Customers can enjoy a variety of amenities in these new BYD 3S centres such as comfortable lounges, complimentary WiFi service, charging bays as well as refreshments.
“As one of the key players in the automotive industry, the opening of three BYD 3S centres is a testament to our commitment towards spurring more electric vehicle (EV) adoption amongst Malaysians as we strive to provide world-class sales and after-sales services to our BYD customers,” said Sime Darby Group CEO Datuk Jeffri Salim Davidson.
“We are pleased to have established strong partnership with our dealer partners – Sisma Auto and Millenium Autobeyond – and we look forward to offering Malaysians innovative and sustainable BYD vehicles and solutions that meet their mobility needs and contribute to a greener future,” he added.
