Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) recently played host to new Hyundai electric vehicle (EV) owners on an appreciation weekend getaway at Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort.

The first-of-its-kind getaway was organised in appreciation of the trust that new EV owners have shown HSDM but also a meeting of minds to exchange knowledge, and tips on making the most of the EV driving experience.

The event began with breakfast and a safety briefing before flagging off from Hyundai’s showroom located at Sime Darby Motors City. A total of 25 electric vehicles, comprising the IONIQ 5 and Kona Electric, then drove on a convoy to Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort through the scenic routes of Bagan Lalang.

Mr. Low Yuan Lung, Managing Director of HSDM said apart from thanking customers for their support, it is also a great avenue for the brand to get to know their customers and to gather feedback on their new EVs.

“We have delivered close to 200 units of EVs since the Kona Electric launch late last year and the IONIQ 5 launch in March this year. We really appreciate our customers’ patience and understanding as we contended with the many trials and tribulations brought on by the global chip shortages.”

“This appreciation getaway was hosted to thank our customers for their support and to allow owners of our EVs to network, get to know one another as well as to share their EV ownership experience,” he said.

Most EV owners who came with their family members on this getaway said they enjoyed the drive and the time spent exchanging knowledge and tips with fellow EV owners.

Asari Ramli, who owns the IONIQ 5 Plus said he enjoyed this event where owners get to share their thoughts on the driving capabilities of the Hyundai EV.

“This event is very well organised. It is the first interactive event that I have attended and a good platform for owners to share knowledge and tips, especially on the great safety features of the vehicle,” he said.

This event was organised as part of the company’s commitment in delivering products and services that are ‘geared for distinction’ in ensuring that customers enjoy a rejuvenated experience and a new definition of luxury.
