About Proton Malaysia

Being a national car company, Proton is the second-largest automotive brand in Malaysia as well as leading one in Southeast Asia. The company has a total of 617 authorized dealers across 138 cities of the country.  

It currently operates three manufacturing plants, with a combined annual capacity of 360,000 units. The company headquarters is located in Shah Alam, Selangor, and additional facilities are operated at Proton City, Perak.

Proton was established in 1983 as the national car brand of Malaysia at the behest of Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Mahathir Mohamed, who had originally conceived the idea of a Malaysian car. The first Proton to hit the Malaysian streets was Saga, which was the result of a partnership with Japan's Mitsubishi Motors. 

Proton produced its first indigenously designed non-badge engineered car in 2000 and elevated Malaysia as the 11th country in the world having the capability of car designing.

Proton’s line up currently comprises six models - Saga sedan, Persona sedan, Perdana sedan, Exora MPV, Iriz hatchback, and X70 SUV. While Suprima S hatchback, Ertiga mini-MPV, Prevé sedan are among the recently discontinued models.

According to the last year’s sales numbers, Proton grabs the second position after beating Honda and Toyota in the top ten car brands list in Malaysia. With a market share of 16.6% in 2019, Proton sold a total of 100,183 units. This is a massive increase of 54.7% as compared to 64744 units of 2018.

This is due to X70 sales, which gained a lot of applause and recognition immediately after the launch. Not only this, but revamped Persona, Iriz, Exora, Saga also contributed to the rising numbers. This year, the company has brought the CKD version of X70 and is getting ready for the debut of highly-anticipated Proton X50. For 2020, the sales target has been set at a whopping 32% higher.

The X70 CKD comes with some notable mechanical changes and lower pricing. The 2020 iteration of long-standing Proton Saga features a spacious and quiet cabin and many technological and safety appointments.

Proton, predominantly reliant on its domestic market, has teamed up with Zhejiang Geely Holding Group as part of a long-term turnaround plan. The Chinese automaker Geely purchased a 49.9% stake in Proton Cars in 2017. The joint venture brought Proton X70 based on Geely Boyue as its first model.

    Musawwir Mac 17, 2020 for Proton X70 2020

    I was looking for a decent and spacious five-seater SUV that can conveniently accommodate five members of my family. After months of research, I decided to purchase Proton X70 and even after six months of usage, I did not face a single issue from the engine. We have covered many long trips, and the vehicle did not break down. The Read More 1944

    Suprima 2 was the first Proton car 1 bought after using honda, mazda & perodua.

    Keledek 660t Mac 08, 2020 for Proton Persona

    I've own Proton Persona for a month right now and hats off for Zigwheels for letting me compare with various cars. But, details only tell half the story. At first, I would opt for the Saga when I saw the price. When I saw the Persona, immediately I saw more bang for the buck even though theres RM14k-15k price difference. Read More 1365

    MAAROFF ARSHAD Feb 22, 2020 for Proton X50

    I'm using Honda HRV since 2015 now but i cant wait this car to be my next one. As an owner of urban suv, surely x50 exceeds my expectation regarding its technology. For me, i prefer the car that has so much control in driving, entertainment and comfort. My top dream is to have a car that affordable with semi Read More 1128
