AmBank has entered into a special tie-up with Tesla Inc. to offer a super attractive auto financing package for Malaysians purchasing the much-awaited Tesla Model Y electric car which officially debuted in Malaysia today. AmBank is one of only two Tesla Preferred Financing Providers in Malaysia.

The launch of Tesla Model Y in Kuala Lumpur marks the official entry of Tesla in the country under its Malaysian entity Tesla Malaysia which involves full-fledged bona fide sales, distribution, warranty, and after-sales services.

Group Chief Executive Officer of AmBank Group, Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir said today (July 20): “We are pleased to be selected by Tesla Inc. as one of only two Preferred Financial Providers for Tesla electric vehicle (EV) models in Malaysia which augurs well for our EV auto financing portfolio aligned with AmBank’s broader Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) agenda. AmBank is proud to support Malaysia’s aspiration to become carbon neutral by 2050 and in line with the Low Carbon Mobility Blueprint (2021-2030) framework that aims to shift Malaysia towards electrification in the transportation industry as a key strategy to reduce emissions, hence preferential financing rates will be offered for EVs. For purchase of Tesla models Y, AmBank is offering one of the most competitive auto financing rates in the market which tips the scale when buyers home in on the most attractive financing package that suits their repayment plans.”

“Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

We’re committed and excited to help driving a zero emission and greener future for Malaysia,” said Isabel Fan, Regional Director of Tesla.

In addition to that, AmBank is partnering with AmGeneral Insurance Berhad to insure Tesla vehicles.
