Fact Sheet: PROTON
On July 9, 1985, the first Proton rolled off the assembly line. A year later, Proton had already captured 60% of the Malaysian domestic passenger vehicle market when the Proton Saga was exported to the UK. This car went on to win awards at the prestigious British International Motor Show for three consecutive years.
By 1992, Proton was ready to become a public listed company. The name was changed to Perusahaan Otomobil Nasional Berhad.
Two new models were quickly introduced - the Wira (Persona) in 1993 followed by the very successful Satria in 1994.
The Perdana, together with the Putra Coupe, have continued the successful expansion of the range.
The company is now exporting to 49 countries including Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, Saudi Arabia, Africa, Australia and the Asia Pacific. It has taken just 14 years for Proton to gain significant international presence.
Built and designed in Malaysia
Proton has always been committed to manufacturing cars locally which are recognised internationally.
The use of automation and robotics in the manufacturing process has contributed to increased cost-efficiency, reliability and quality. Research and Development is considered to be Proton's most important activity, and innovation is fundamental to the company's development.
