Malaysian car manufacturer PROTON today announced the launch of a range of lubricants formulated exclusively for its cars. Marketed under the company’s genuine parts range, there are four grades in the Proton Genuine Oil (PGO) line up, dubbed PGO 1 to PGO 4, comprising fully synthetic, semisynthetic and mineral lubricants.
The first full month of restored market conditions was a productive one for national car maker PROTON as the company garnered 10,380 of sales to retain its hold of second place in Malaysia’s automotive sales table. Market share for the month is expected to come in at 23.9% on the back of an estimated Total Industry Volume (TIV) of around 43,500 units. Year to date market share currently stands at 23%, comparing favourably with last year’s closing figure of 20.7%.
Following nearly three months of difficult market conditions due to Covid-19 prevention measures, national car maker PROTON is aiming to finish 2021 strongly. This follows a resumption in production, sales, and export activities, which is expected to contribute towards increased sales volume beginning in September.
