Malaysia to Become Volkswagen Export Hub for Electric and Conventional Vehicles

Volkswagen Group Malaysia (VGM) has unveiled plans to establish Malaysia as an export hub for the Volkswagen brand, according to Tengku Zafrul Aziz, the Minister of Investment, Trade, and Industry. Following discussions between the ministry and VGM officials, the carmaker has indicated its intention to manufacture both electric vehicles and conventional models within the country.

Previously, Volkswagen models were imported into Malaysia, but now certain models are being assembled locally. Notably, the Touareg model is being assembled in Malaysia for the first time outside of Europe. The locally assembled flagship SUV comes with the recommended retail price of RM469,990.

Tengku Zafrul Aziz expressed confidence that this collaboration would bolster Malaysia’s position in the regional automotive sector, signalling a significant step forward for the country’s automotive industry and positioning Malaysia as a key player in the manufacturing and export of Volkswagen vehicles.
