National car maker PROTON has broken through the 100,000 sales barrier for a third year in succession. Overall sales of 14,187 units (domestic + export) in November have pushed its year-to-date (YTD) number to 100,566 units, raising expectations the company will be able to end the year with positive sales growth.
National car maker PROTON today officially unveiled its new brand gallery. Dubbed the Gallery of Inspiration and housed at the Centre of Excellence complex, it marks the next step in the company’s rebranding journey that began in 2019 and is open to the public every Monday to Friday from 8.30am – 5.30pm.
Following a successful October when sales grew by 28.7% compared to the previous month, national car maker PROTON has now exceeded its year-to-date (YTD) sales volume from last year. By selling 13,362 units, cumulative sales now stand at 86,379 units, which is a 1.6% improvement over sales from the first ten months of 2020 (84,999 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. PROTON is no exception, and the company achieved a new milestone in Pakistan when the Proton Saga started rolling off production lines in the country on 13 October.
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.
Following the implementation of the second round of its PIKAS vaccination programme last week, over 86% of PROTON’s 8,486 staff members are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19. That number is expected to increase over the coming weeks as 98% have already received their first dose, in line with the company’s aim to achieve herd immunity in its chain of operations.
PROTON today announced the launch of the new 2022 Proton Iriz and Persona, offering updated design elements plus enhanced features. The latest additions to the company’s range also come in new colours, while offering improved comfort and safety for all passengers.
