KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 10): National carmaker Proton Holdings Bhd has launched its best-selling sport utility vehicle (SUV), the 2020 Proton X70, in Brunei.
In a statement today, Proton said the 2020 X70 was launched there on Sept 6, adding that Brunei is the first export market for the Proton X70 and now is also the first export market for the upgraded Malaysian-made model from Tanjung Malim.
It said as with its predecessor, the 2020 Proton X70 will be made available as three different variants (Standard, Executive and Premium X) and also be sold with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
The firm said the 2020 Proton X70 has been a popular choice amongst Malaysia SUV buyers since its launch in February this year.
It said some 12,732 units have been delivered up to end-August 2020, which accounts for 25.9% of the total Malaysian SUV market.
Proton Edar chief executive officer Roslan Abdullah said exports will play an increasingly important role in growing Proton’s sales.
“With its combination of innovative features and comprehensive list of safety equipment, we believe the X70 will gain support from car buyers not only in Brunei, where it has already attracted a strong following, but also wherever it is sold around the world,” he said.
