Proton Sold 2 Times More Cars in Nov ’19 vs Nov ’18

What a year it has been for the national carmaker. This month alone, the company sold 9,643 vehicles. That’s twice as many cars versus the same period in 2018. Cumulatively, Proton has sold some 89,476 vehicles in 2019 so far, which is a 50.1% growth in sales versus where they were a year ago

Even more impressive considering the 3-month tax break we had last year when most cars had a price cut of about 6%. That being said, many of the refreshed and new models this year have been introduced at lower price points and with more value-for-money. This includes the new Saga, Iriz, Persona, and Exora.
