The distinctive three-pointed star shined brightly in 2018 with an extraordinary performance of 13,079 vehicles sold, translating into a 9% overall growth. Capturing a 2.4 per cent market share*, the achievement cements Mercedes-Benz as the undisputed luxury lifestyle brand in Malaysia and the global arena.

MBM President and CEO, Dr Claus Weidner said: “2018 was another successful year in the 15 year-long extraordinary journey for Mercedes-Benz Malaysia and the Mercedes-Benz brand. Our efforts to invigorate the brand experience for our increasingly diverse fans have been fruitful and we are happy to retain our position as the number one luxury lifestyle brand.

He added, “Offering a seamless customer experience to our valued customers is a core value that we uphold and we believe this is important to ensure sustainability of the business. The mantra has always been about “Putting the customer at the centre of our activities.”

Commenting on the 2018 performance, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MBM, Mark Raine said, “We are extremely proud of our history-making performance for 2018. We delivered 13,079 Mercedes-Benz Cars to customers, further cementing our position as the leading premium brand in Malaysia. Our fresh-faced product portfolio with the locally assembled Mercedes-AMG C 43 and GLC 43, and all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class has succeeded in keeping our fans excited about the brand. Furthermore, we gave the market a taste of the future with the EQ Concept this year. We intend to keep the momentum going with more exciting events and products in 2019.”

In 2018, MBM’s performance was spearheaded by the locally produced limousines, which recorded 7,910 units sold. Following closely were the Mercedes-Benz SUVs with 2,613 units sold, particularly by the locally produced Mercedes-Benz GLC 200 and GLC 250. The German marque expects continued positive demand for this segment. The Mercedes-Benz compact cars recorded a total of 1,875 units sold, while the Mercedes-Benz Dream Cars, recorded a total of 662 units sold, a 77% growth for the three-pointed star’s brand shapers.

The 20 vehicle launches spread throughout 2018 sustained the healthy momentum of demand for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The key launches included the locally- assembled Mercedes-AMG C 43 and GLC 43, Mercedes-AMG E 53 Sedan and Mercedes-AMG E  53 Coupé, its New Dream Cars Collection, the New Mercedes-Benz S-Class Family, and the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class and new generation C-Class. Additionally, MBM showcased the brand’s innovative edge with the EQ Concept premiere in Kuala Lumpur – a first in Southeast Asia. The milestone has positioned Mercedes-Benz as a reinventer of the automotive industry with the EQ brand, pioneering the direction and setting the stage for future mobility.

Going hand-in-hand with its Best Products, MBM spearheaded engaging activities to match a diverse fan base aligned to its overall Best Customer Experience commitment. MBM engaged with fans through events like Urban Hunting x ULTRA Singapore 2018, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Kuala Lumpur, the Mercedes Trophy and introduction of the AMG Owners Club Malaysia (AOCM) which are aimed at elevating the AMG experience with exclusive access to all things AMG for owners. Complementing the seamless ownership experience, Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia (MBSM) recorded a steady growth in line with the three-pointed star’s progress. For the year, MBSM financed four out of every 10 Mercedes-Benz vehicles sold and has a solid servicing portfolio of MYR 2.7 billion**

MBSM’s commitment to innovative peace-of-mind financing and insurance solutions was further embodied with the introduction of new products like AgilityPlus and Lease2Go. MBM’s emphasis on upholding Best Customer Experience at every touchpoint translated into the highest Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) After-sales score in history. The achievement has demonstrated the brand’s excellence in managing the high volume of Mercedes-Benz vehicles by maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction. The passion and expertise behind the Best Customer Experience brand promise was showcased once again in this year’s Mercedes-Benz SEA II Skills Competition. 2018 marked the competition’s 10th anniversary and first year opening its doors to the South East Asia II (SEAII) region. A total of 613 Customer Services Professionals and Advanced Modern Apprenticeship finalists competed for the title of best technician, service advisor and process specialist within the Mercedes-Benz network.

The celebrated technicians and customer services personnel make up the backbone of MBM’s 35 dedicated dealerships nationwide. In tandem with its growing fan base, MBM launched five new touchpoints last year including the NZ Wheels Klang Autohaus, Hap Seng Star Setia Alam Autohaus and Asbenz Stern Kuantan Autohaus among others. Trained with a view of keeping customers at the centre, every touch point is key in delivering the Best Products and Best Customer Service throughout the entire customer journey. To date, Mercedes-Benz has the largest premium dealer network in the country.

Recognising the dedication, passion and hard work of its dealer partners, MBM held the inaugural Dealer of the Year awards in March 2018. The award is poised to be an annual event aimed at rewarding dealerships for operational excellence and commitment to delivering the Best Customer Experience.

Another exciting offering introduced in the network for 2018 was the Mercedes-Benz Certified pre-owned vehicle programme. The programme represents the highest quality in used cars from Mercedes-Benz worldwide, previously known as Proven Exclusivity. Mercedes-Benz as a brand has invested over MYR 1 billion in the Malaysian market since 2003 and MBM’s production plant in Pekan, Pahang demonstrates its long-term position and consistent commitment to the Malaysian economy. In FY2018, the production plant produced 9,854 vehicles, including the newest addition being the Mercedes-Benz S 450 L and the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Facelift.

