DRB Hicom: Proton received 11,310 units booking for Proton Preve model since its launch two months ago
In just two months after launch, Proton Prevé has commanded a total booking of 11,310 units, making it the most popular 1.6-litre sedan in the market.
"With more than 10,000 Prevé booked to date, and with the numbers increasing every day, it has quickly established itself as the consumer's preferred choice of compact sedan," said Proton Holdings Bhd Executive Chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Khamil Jamil.
"This is a very positive sign for us and further proof that Proton can engineer and manufacture world class products," he said.
A total of almost 1,000 units were booked by eager customers as early as March, a month before the launch while another 4,893 units were booked in the month of April, he said.
"It was a vehicle that was eagerly anticipated by the market and continues to be well received, not only because it is affordable and offers owners a low cost of ownership, but excels in the terms of styling, performance, safety and equipment level," Mohd Khamil said.
The Prevé was officially launched on April 16 and is offered in three variants. The Premium with 1.6 charged fuel efficiency or CFE (turbocharged) engine mated to Proton's 7-speed ProTronic CVT, and two Executive variants utilising the 6-speed CVT transmission, and 5-speed manual transmission – both coupled with the IAFM+ engine.
The all-new Proton Prevé can be viewed and test driven at all authorised Proton showrooms nationwide. -- Bernama
