Like the Kazakh’s nomadic culture that centered on horses as a mode of transport and food, car ownership is crucial to many Malaysians. While ownership was once a signifier of adulthood and success, to many younger professionals nowadays, the notion of owning nothing is the new luxury despite having disposable income. “I think there’s a value that’s been placed on intelligence and being smart about how you spend your money and that has also coincided with the rise of the sharing economy,” explained Jennifer Hyman, Rent the Runway’s chief executive to The New York Times. In other words, for those who prefer the experience without committing to purchases, GoCar Subscription might just be your solution.
So, GoCar Subscription…
Similar to the likes of Netflix and Spotify, GoCar Subscription is a vehicle subscription service. So instead of forking out a hefty upfront payment or tied down to a multi-year car lease, you have the option to cancel your subscription whenever. A refundable deposit of RM2,500 will also be charged to your account when your subscription begins.
My monthly subscription includes…
For a simple monthly subscription fee, you will have access to vehicles such as the Nissan Almera (RM1,600/month), Nissan Serena S-Hybrid (RM3,300), and Renault Captur (RM2,500/month). If you’re worried about the extras – insurance, road tax, maintenance, mileage and roadside assistance – don’t be, because they are already included in the cost. To pick up your GoCar, schedule an appointment with our customer representative and head over to GoCar Malaysia HQ.
