Kuala Lumpur, 1 July 2022 – myTukar has just announced a relaunch of its brand identity, to reflect its strengthened branding and capabilities as part of the regional CARRO network. A fresh new look for a fresh take on the expanding used car industry, myTukar’s creative rebranding exercise, which includes a new look and colour scheme, is designed to mirror its parent company’s focused vision and cohesive direction to be the #1 used car marketplace in Southeast Asia and beyond.
The all-new brand look is just the start, with a series of exciting new changes lined up for the company. And customers won’t have long to wait, with myTukar’s first campaign powered by Carro all ready to roll out in the coming weeks.
Derrick Eng, CEO of myTukar said, ”Many things have changed since the start of the pandemic: our lifestyle, habits, preferences and now, as we transition into the endemic phase, there is no better time to “tukar” your ride too. With our collective effort as a company, alongside our partners, dealers and customers who trust in our credibility, the used car industry has never been so accessible, transparent and trusted. The improvement to myTukar is beyond rebranding; we have integrated our capabilities, business, data intelligence and technical knowledge with our parent company, CARRO to bring even better value to our customers.”

“Our regional expansion journey started with a goal to transform the traditional pre-owned car ownership process to one that is more digital. After our entry into Indonesia and Thailand, our expansion journey brought us here to Malaysia and into a partnership with myTukar, as they share our vision of enhancing the digital experience of the country’s car dealerships, to be the undisputed leader in the region. myTukar’s rebrand today is a renewal of the company’s commitment to delivering a world-class experience to customers, ensuring a smooth and transparent car ownership process. In aligning our brand’s identity and core values with one another, we are thrilled to be a part of myTukar’s ongoing journey,” added Aaron Tan, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of CARRO.
With customers now more confident in used cars, demand for used cars shot up by 8% in the first quarter of 2022. To meet the rise in demand, myTukar is hosting another automotive fair at its flagship retail showroom, the myTukar Retail Experience Centre, in Puchong South. Held from 1 to 3 July, over 6,000 people are expected to attend the three-day fair, gaining first-hand access to over 1,000 myTukar Certified Pre-Owned cars.
The brand looks to make convenience a key aspect of the purchasing journey moving forward, as part of its commitment to its customers. Customers will also soon be able to enjoy a new unique experience, as myTukar will be introducing its fleet of flatbed trucks to deliver vehicles directly to customers’ doorsteps.
In addition to that, customers would also be able to obtain on-the-spot trade-in value for their vehicles, enjoy a low interest rate of 1.88%, same-day loan approval and car collection. Participating banking institutions that will be at the event include Maybank, CIMB Bank, Public Bank, RHB Bank, Hong Leong Bank, and myTukar’s financial service provider, Genie Financial Services.
