SIME Darby Swedish Auto Sdn Bhd, which was appointed Volvo Car Malaysia’s dealer-partner in October last year, yesterday unveiled its new Volvo 3S (Sales, Service and Spare Parts) Centre, strategically located as part of Sime Darby Motors City in Ara Damansara.

In a statement, the company said the four-storey state-of-the-art centre drew inspiration from the brand’s Scandinavian-inspired ideals and heritage and built-in adherence to Volvo Car’s retail standard — the Volvo Retail Experience.

“It is the first 3S Centre to be equipped with a virtual reality studio and RATC (Reception at The Counter) Bays,” it said.

The company said the 3S Centre had been designed to deliver a contemporary luxury experience, featuring a showroom at the ground floor to display the brand’s premium marques with the service centre, complete with a car detailing area, spread across the second and third floors.

A wheel alignment and balancing zone is located on the fourth floor and all customer parking bays will also be equipped with an electric-vehicle charger.

The centre will be the first fully air-conditioned workshop in Malaysia with a highly skilled after-sales team of 18 managing 14 repair and service bays, of which two are specifically for RATC Bays.

The appointment of Sime Darby Swedish Auto, a unit under Sime Darby Bhd’s Motors Division with an extensive footprint and vast experience, is expected to build on Volvo’s efforts to deliver the brand’s vision to the market and bolster customer confidence as Volvo Car Malaysia grows from strength to strength. — Bernama
