Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Used car buying and selling platform myTukar has officially launched in its first phase new retail chain openings to expand its physical purchasing experience with customers. 

The first phase launches were made across major shopping centers in Klang Valley, namely in Paradigm Mall, Petaling Jaya; One Utama, Petaling Jaya; and MyTOWN Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur.


Together with the ‘myTukar Retail Experience Centres’, the platform has also revamped its retail website which now carries integrated e-commerce features with the aim to provide a completely transparent customer purchasing experience. The new centres will be complete with the brand new retail website. 

The myTukar Retail Experience Centres is one of the many initiatives in the platform’s business pipeline to bring a complete car ownership experience to all car buyers.

“This innovative concept is a breakthrough in the used car industry and will be expanded nationwide in the future, thereby supporting the expansion of the used car industry. The brand new purchasing experience launched today is complementing our key collaborations with partners such as Sime Darby Auto Selection, DRB-HICOM, and authorized dealer partners,” said Fong Hon Sum, CEO of myTukar


At the kiosks, customers can enjoy a 360-degree view of the cars available for sale via touchscreen monitors. They can also trade in and have their used cars inspected while having the opportunity to take the potential new cars for a test drive, where ll can be done with the conveniences and facilities of a shopping mall.

In line with enhancing customer experience, myTukar has also recently announced in December 2020 a new technology that aims to automate and standardize the car inspection process within its platform. It will also utilize features including analyzing images and videos of cars to spot defects such as dents, scratches, and paint deterioration.
