20 minutes. That’s all it took for 12 limited-edition VW Beetles to get sold-out. VPCM or Volkswagen Passenger Car Malaysia tried something out-of-the-ordinary recently, whereby they introduced and sold a special Beetle on-line at Lazada…
When the sales began at midnight, all 12 Beetles were snapped up in a mere 20 minutes. With a retail price of only RM112,112* each, the first Beetle was snapped up just 26 seconds after midnight.
VPCM had collaborated with Lazada to offer Malaysians limited-edition Volkswagen Beetles on Lazada’s Online Revolution mega-sale from 12th to 14th of December 2017.
Two limited-edition designs were available, the “Herbie 53” in Pure White and White Silver, and the “Hot Bug” in Tornado Red. To lock down their unit, customers only had to purchase an exclusive Welcome Kit on Lazada at RM5,000 which also doubled as a pre-payment booking fee.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM said, “We are delighted to have really pushed boundaries and made history with this collaboration – to be able to sell 12 cars within such a short period of time is amazing. This truly is a testament of how receptive Malaysians are when it comes to online purchasing.”
As added peace-of mind, the limited-edition Beetles were also offered with 5-year manufacturer warranty and 5-year roadside assistance.
