Malaysia’s leading car-sharing platform, SOCAR announced its plan to put youth in the driver’s seat by lowering the minimum age requirement and provide free lifetime memberships for 19 year-olds who have a full Competent Driving License (CDL).
Targeted at students who begin a new chapter through college and university enrolments, they are encouraged to be more independent to manage study commitments and achieve their ambitions. SOCAR aims to provide these students with the opportunity to be behind the wheel of their own future through car-sharing.
SOCAR’s footprint in Malaysia has grown exponentially with over 1,400 cars to drive and 750 accessible zones in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Johor and Penang. To provide students with maximum flexibility, affordability and convenience, SOCAR is actively working with local universities to develop new zones on campuses or within the area.
“Not everyone has the privilege of owning their own car, especially when they are still students but we believe that their freedom should not be limited just because of that. With car-sharing everyone with a Competent Driving License now has the privilege of “owning” a car even if it’s just for a few hours providing independence, flexibility and convenience even to the younger generation,” said Leon Foong, CEO of SOCAR Malaysia.
For all new members aged 20 or below, SOCAR allows reservations for selected cars including Perodua Axia, Proton Iriz, Kia Picanto, Perodua Myvi, Perodua Bezza, Honda City and Toyota Vios.
With more than 18 car models to drive, free mileage, insurance and maintenance covered, SOCAR will also reward free lifetime membership worth RM50 to all new members who sign up from 26 March – 30 April 2019.
The membership subscription fee is charged on the first drive only. Additionally, new users will also enjoy discounted rates for their first drive on the selected car models below:
