Following the launch of the Volkswagen ‘JOIN’ editions of the Polo, Vento, Tiguan and Passat, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has collaborated with Lazada again for the new Polo Black & White.

Limited to only 11 units, the special edition model will be available exclusively on Lazada in conjunction with the company’s annual 11.11 Shopping Festival on November 11, 2018. The Polo Black & White is priced at RM68,488 on-the-road without insurance, and the price also includes added accessories worth RM7,500.

Furthermore, official bank partner Hong Leong Bank will be offering a special interest rate of 1.11% per annum for a five-year loan as part of the deal. To make a booking, you’ll need to fork out an initial fee of RM799, which can be made via Lazada Wallet, credit card or online banking, after which a Volkswagen representative will contact you for further arrangements.

What you’ll be getting with the Polo Black & White is a vehicle based on the existing Polo 1.6 Comfortline Vienna (priced at RM74,990), so a 1.6 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol (105 PS/153 Nm) drives the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic.

As the name clearly suggests, the special edition Polo follows a specific theme, with Candy White being the primary and only body colour available. This is accompanied by black touches, including on the rear spoiler, side mouldings, 15-inch ‘Riverside’ alloy wheels and side mirror caps. You’ll also get VW tinting for the money, while the black leather seats and R340G head unit with App-Connect are already standard on the car it is based on.

“A consumer’s purchasing journey have evolved so much in the past recent years, and we are pleased to have played a part in changing perceptions to the point where purchasing a car is now the new norm. This is evident with the success with our collaborations with Lazada for the 12.12. Beetle and the recent JOIN range. Convenience aside, this also tells us that consumers are online – reading, researching and looking for the best deals. And that is where Volkswagen will be,” said Erik Winter, managing director of VPCM.

“As Malaysia’s leading e-commerce platform, Lazada has evolved beyond being just an online shopping platform and has transformed into a lifestyle destination. Our continued partnership with Volkswagen is proof of changing consumer behaviour, and we look forward to offering our customers the biggest and best Lazada shopping experience through this exclusive collaboration,” added Christophe Lejeune, CEO of Lazada Malaysia.
