SIME Darby Swedish Auto Sdn Bhd, which was appointed Volvo Car Malaysia Sdn Bhd’s dealerpartner in October last year, yesterday unveiled its new Volvo 3S (sales, service and spare parts) centre.

Located as part of Sime Darby Motors City in Ara Damansara, the four-storey state-of-the-art centre is the next stage in creating a meaningful automobile brand partnership between Sime Darby Swedish Auto and Volvo Car Malaysia.

Drawing inspiration from the brand’s Scandinavian-inspired ideals and heritage, the 3S centre was built in adherence to Volvo Car’s retail standard — the Volvo retail experience. It is the first 3S centre to be equipped with a VR studio (virtual-reality studio) and an RATC (reception at the counter) bay.

The 3S cent re has been designed to deliver a contemporary luxury experience, featuring a showroom at the ground floor to display the brand’s premium marques, a service centre complete with car detailing area that spreads across the second and third floors, while a wheel alignment and balancing zone is located on the fourth floor.

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

All customer parking bays will also be equipped with an electric-vehicle charger.

The appointment of Sime Darby Swedish Auto, a unit under Sime Darby Bhd’s Motors Division with its 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.

The service centre opens from 8.30am to 5.30pm on Mondays to Fridays and from 8.30am to 12.45pm on Saturdays. For any enquiries, customers can call 03-7623 3200. The centre will be officially launched on Feb 20.
