Volkswagen Malaysia embarks on its inaugural nationwide brand showcase, the ‘Volkswagen On Tour’, kicking off at Queensbay Mall, Penang, giving members of the public free admission and a chance to experience the brand in an exhibition area of more than 11,000 sq. ft.

Globally, deliveries from the Volkswagen Group have seen encouraging growth of 4.7% to 8.68 million vehicles, compared to the same period of that last year. In the Asia-Pacific region, numbers were also positive, with a 15.1% increase in deliveries to 3.29 million vehicles.

Following Volkswagen’s participation at KLIMS 2013, ‘Volkswagen On Tour’ serves as a platform to engage Malaysians nationwide in a Customer dialogue, and is also a public outreach initiative aimed to share Volkswagen’s product range and brand values with Malaysians – its distinctive philosophy, safety technology, ‘Think Blue.’ attitude and cutting-edge innovation that go into Volkswagen’s range of vehicles.
