Petaling Jaya, 9 September 2021 – Honda Malaysia (or the Company) today announced a proactive “I’m Vaccinated” campaign to provide customers and dealer associates with added confidence and safety assurance at Honda dealerships nationwide. Protecting the health and well‑being of the dealer associates, the Company and its dealers are committed to ensuring that all the dealer associates are getting their vaccination in a timely manner. To date, 80% of overall dealer associates have been fully vaccinated and only those who have completed their vaccination doses will be on duty at the dealerships. In view of the encouraging progress, Honda Malaysia targets to complete full vaccination of its dealer associates by October 2021.
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Madoka Chujo said, “We are thankful that our car production has resumed operations and Honda dealerships¹ can carry out sales and after‑sales services to serve our customers. We will not take the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) lightly and will continue to strictly follow all the necessary preventive and precautionary measures that we have been practising since the emergence of COVID‑19 in Malaysia. Under the “I’m Vaccinated” campaign which kicks off this month at all our dealerships nationwide, our dealer associates who are fully vaccinated and have passed 14 days from the date of their second dose will be provided with a badge and mask that have a specially‑designed ‘I Am Fully Vaccinated’ logo for easy identification.”
“We believe this initiative can help to boost customer confidence during interactions with Honda dealer associates by showing that we are ready to meet and serve the customers in a safe environment as well as providing them peace of mind while being present at the dealerships. We also hope to encourage more people to get vaccinated, in addition to adhering to the SOPs at all times. Through this effort, it will not only protect themselves, but also to help the country to achieve its herd immunity as soon as possible,” Ms. Chujo added.
In addition to safeguarding the safety of the customers and Honda dealer associates, the Company emphasises that it will continue to ensure the sanitisation and disinfection of the premises are undertaken on a routine and frequent basis at all its dealerships.
Following the resumption of its sales activity, the Company initiated the “Government Staff Program” to further enhance the Joy of Buying experience. This is an exclusive programme for Government employees² and their spouses to own the stylish compact hatchback Jazz and the spacious Full 7‑Seater Crossover BR‑V with additional benefits. From 1st September until 31st October 2021³, the customers² can enjoy special discounts worth up to RM1,000³ on top of the monthly promotion³.

In conjunction with the Malaysia Day celebration, Honda Malaysia also introduced a September Special Benefits promotion from 1st until 30th September 2021³ that offers rewards worth up to RM6,000³, allowing customers to purchase their preferred Honda models with more savings.
As the Company is gearing up to regain its business momentum, Honda Malaysia will continue to monitor the situation as well as Government’s announcement on the measures to curb the spread of COVID‑19.
