Proton Cars have just opened another booking channel for keen buyers of their upcoming Proton X70 SUV. From 17 October 2018 onwards, customers can now place a booking for an X70 through the company’s online booking platform. And to commemorate the launch of this platform, customers who wish to book an X70 from today till 19 October will only have to pay a booking fee of just RM99!
Customers who want to book a unit are required to fill in their personal details, preferred model and colour choice as well as the city and state where they wish to collect their car. Once the details are filled in, customers will be directed to a payment gateway where they will process the booking fee complete with a system-generated receipt.
An appointed Proton sales representative will then contact the customer within seven days to complete the booking process. As per standard operating procedure at a physical Proton outlet, the booking fee is fully refundable should the customer does not proceed with the purchase.
Chief Executive Officer of Proton Edar, Abdul Rashid Musa said: “After studying consumer preferences and market trends, PROTON believes the time is right to offer an online booking facility to our customers. The platform allows bookings to be made from anywhere a customer is as long as there is an Internet connection available. The Company has also decided to reward those who make a booking prior to the launch of the Proton X70. This will come in the form of special gifts for all early birds regardless of whether they booked their unit online or at our outlets.”
We know that the Proton X70 will be offered in four variants, all spotting the same 1.8-litre T-GDi turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and six-speed automatic that develops 183 hp and 285 Nm of torque. The innovative 8.0-inch touchscreen GKUI infotainment system with Voice Command that has been calibrated to recognise “Malaysian English” and indirect commands.
