OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKuala Lumpur, 10 July 2018 – As the local motor insurance industry detariffication came into effect on 1 July, AXA Affin general insurance has taken the initiative to launch Malaysia’s first telematics motor insurance in the presence of Emmanuel Nivet, CEO,  Dr Wong Shaw Voon, director-general, Malaysian Institute of Road Safety (Miros), business associates and the media.

“We had contacted tests in 144 vehicles covering over 1 million km prior to this launch and soon, it will be available for fleet operators,” said Rohit Nambiar, chief transformation & operations officer.
