With 14,187 units sold in November, Proton has again breached the 100,000-unit sales barrier for a third year in succession. In the eleven months of 2021, the national car company is proud to announce the sales achievement of 100,566 units, just over 9,000 units shy of the full year of 2020.
While it is pretty much the same monthly volumes for all models, the Proton X50 again sees record sales, moving 4,010 units after another strong month in October. Although both models are at the top of Proton’s pricing ladder, the total sales of the X50 and X70 combined in 2021 have just passed the sales of the Proton Saga.
Thanks to its dealers as well as suppliers, Proton delivered 24,466 units of X50 and 14,761 of X70 models, representing 39% of 2021 sales, while the Saga is just slightly behind at 37,972 units or 37.8%. Similar to the Proton X50, the Proton Saga also enjoyed a record month for 2021 in November with sales of 5,666 units, re-taking the crown of the best-selling model in Malaysia as well as the A-segment sedan.
The rest of Proton’s model range performed according to expectations. The Proton Exora enjoyed a fourth consecutive month of growth and continued to dominate the C-segment MPV market with 434 units sold. Component supply issues continue to plague the 2022 Proton Iriz and Persona limiting their production volumes, but both achieved 642 and 1,534 units respectively.
“November was a good sales month for Proton though overall industry numbers continue to be limited by supply and not demand. Crossing over the 100,000-unit threshold with a month to go is a highpoint for us after another year disrupted by Covid-19,” said Proton Edar, CEO, Roslan Abdullah.
The company also sees this momentum as a strong base heading into 2022 to consolidate and improve its ranking both locally as well as internationally.
