PROTON has received more than 150,000 bookings for the first six months of the year and when added to carry-over orders from 2021, we will need to work hard to deliver cars as quickly as possible to eager customers,” said Roslan Abdullah, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, PROTON.

    “Thankfully, the gradual resolution to our parts shortage issues has not only boosted production but also had a positive effect on the after sales network. As promised, all our 3S/4S outlets now have a three months stock of fast-moving parts (FMP) and this is replicated at our parts warehouse. Supply issues for other parts are also being resolved so we are hopeful of delivering a higher level of after-sales service to our customers soon,” he added.
