Malaysian auto maker Proton has set its eyes on the Indian auto market. The company, PeRusahaan OTOmobil Nasional or Proton Motors Ltd, intends to make a foray in the Indian market with its super mini car Savvy. Its other models Saga and Persona are also slated for subsequent launches in the country. Proton is currently looking for a joint venture partner in India to manufacture and market its cars in India.
“We will be launching new programmes regionally, specifically in ASEAN, China, India and the Middle East. Proton will leave no stone unturned in our vision to strengthen our brand equity within the local and regional arena,” stated an official statement from Proton.
Proton is Malaysia’s largest car company and is presently selling its cars in China, Iran, Pakistan, UK and Australia. Its models are versatile and reliable four-door family vehicles, two-door hatchbacks for the young-at-heart, luxurious and stylish executive sedans, as well as the world-renowned sports cars from Lotus.
