Porsche and Sime Darby have inaugurated the sports car manufacturer's first assembly facility outside of Europe at Sime Darby's motor vehicle production and assembly facility in Kedah, Malaysia, with the launch of the nation's first locally assembled Porsche Cayenne.

The new assembly site in Malaysia is said to have been designed to meet Malaysia's specific market needs and operates alongside Porsche's established network of production sites in Europe.

The plant in Malaysia is the first Porsche assembly facility located outside of Europe
The Sime Darby local assembly facility is staffed by a team of highly skilled and 100% Malaysian talent, all of whom have received comprehensive training from Porsche technicians. It is further supported by a network of local suppliers and contracted service providers in the area, empowering the local community with job opportunities, upskilling prospects, and potential for further expansion.

The facility is also designed to meet high sustainability standard, with enough solar panels on its roof to provide all the power needed for operation, while on the ground, a rainwater harvesting system is present to ensure water waste is kept to a minimum.

The locally assembled Cayenne comes with an elevated and enhanced standard equipment range specified exclusively for the Malaysian market, with a specially-curated Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur option package and an exclusive Porsche Design timepiece which can be further personalised. A wide range of lifestyle-oriented Tequipment accessories are also available on request.

The locally assembled Cayenne is currently already available to Malaysian customers for order. Models built at the facility are currently only destined for the Malaysian market.
