MobileKids 2015 Showcase by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia at The School

In its quest to make road travel safer for children, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is offering free rental of child car seats this festive season. Effective 1st July 2015, 110 units of child car seats are available to members of the public on a first-come-first-served basis.

Kicking off the free car seat rental campaign, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Vice President, Passenger Cars, Mark Raine, explained, “Safety has always been a key pillar for Mercedes-Benz. We hope that our rental campaign, which will begin during this travel season and continue for the rest of 2015, will assist families who are travelling with young children. While we encourage motorists to ensure that their vehicles are in good condition before a long drive, we also urge those travelling with young children to take advantage of this added safety feature to safeguard the occupants in the vehicle, especially children.”

The child car seats are fully ECE R44-compliant convertible car seats. Available in two options with ISOFIX-points (birth up to 18kg) and without ISOFIX-points (birth up to 25kg), these seats convert from a rear-facing infant seat to a forward-facing car seat, and protects children from birth up to 25 kg. For a refundable deposit of RM150 (without ISOFIX) and RM300 (with ISOFIX), families will be able to use the car seat for a period of one month. The free child car seat rental campaign is for a duration of six months, from July 2015 to December 2015.

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia’s free child car seat rental campaign is an extension of ‘MobileKids’, a long-term and sustainable corporate social responsibility programme initiated by its parent company, Daimler AG, in 2001. Aimed at keeping drivers and road users, particularly children, safe, ‘MobileKids’ engages both children and youth using age- appropriate and fun methods incorporating real-life road situations.

This year, also in conjunction with the Hari Raya season, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia will start its MobileKids 2015 showcase at The School in Jaya One, Petaling Jaya. Parked at Level 1 and open from 11 am to 7 pm daily, MobileKids 2015 will be remain at its location until the end of this year.

“Comprehensive protection in all situations is the objective of our integral safety philosophy. We hope that together with the free child car seat rental campaign and MobileKids 2015, families will recognise the importance of child safety in vehicles. We also take this opportunity to wish everyone celebrating, Selamat Hari Raya and to remain safe on the roads while driving,” said Raine.
