Better Health Thanks to Better Air Quality in the 2020 Proton X70

Following the announcement to relax the Movement Control Order (MCO) from 4th May, many of us will be travelling to and from work. It goes without saying that we’d be spending several hours daily for the commute. If you’re caught in a traffic jam, exhaust fumes from other vehicles and dust around you will find their way into your cabin.

Having clean air in your vehicle is important, but how do you prevent contaminants from making its way into your vehicle? With this in mind, PROTON has gone a step further by introducing the N95 Cabin Filter in the 2020 Proton X70 that helps to keep pollutants out of the vehicle. Read on to find out how the N95 Cabin Filter differs from the average dust and pollen filter.

A matter of filtration

The N95 Cabin Filter as the name suggests, can remove 95% of particles that are larger than 0.3µm (microns). Additionally, it can remove 98% of PM2.5 dust particulates, which is important to promote respiratory health. In simple terms, the N95 Cabin Filter is more efficient than the average dust and pollen filter, and thus able to remove more contaminants

Apart from effectively filtering smoke particulates, dust and bacteria; it can help to promote an allergy-free environment by reducing allergens from pets, aphids and pollen. Now, everyone can breathe easy inside the 2020 Proton X70 equipped with the N95 Cabin Filter.

Integrated for higher level of protection

For those who are curious about how and where this filter is installed, the N95 Cabin Filter is an integral part of the air-conditioning system. It can function in both fresh and recirculation modes, as long as the blower fan speed is switched on.

To sum things up, the N95 Cabin Filter offers a higher level of protection against airborne contaminants. It’s able to provide you and your passengers with clean air, which is one step ahead in staying healthy and strong in uncertain times like these. That being said, it is unable to kill viruses that linger on surfaces, so it’s best to keep those hands sanitised!

Working together for the safety of the nation

As PROTON does their best for the safety of their customers not only through the air they breathe in the cabin environment, PROTON has also started producing face shields at PROTON’s headquarters in Shah Alam for medical frontliners as the Company reinforces its commitment to help fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Malaysia.

The Company has received contributions from its vendor community who are eager to get involved. One such contributor is Pos Logistics Sdn Bhd, one of the biggest logistics service providers in Malaysia. They contributed over 2,000 large carton boxes that will be used to pack the face shields and make it easier to transport them.

Automotive component supplier, HICOM-Teck See Manufacturing Malaysia Sdn Bhd, is another vendor supporting this initiative. They have contributed 1500kg of polypropylene, one of the main components in a car bumper, which will be used to produce the frame of the face shields.

The original design for the face shield was contributed by Universiti Teknologi MARA (UITM). The designers at PROTON Design then developed the frame based on feedback from end users and also added the slogan STAY STRONG! We will get through this!

Not forgetting the 50 staff members who volunteered their services, work on an assembly line to measure and cut the various components required before assembling the final product. Up to 3,000 units can be produced in a single day, and the Company is expected to take approximately 20 days to produce the 60,000 units it has committed to deliver.

PROTON is committed to doing its best in these trying times by constantly offering better products, such as the 2020 Proton X70, which is undoubtedly an SUV that makes our journey comfortable and safe. For further information, please visit https://www.proton.com/en/find-a-car/protonx70.
