National car maker PROTON today signed a Memorandum Of Agreement (MOA) with premium EV brand smart Automobile Company (smart) to work together to introduce the latter’s range of New Energy Vehicles (NEV) into the rapidly growing ASEAN automotive market.
PROTON would like to announce the appointment of Roslan Abdullah, to the post of Deputy Chief Executive Officer. He officially assumed his duties on 1 January 2022.

Following 12 pandemic affected months, national car maker PROTON ended 2021 on a high note. By selling 14,147 units in December, total sales for the year closed at 114,708 units (domestic + export), the highest closing figure since 2014. This represents an increase of 4.5% over 2020 and is the third consecutive year of volume growth for the company. The achievement is particularly noteworthy as overall Total Industry Volume (TIV) for Malaysia is estimated to have shrunk by 4.6% to just over 505,000 units.

As less restrictive Covid-19 regulations begin to take effect both locally and globally, Malaysian companies are beginning to see an exponential increase in overseas business and export activities.
