Proton sells 4,091 cars May 2018

14th June, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: National carmaker, Proton has announced that it sold 4,091 cars in the month of May, which represents an increase of 2.3 per cent from the 3,999 units shifted in April, this year.

According to the company, the increase in sales was largely due to the government’s decision to set the Good and Services Tax (GST) rate at 0 per cent from June 1 onwards.

“The result was also supported by Proton’s Kosong-kosong promotion,” said CEO of Proton Edar, Abdul Rashid Musa.

The Saga and Persona were the most popular models among its customers, accounting for 70 per cent of total sales for the month.

Abdul added that they recorded an unofficial 8.8 per cent market share on the back of the sales figure.

“Proton continuously strives to provide the best deals for its customers as we realised that having good products alone is not enough if there are no additional attractions to pull customers into our showroom.

“Hence, we had concurrently put in place all the right measures and efforts for total quality improvement of our products, attractive offers for ease of car ownership and in the pipeline, the dealers upgrade of 3S and 4S centres which will prepare us to face the challenging market more positively.”

Meanwhile, for the month of June, Proton has announced its Greatest Saga Raya Deal where customers can enjoy zero-rated GST pricing as well as cash rebates on selected Proton models.

In addition to this, Proton is also offering a free 20-point inspection at all of its authorised outlets nationwide (until June 15). – By Vesta Vanessa Jsol