MBM’s long-term commitment is also demonstrated through the Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Training Academy built to develop the skills of Malaysia’s youth and create meaningful job opportunities in the automotive industry. 2018 saw an additional 26 apprentices graduated bringing the total to 853 globally certified local apprentices who have passed through its doors since the establishment of the training programme. On its outlook for the year ahead, Dr Weidner said, “2019 will be another exciting year for Mercedes-Benz with refreshing innovations and new benchmarks to elevate the customer experience. We are excited to share these updates in due time.” Earlier today, Daimler AG announced that on a global level Mercedes-Benz sold approximately 2.3 million cars worldwide in 2018, increasing its unit sales by 0.9 per cent, making 2018 the most successful year in terms of sales in the company’s history. The new sales record in the car division of Daimler AG was driven in particular by the success of Mercedes-Benz in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific was identified as the region with the strongest growth in 2018, delivering 943,473 (+7.8%) Mercedes-Benz cars to customers in 2018. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia was one of the few markets in the Asia Pacific region to have delivered more passenger cars than ever before in a single year.

Additionally, all tickets for Shopee’s Regional Brand Ambassador, BLACKPINK’s 2019 World Tour that went on sale were sold out in less than an hour, with 100 tickets snapped up within the first 30 seconds.

Malaysians grew up with Milo so it came as no surprise when the Nestle Milo Energy Cube became the top favourite, with raving reviews about its unique bite-size goodness. Additionally, people are getting more health conscious as they continue to maintain a balanced lifestyle. The Russell Taylors Air Fryer was a sought-after product to add to their kitchen essentials as a healthy alternative to fry food while another crowd-pleaser was the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 for wearers to track their fitness progress by recording their daily activities such as walking, sleep, heart rate and calories burnt.

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee, said,

Shopee 12.12 Birthday Sale marks another significant milestone as we celebrate a year of exponential growth. This follows the success of Shopee 11.11 Big Sale in November and Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day in September.

Launched at Sunway Nexis, this campaign featured a panel discussion with industry experts; fun games and activities as well as special appearances by key influencers such as Bujibu Chempel, Johan and his cats and The Als Malaysia Cat.

Together with PURINA, these experts and influencers were on hand to showcase the new PURINA innovations and provide advice on cats’ health and interactions.

“For 85 years and counting, PURINA has been guided by the belief that pets and people are better together. This has inspired us to continuously drive pet nutrition forward and today, we are proud to unveil three new innovations namely PURINA ONE, Fancy Feast, and Felix as part of our PAWsitve Difference campaign. These innovations are made with one thing in mind, your pets’ nutrition, hence it contains all the right and best quality ingredients your pets need to keep them healthy,” said Lam Pui Yuee, Business Executive Officer, PURINA Petcare, Nestlé PURINA Malaysia.

With PURINA ONE, cat owners are able to see a difference in their cats within three weeks. From the first week, owners can see their cats being more energetic and have healthier digestion in the second week. By the third week, their cats would have a shinier coat. It contains high-quality ingredients of which more than 30% is made out of protein where meat is the first ingredient.

Understanding that cats love to have a variety of flavourful food and textures, Fancy Feast Dry Gourmet Food is now available in a larger pack size for added convenience. Together with its Wet Food range, Fancy Feast Dry Gourmet Food completes the total culinary food experience that cats love. This is indeed true as Fancy Feast is endorsed by Malaysia’s own celebrity cat Bujibu Chempel.

The new Felix single serve wet food, is made with a Japanese recipe that contains meaty grilled chunks in succulent golden jelly with irresistible smell. It is available in six different varieties ranging from Adult Tuna, Salmon, Chicken, Mackerel and Sardine, and Kitten Tuna.

Furthermore, all of PURINA’s cat range products is certified with ‘SUCI BERSIH’ which certifies that the product’s ingredients comply with the Shariah Law. The logo that appears on the packaging is awarded by the Islamic Food Research Centre (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd., which is a member of the World Halal Council.

To help pet owners understand their pets’ nutrition health better, PURINA invited Dr Hasliza Abu Hassim who is a senior lecturer attached to the Department of Veterinary Preclinical Sciences, University Putra Malaysia, to share her knowledge on pet nutrition. During her panel discussion session Dr Hasliza explained the type of foods cat can and should consume. She also stressed on the importance of understanding the nutritional needs of cats and the benefits of feeding cat formulated food over human food (table scraps).

“As we often find ourselves bombarded with information both online and offline these days, it is almost impossible for us to know what is the right information that we should follow. Hence, we are pleased to have Dr Hasliza and Johan here with us to share their advice and experience with pet owners and help them understand their pets’ needs better to make a PAWSitive difference in their pets,” said Pui Yuee.

PAWS Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) was present at the event to drive public awareness around animal adoption, educating the public on the challenges of running an animal shelter, and how each person can do their part. This was done via activities at their booth and through a sharing session by the PAWS shelter manager, Edward Lim.

To commemorate this, PURINA will be providing pet food to PAWS for over 100 pets over 100 days, with hopes of nourishing these pets with the right amount of nutrition and keep them healthy.

PURINA also donated 12% of total sales of products from 1st to 12th December 2018 on its Shopee page to PAWS. This is part of PURINA’s commitment for ‘Make a PAWSitive difference’ campaign.
