The first Foton 3S Centre opened by Mpire Group was officially launched by the Malaysia Special Envoy to China, Tan Kok Wai.
Mpire Asia Sdn Bhd (a wholly owned subsidiary of the Mpire Group), the official distributor of Foton, stepped up its footing and commitment in Malaysia with the launch of its first Foton 3S Centre. The much-awaited completion and announcement of its state-of-the-art facility, conveniently based in Glenmarie, Shah Alam, was officially launched by the Malaysia Special Envoy to China, Tan Kok Wai. Mpire Asia also inaugurated the all-new View C2 4.8-metre panel van and CS2 6-metre window van (18 seaters) during this auspicious occasion.
By establishing its first Foton 3S Centre at Jalan Pemberita U1/49, Temasya Industrial Park, Shah Alam, Selangor, Mpire Asia says it is committed to offer an efficient and reliable one-stop service centre for customers as the centre showcases leading-edge modern facilities with advanced equipment and tools that are comparable or better than the other brands in this segment. Furthermore, a 24/7 Foton complimentary Roadside Assist would complement the centre’s comprehensive services within the Klang Valley.
Managing Director of the Mpire Group, Dato’ Billy Goh, said: "It is evident that as a market leader in mainland China, one of the world's most sought after and competitive markets, Foton is poised to produce world-class vehicles relevant to the highly demanding Chinese consumers. Therefore, I am confident that the Foton vehicles exported to Malaysia are guaranteed to meet the high standards in features, quality and fuel efficiency, making them highly sought after by Malaysian buyers." Complementing the launch of Foton’s new 3S Centre in Glenmarie, Mpire Asia also introduced the all-new View C2 panel van and CS2 window van.
According to the MAA, the total projected number of commercial vehicles in Malaysia still stands strong at 10 per cent of total industry volume as the business of SMEs (small and medium enterprises) involved in eCommerce, IOT, Travel & Tourism and other service sectors expands. The introduction of the Foton View C2 and CS2 vehicles here is seen as timely as these vehicles are competitively priced and positioned in its respective market segment to promote efficiency, productivity, ROI, technology convergence and mega trends for the SMEs.
The ‘revolutionary’ View C2 model is coupled with an Isuzu turbo-diesel engine 4JB1 that provides an economical and reliable drive; while the View CS2 is described as the renowned 4th generation of Foton’s award-winning van in the Chinese market. It not only boasts an attractive design, but is also combined with great performance and comfort. The View CS2 is featured with the world-leading Cummins ISF diesel engine delivering high horsepower and torque (147hp and 330Nm).
Both engines are said to be equipped with sophisticated technology promoting environmental-friendly performance that complies with Euro IV Standards. In safety, both vehicles are equipped with the latest Bosch 4-Channel Anti-Lock Braking System and Electronic Brake Distribution system for better safety during emergency braking.
In tandem with the Mpire Group motto, which is to focus on and provide efficiencies in sales, after-sale service and spare-parts, Mpire Asia formed a collaboration with 15 service dealers nationwide and has targeted to increase this network to 30 service dealers by the end of 2019.
Mpire Asia also launched its toll free number 1300-22-3399 and 24/7 service response team during the event. Subsequently, all states in Peninsular Malaysia would be covered by the service response team.
The View C2 and CS2 are reasonably priced at RM83,888 and RM143,888 respectively (OTR without insurance) and both come with 5 years or 150,000km warranty, being the only ones in the market with such an attractive incentive.
