2015 GST car prices

  • Nissan Leaf EV price revised to RM180,566 with GST

    Nissan Leaf KLIMS-9

    Here’s an update on the Nissan Leaf, currently the only electric vehicle (EV) on sale here in Malaysia. Its price has been altered quite drastically since it was first launched at KLIMS13 for RM168,800, and it’s now listed on Edaran Tan Chong Motor’s website with a RM180,566.18 price tag.

    Apparently, the asking price was quietly revised to circa RM189k in February 2015, to account for the discontinuation of the hybrid and EV incentives announced in NAP 2014. Since then, the implementation of GST has seen the figure drop to what it is now.

    Just recently, Renault Malaysia confirmed that it’s aiming to price its Zoe EV at just under RM140,000. That’s for a B-segment-sized hatchback, of course, which tallies with the C-segment Nissan Leaf’s new price.

    To recap, the all-electric Leaf has the equivalent of 109 PS and 254 Nm of torque, and can get to 100 km/h in 11.5 seconds. Top speed is “above 140 km/h,” and a maximum driving range of 195 km is quoted. A home charging unit and a three-year/100,000 km warranty are included in the asking price.

The only models not affected by the changes are the MINI JCW 3 Door, Cooper 5 Door and Cooper Countryman facelift, having been launched after the implementation date.

  • GST: Updated BMW prices – decrease of up to RM19k


    BMW Malaysia has finally released its post-GST price list for all its models and on the whole, it’s a pretty rosy picture indeed. The majority of the range will witness a reduction in price bar the BMW 520d Sport, 730Li, 740Li and Z4 sDrive20i – the 218i Active Tourer, X6 xDrive35i M Sport and i8 are not affected, having been launched after the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

    The most significant drop in price comes courtesy of the revised price tag adorning the BMW M6 Gran Coupe – a massive reduction of RM19,000 (1.9%) now sees it priced at RM980,800 on-the-road (OTR) without insurance. On the other end of the scale, one has to now fork out less than RM170k to own a BMW as the 116i’s price tag has been reduced by RM1,000 to RM169,800 OTR sans insurance.

  • GST: Chevrolet updates prices, Malibu down by RM291


    Chevrolet is next to announce its updated price list following the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on April 1. Do note that several models such as the Sonic, Sonic Sedan, Captiva and the manual variant of the Colorado have vanished from the updated list.

    A check with Chevrolet has confirmed that there are no plans to restock the above mentioned models for now – Chevrolet is keen to stress that the models may return in the future but nothing has been set in stone. The biggest change in price affects the Colorado Muscle Power 2.8L A/T, which now sees its price tag bumped up to RM110,427.88 OTR without insurance – a jump of RM1,658.28.

The marque’s Civic-fighter, the Cruze, is now priced at RM105,714.68 OTR sans insurance – which represents an increase of RM948.28.

  • GST: Land Rover’s new prices – some up, some down

    Land Rover Range Rover Sport launch 18

    Land Rover Malaysia has released new prices with GST – some are up and some are down. The price increases are between RM3,000 and RM30,000; the reductions between RM1,000 and RM12,000. Note that all prices quoted here are nett selling prices (before road tax, registration and insurance).

    The popular Evoque is between RM14,000 and RM15,000 more expensive, or 3.5-3.75% dearer. Meanwhile, the great-grand-daddy Defender 110 Double Cab‘s price drops by RM5,000 to RM153,888, representing a considerable 3.15% decrease. Our Defender is locally-assembled (CKD) at Inokom’s Kulim plant.

    Curiously, the two lower Range Rover Sport variants (3.0 supercharged V6 and 3.0 SDV6) knock RM12,000 off their pre-GST prices – the biggest decrease in monetary terms – but the top Range Rover Sport 5.0 supercharged V8 is now RM21,000 more expensive at RM1.02 million.

    Likewise, the lowest and highest Range Rover variants (4.4 SDV8 and 5.0 supercharged V8) are pricier by RM16,000 and RM30,000 respectively, while the middle-child Range Rover 3.0 supercharged V6 sees a paltry RM1,000, or 0.1%, price drop.

  • GST: All Jaguar models pricier, by RM1,000-25,000


    Jaguar Malaysia has released new prices with GST – in a striking turn, all models are pricier by between RM1,000 and RM25,000, representing jumps of between 0.09% and 4.17%.

    The XF 2.0 Ti, the most affordable Coventry cat in the local range, gets a RM10k bump to cross the RM400k fence, while the range-topping XF 3.0 Supercharged Petrol is RM25k dearer at RM623,888.

    The imposing XJ sees (comparatively) modest price increases of between RM10k and 20k to cost RM654k-889k. Curiously, the F-Type V6 S is now RM15,000 costlier when the F-Type R is just RM1,000 dearer.

    This news comes as a surprise amidst the general lowering of car prices post-GST en masse, but Jaguar Malaysia says the price increases are mostly due to the rise of the US Dollar. Many companies use the US Dollar as trading currency.

  • GST: Suzuki prices – most models reduced by RM100


    Most Suzuki models on sale locally are now slightly cheaper than before, official distributor Suzuki Malaysia Automobile has revealed. With the inclusion of GST, all models except for the Alto are priced RM100 lower.

    This includes the Swift 1.4, Swift Sport 1.6, SX4 S-Cross 1.6, Jimny 1.3 and Grand Vitara 2.0 models. You can refer to the table below for more details. Note that the previous-gen SX4 and Kizashi have both disappeared from the official price list and Suzuki’s local website.

    For the month of April, however, Suzuki Malaysia Automobile is offering rebates of up to RM8,500 for all of its vehicles (2014 and 2015 models). So, you can get one for a lot less than a mere RM100 reduction after all.

  • GST: Infiniti reveals new price list – all models cheaper

    Infiniti Q50S Hybrid 33

    Latest to reveal its post-GST price list is Infiniti. As you can see in the table below, all models see a moderate reduction in price (all on-the-road without insurance), but the percentage change is minimal, to say the least.

    The only model to have a somewhat significant price drop is the Q50S Hybrid, which is now priced at RM390,374.96, down RM8,425.04 (or 2.11%) from pre-GST days. The rest of the Q50 range gets reductions of between RM2040.06 (2.0t GT) and RM2,912.79 (2.0t GT Premium).

    Infiniti GST price list

    Launched just last month, the massive QX80 SUV with its 405 hp/560 Nm 5.6 litre V8 engine gets a price revision too – from RM799,000 to RM797,837.39. That’s a grand change of 0.15%.

    Missing from the price list are the Q70 and QX50 models. Facelift versions of the sedan and SUV have been released in other markets, so perhaps Infiniti Malaysia is waiting for them to arrive here before announcing their GST prices.
