Proton Kicks off 1-Tank Challenge to Show the Capabilities of Their Products
Ever wondered how far you can go on just one tank of fuel? Malaysians face a vexing question; which cars offer the best combination of economical, practical, and safe features while being affordable as well. To answer this definitively, PROTON is calling on all public to search for the answers together.
From 17 July to 5 August 2018, the PROTON 1-Tank Adventure will be held across Malaysia together with media, key opinion leaders, celebrities and members of the public to experience the driving performance of selected Proton models as well as to explore Malaysia’s beautiful scenery, culture and delicious cuisine with just one tank of fuel.
A Fun Adventure across Malaysia
PROTON’s best-selling models namely the Persona, Saga and Iriz are set to venture to 5 different regions – Central, East Coast, East Malaysia, Southern and Northern. Winners from each region will then compete in the finals for the title of PROTON 1-Tank Adventure champion.
What makes the PROTON 1-Tank Adventure different from traditional fuel-saving competitions is that it invites participants to explore Malaysia under normal driving condition with just one tank of fuel, while experiencing PROTON cars. Therefore, it’s an adventure for all the senses.
Additionally, participants are required to drive standard cars and cannot remove any safety items (i.e. the spare tyre) in order to achieve their targeted fuel mileage. In fact, everyone is encouraged to drive freely with the air-conditioning on and under normal driving conditions to capture a real time fuel performance that will be verified by Malaysia Speed Festival (MSF), an independent 3rd party to add credibility to the judging.
