Last month, Proton’s car sales saw a 2.3% increase with 4,091 units sold compared to 3,999 in the month of April. The improved sales numbers also helped Proton record an unofficial 8.8% market share.
The main drivers behind this positive feat are the Persona and the Saga – currently two of Proton’s most popular models. The increase in sales is also credited to the Government’s recent zero-rated GST exercise.
“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,” said PROTON Edar Sdn Bhd, Chief Executive Officer, Abdul Rashid Musa.
Hence, we have 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,” he added.
In conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations, Proton is also carrying out a Duit Raya promotion; where prices for the Saga starts from below RM 30,000 for the 1.3-litre Standard Manual variant. There will also be savings of up to RM4,000 for Iriz and Ertiga and up to RM3,000 for Persona, on top of 0% GST.
