Since its debut in the Malaysian market in January this year, SOCAR has been working hard to expand the availability of its service and its fleet. The company has just announced that its fleet has grown to over 700 cars after hitting the 400 mark in June, with availability in Klang Valley and Cyberjaya. Now it has added another feather on its cap.
Hello, Johor Bahru.
The fast-growing car-sharing platform rolled out its Johor Bahru operations on 3 October. It currently has a fleet of 33 cars serving 17 zones around the southern city.
SOCAR has aims to grow its fleet to 1,000 cars by the end of the year.
The proponent of multi-flexing has made it highly affordable for people to rent cars for short stints of as low as an hour, to days and weeks.
Rates can start from as low as MYR8 per hour depending on the type of car which includes super minis, sedans, SUV, MPV as well as sporty hatches like the 3-door MINI. It recently added the hybrid BMW 330e luxury sedan to the mix, as well as a MINI John Cooper Works.
The beauty about SOCAR is that petrol is included for free – up to 30km per hour, or 300km per day for daily booking. A petrol card is included in the car so it’s easy to top up when fuel is running low.
Each SOCAR has a designated parking spot, whether it’s in the basement of a building, shopping complex, office block or LRT station.
Adding a new dimension to the mix is its free door-to-door (D2D) service where you can have a SOCAR delivered to your doorstep.
SOCAR also has an exclusive one-way drop-off service to KLIA and KLIA2.
