion adds on further savings of up to RM13,000 on top of the removal of GST from the equation. In the case of the X-Trail and 2017 Navara models, total savings can amount to more than RM19,000.

The new 0% GST on-the-road (OTR) prices, excluding insurance, will remain in effect until GST is eventually replaced by the sales and services tax (SST). The exact return of SST has not been revealed, but according to Tun Daim Zainuddin, head of the government’s Council of Eminent Persons, SST should be back in place within a two to three month timeframe.
