Nissan, Kia, and Peugeot have announced that a few of their models will have price cuts up to 3% after the implementation of Sales and Services Tax (SST)
“This is because we don’t collect as much (tax) compared with the GST, the prices of goods can be flexible and it is also adopted by the government to ensure prosperity for the people,” Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said on 11 September, as reported by FMT.
Nissan sees a price cut of up to RM5,400 for 12 models
According to Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM), a few models like the Navara will remain at the zero-rated GST prices while stocks last as the SST-inclusive prices have not been provided yet, as reported by Paul Tan.
