    Proton Jan-Oct sales hit 115,366 units, exceed 2021

    KUALA LUMPUR (BERNAMA) – Proton Holdings Bhd has recorded its highest sales volume of 115,366 units in the January-October 2022 period, surpassing 114,708 units sold for the whole of 2021, boosted by local market success and its export division.

    In a statement yesterday, the national car maker said the 13,013 units (domestic and export) in October pushed sales to 115,366 units, making it the best sales result since 2014.

    This means year-to-date (YTD) sales increased by 33.6 per cent for the first 10 months of the year and the figure is expected to rise with two months remaining in 2022, it added.

    Compared with the rest of the market, Proton finished second in the sales table with an estimated market share of 21.1 per cent in October 2022, while YTD market share retreated slightly to 19.9 per cent.

    “Overall, total industry volume (TIV) for October is estimated to exceed 60,000 units for a third consecutive month as the Malaysian automotive market remains on target to break the record for total sales,” it said.

    Proton said the best-selling Proton model continues to be the Proton Saga, with another 5,262 units delivered in October, pushing its YTD total sales to 45,965 units.

    “This marks a 42-per-cent increase over the previous year and proves that the updated model launched on May 12 is even more popular compared to its predecessor,” it said.

    Deputy Chief Executive Officer Roslan Abdullah said Proton’s fourth consecutive year of volume growth coincides with the brand’s entry into the sports utility vehicle (SUV) market with the Proton X70.
