China Auto Manufacturers (M) Sdn Bhd (CAM), the sales and marketing arm of light commercial vehicles under the Sendok Group, recently released the Placer-X A4 4RB2 petrol engine with an automatic transmission. The company claimed that this was the first automatic transmission van in Malaysia.
Automatic Transmission Option Now Available for Placer-X A4
Available with a 2.4L 4RB2 16-valve DOHC petrol engine and automatic transmission, this medium-roof 12-seater van features a luxurious, spacious and comfortable interior. It has a wide sliding door for easy passenger entry and rear foldable seats for larger storage space, making it wide and roomy. It has a separate rear air-condition unit with 6 air vents and is equipped with 3-point seatbelts for all the seats.
The vehicle also comes with safety features ABS+EBD, intelligent brake assistance system, anti-glare rear view mirror and reverse camera with distance buzzer.
As an automatic transmission van, it caters to people with an interest in owning a bigger vehicle with more space and seats but who are not familiar with operating manual transmission vehicles. Combining ease of control and manoeuvrability with its shorter and smaller size, CAM believes customers would feel as if they are driving a bigger-sized car rather than a van, especially for female drivers.
Described as ‘A Van for All Occasions in just the Right Size’ with a length of 4.8 metres, it is said to be suitable as a family van for transporting big families (as many as 12 people) and a luxury van for transporting VIPs and business executives. It could also be used as a school bus, tourist bus, chauffeured van for hotel guests, among other roles.
Apart from the petrol engine with auto transmission, there is also the Placer-X A4 DK4B1 with 2.5L common rail turbo diesel with intercooler (manual transmission).
CAM vans and light trucks come with 3 years/100,000km warranty backed by more than 60 Service Centres nationwide to support CAM customer in after-sale service. Furthermore, all CAM vehicle customers are covered with free towing service during the warranty period and 24/7 breakdown support.
