We all knew this was bound to happen, the craze also took place when the other national car maker announced their new car last year, but it’s quite something to see, especially when prices have yet to be announced.
“We are thankful to all Malaysians for the support they have given to PROTON since we started accepting bookings for the Proton X70. We were unsure how customers would react to this new method to book a car but its success points to how cars might be sold in the future.
“Now we ask for a little bit more patience from everybody as we make the final preparations for the launch of the Proton X70. This will be the first Proton SUV as well as the first car to be jointly developed by PROTON and Geely. We are working hard to ensure it meets the expectations of buyers and are also investing heavily in our outlets and dealerships so that we have the necessary sales and after sales resources to support such an important product,” said Chief Executive Officer of PROTON, Dr Li Chunrong.
A couple weeks back, Proton announced initial specifications for the X70, with four different variants confirmed. There was also a preview on its intuitive infotainment system and more importantly, on what it’s like to drive – something you’d seriously want to hear about.
