Honda, Socar provide 50 units of Honda City to frontliners

KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 – Honda Malaysia has collaborated with car-sharing company Socar Mobility Malaysia Sdn Bhd (SOCAR) to provide 50 units of Honda City to frontliners in order to help ease their travel challenges.

The programme is available for a one-month duration of usage for frontliners who are Honda customers but are unable to use their vehicles during this difficult time, with Honda Malaysia bearing all rental charges.

Honda Malaysia managing director and chief executive officer Toichi Ishiyama said the initiative with SOCAR is introduced to help the frontliners whose Honda cars are out of service at the moment by providing the City as their temporary on-the-road companion.

“The past few weeks have not been easy for all in Malaysia, especially the frontliners who are working tirelessly to protect Malaysia from the pandemic.

“Despite having to withstand the extra strain that is being put on them by the current situation, their selfless dedication and sacrifice have gained utmost respect from people in Malaysia and earned worldwide recognition,” he said in a statement.

Honda Malaysia is committed to assisting affected Honda customers (frontliners) with the programme as the company will bear the rental charges, he added.

Affected Honda customers (frontliners) can log on to Honda Malaysia’s official website for more information on the programme.
