Incentivising EEVs is an important part of the National Automotive Policy (NAP) which aims to encourage
the establishment of Malaysia as a regional automotive hub for EEVs.
Volvo believes that the utilisation of a highly efficient internal combustion engine, producing more power
output per cylinder whilst emitting lower emissions and consuming lesser fuel, will be the industry’s
benchmark for achieving increasingly tougher global emissions target.
“Our award-winning Drive-E powertrains offer customers a world-class blend of outstanding power and
lower fuel consumption which promises to bring efficient driving pleasure to a whole new level,” said
Lennart Stegland, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia.
Volvo is committed to advance significant steps towards a zero emissions future which started with the
development of a modular engine (Drive-E) and scalable platform architecture (SPA), both of which is
ready for future electrification.
Stegland adds, “We fully support the government’s initiative under the NAP to encourage the use of
EEVs in Malaysia as it will spur investments and development of green technologies from global
automotive players into Malaysia.”
Volvo Car Malaysia would also like to acknowledge the strong cooperation between the relevant
government agencies such as the Malaysian Automotive Institute (MAI), Ministry of International Trade
and Industry (MITI), Ministry of Finance (MOF), Malaysian Investment Development Authority and the
Road Transport Department (JPJ) to ensure that all the requisites for the certification and incentives are
The revised retail pricing will come into effect on 12 August 2016.
