Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has just introduced a new convenient way of buying and browsing cars. Called the Toyota Virtual Showroom, the online-based service allows interested customers to check, browse, as well as learn more of a vehicle of their choosing without having the need to go to a dealership.
According to Cristina Arevalo, First Vice President for Brand & Product Planning, the Toyota Virtual Showroom was designed to give customers the experience of checking out various Toyota vehicles without ever leaving the comfort and safety of their homes. More importantly, even those currently outside of the country can use the virtual showroom to take a detailed look at the models being sold locally.
“They can rotate the exterior view as if walking around the actual vehicle or manipulate the interior view to see detailed specifications. They can even have a sample computation and prepare the required vehicle purchase documents ahead of time. This way, they are better equipped when they finally visit the dealer,” said Arevalo.
The virtual showroom also features product videos together with brochures of the vehicle. Furthermore, customers can check out the various variants of a specific model, similar to what they would be shown at the dealership in person. As mentioned earlier, customers can also get a 360-degree view of a car's exterior and interior to get a better look at the car they want.
Should a customer plan to make a purchase, they can set their downpayment percentage along with the estimated monthly payments on the website itself. This will allow clients to see just how much they will have to pay per month for the vehicle they chose. Once they have decided on a specific model, they can send their inquiries to a dealership of their liking with their complete name, e-mail address, contact number, and specific model/variant.
The Toyota Virtual Showroom will be continuously updated with more 360-degree vehicle displays, along with more interactive features designed to enhance the customer experience.
As the country adjusts to the new normal amid the COVID-19 pandemic, TMP's new online showroom serves as a great alternative to those that wish to buy/browse a brand new Toyota without having to leave the safety of their homes during General Community Quarantine.
