CKD models to hit the market in 2012

Print Email

PETALING JAYA (Nov 24, 2011): Volkswagen Group Malaysia said its completely knocked down (CKD) models will be available to the public next year.

This follows DRB-HICOM Bhd group managing director Datuk Seri Mohd Khamil Jamil's recent announcement that the first batch of the Volkswagen Passat 1.8 CKD models has started its production roll-out at DRB-HICOM Automotive Complex in Pekan yesterday.

To date, DRB-HICOM has assembled about 70 units of the Passat 1.8 CKD model, which will be used internally by Volkswagen Malaysia in preparation of its launch.

In a statement today, Volkswagen Malaysia said it is currently assessing the market introduction and pricing strategy of the vehicle, and will make an announcement at an appropriate time.

Germany's Volkswagen AG and DRB-HICOM Bhd signed an agreement for local vehicle assembly of the Volkswagen CKD products in December last year.

“DRB-HICOM is the assembler of Volkswagen CKD products in Malaysia. Volkswagen Malaysia is responsible for the market introductions of all Volkswagen products, both CKD and CBU, into the Malaysian market,” said Volkswagen Malaysia managing director Ricky Tay.

"Volkswagen has 62 manufacturing plants all over the world and each Volkswagen vehicle produced has to meet the high standards that have been set before introducing it into the market,” he added.
