Proton has recorded a rise in sales volume with total sales of 47,843 units for the first four-months of the year.
The national car manufacturer has sold 15,017 units in April to kick off the second quarter of the year. It also recorded an increase in sale volume from March to April by 0.18 percent equivalent to an estimated market share of 26.7 percent.
This performance sees the evergreen Proton Saga return to the top of the national sales chart with 5,472 units sold in April and the demand remains healthy.
Meanwhile, Proton’s SUV models continue to set strong sales numbers with 2101 units of Proton X70 delivered in April whereas the newest model, Proton X50 recorded 3,583 deliveries.
Additionally, the Proton Exora continued to rule the C-segment MPV class while Proton Iriz sales received a boost from strong demand for the R3 Limited Edition model that allowed it to have its best sales month since 2019.
Roslan Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer, Proton Edar, commented, “April was a good month for the automotive industry and aside from Proton, several other brands also had their best month of the year so far.”
“The total industry volume (TIV) is estimated to be over 56,000 units as all brands are trying to fulfill sales orders before the expiry of PENJANA sales tax incentives at the end of June,” he said.
Proton has also recently held a ground-breaking ceremony for a new stamping plant at its Tanjung Malim factory costing RM200 million to support larger stamp pieces of body panels.
