The collaboration was announced at a handover ceremony at TCEC’s headquarters in Petaling Jaya during which the first 50 units of Renault Captur were delivered to GoCar. The remaining 100 units will be fulfilled in subsequent months.
The Renault Captur is Europe’s best-selling crossover in its segment. Its vibrant exterior styling, powerful turbocharged engine, excellent fuel efficiency, excellent safety rating and affordable maintenance package all combine to make it a good addition to the GoCar fleet.
“The fashionable yet sporty Renault Captur is an excellent choice for GoCar members. Its stylish exterior with vibrant two-toned colours adds a distinct French flair to our fleet while its impressive equipment and features deliver enjoyable driving performance in addition to offering comprehensive safety features,” said Alan Cheah, CEO, GoCar Mobility Sdn Bhd.
Through the GoCar sharing service, the Renault Captur is offered with a rate of RM18.90 per hour, RM189 daily, RM1,323 weekly or RM5,670 for a month.

“Renault Captur is the perfect embodiment of 120 years of Renault know-how and technical expertise including breakthroughs like turbocharging and excellent efficiency. Through this collaboration with GoCar, we hope to offer more opportunities for Malaysians to experience a crossover model that has been Europe’s segment leader for many years,” said Kuan Kim Luen, CEO, TC Euro Cars Sdn Bhd.
