Volkswagen joins SOCAR in the car-sharing revolution

By ahmadzulizwan, 02 May 2018

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has formed a collaboration with SOCAR as the latter forges ahead with its car-sharing business. The deal means that 50 Volkswagen Polo will feature the SOCAR logo. So far, 21 has already been delivered with the other Volkswagen Polo units to be delivered by mid-May.

Launched in Kuala Lumpur just three months ago, SOCAR’s fast expansion provides convenience for its members. Company CEO, Leon Foong had this to say about the Polo, “The Volkswagen Polo was a natural choice for SOCAR’s fleet expansion… because it is the perfect city car, offering an assuredly safe, yet fun quality drive. It is also one of the world’s most widely produced cars.”


He adds that the current demographic of SOCAR users in the country are in their mid-30s, who want to try new car models or are households that need to use a second or third car from time to time.

“We are pleased to collaborate with SOCAR. Through this partnership, we are able to offer the members of the public easy access to Volkswagen cars and have them enjoy its German engineered capabilities. The Polo is perfect for city driving, though it may be small in stature it offers a dynamic drive without compromising on safety and comfort,” says Erik Winter, Managing Director VPCM.
