    Proton Persona

    The Proton Iriz and Persona, on the other hand, badly suffered from approval delays last month, leading to temporary halt registrations.

    Proton’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer said, Following a hectic June where automotive industry players scrambled to lock in bookings before the end of SST incentives, July was a month of consolidation where market demand fell to normal levels, and everybody concentrated on fulfilling orders already received. PROTON was no exception and with our parts supply situation continuing to improve, we were finally able to show the true sales potential of the Proton X50.”

    “The company is immensely proud of the model becoming the first SUV to be crowned as the best-selling vehicle in Malaysia and we are thankful for the support from our customers. This achievement and PROTON’s sales leadership in other segments shows our business plan is on the right track and repays the confidence placed in the brand by buyers, investors and other stakeholders,”

    Proton X70

    The brand also performed well on the export front with 380 units in July 2022, bringing the yearly total to date to 3,102 units. Last year, the same figure remained at 3,018 units. The leading export models by the brand being the Saga, X70, and X50 (126 units). This places the automaker in the position of country’s leading vehicle exporter.

    On this Roslan Abdullah added, “The easing of restrictions in global trade has been a major boost for PROTON’s export division. With five months to go, we are on target for yet another year of double-digit percentage growth, though our enthusiasm is couched by economic issues faced in overseas markets.

    “Domestically, we are working to ensure that despite recent interest rate hikes, our customers will still be able to afford the vehicles they ordered. It’s vital to ensure we convert as many bookings as possible into transacted sales as this will help drive registrations as we continue to strive for more future success,”.
