Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) announced earlier this year that it would launch the Volkswagen Marketplace, and it looks like it will take place very soon – a countdown timer has already appeared on the company’s official website.

During the media roundtable session in January, the company revealed the Volkswagen Marketplace is an online sales platform where special/limited edition cars based on current models would be offered. This initiative is similar to models sold via online order only by MINI Malaysia, like the Clubman Sterling Edition.

This idea of selling cars through an online market space isn’t new to VPCM. In December last year, the company paired with Lazada to sell twelve limited edition Beetles in conjunction with the Lazada Online Revolution sale – all the cars were sold out in just 20 minutes.

Aside from the timer, the website doesn’t reveal much more like the models that will be available on the Marketplace, so we’ll have to wait a little while longer until all is revealed.
