At the start of 2020, Proton continues to show strong performance after a strong performance in the year 2019. January sees that Proton manages to register a total of 8,506 new cars, translated to a 20.2% increase compare to the same period last year. This also marks Proton’s most successful January sales in 4 years. The sales also bring the market shares to 19.5%, which is a 4.5% increase from the same period of last year.
Despite the short month due to the Chinese New Year holidays, the company performed well within expectations as it continued to hold its No. 2 position. “This is a great start to the year on the back of our performance in 2019. January is always a tough month but we still managed to have our best showing in 4 years”, said PROTON CEO, Dr. Li Chunrong.
This is how Proton perform breaking down into models:
Proton X70 – 1,367units
Proton Saga – 3,871 units
Proton Persona – 2,109 units
Proton Iriz – 785 units
Proton Exora – 374 units
“Clearly our customers see the value in our much improved product line. This is especially for the Saga, Persona, Iriz and Exora which were all launched last year. We believe that our strong emphasis on technology, safety and quality is what is driving sales” said Li. “However, we will not rest on our laurels and will continue to push the envelope on raising standards both in quality and service”, he added.
