CEO of Proton Edar, Roslan Adbullad on the great success commented, "After a soft start to the year, Malaysia’s automotive industry has finally hit its stride for 2021. We estimate TIV to be over 63,000 units, suggesting all brands will post their best numbers for the year. For PROTON, March was a very good sales month as we achieved our highest figure in 90 months but our sense of achievement is tempered by the fact that it could have been even better if we were able to produce more units."

He further added "As things stand, we still have a large order bank to fulfill so over the next few months, PROTON will strive to increase production while maintaining our focus on delivering high-quality products. We are also mindful that PENJANA incentives are currently due to expire by the end of June, so we aim to ensure as many customers as possible are able to enjoy the tax holiday given by the government."
