Proton is on a roll as they follow their sales success in May 2020 with yet another healthy number in June 2020. Other than that, the Proton Saga also broke its own monthly sale record with the highest numbers sold since August 2014.
Proton recorded 9,623 units sold in June 2020. This number is the second-highest the brand recorded in 2020 and a growth of 69.5 percent over May 2020.
Bear in mind that June is also the first full month that Proton has been operating since the Movement Control Order. Hence the massive growth over the previous month.
Like their closest competitor, Proton’s sales number in June 2020 also exceeds the number they posted in 2019 of the same month by 26.3 percent. Proton pushed out only 7,615 units back in June 2019, that’s over 2,000 units less than June 2020.
The Proton Saga, in particular, posted its best sales performance in 70 months. The Saga’s June sales figure takes up almost half the official sales number at 4,447 units.
Previously, the Proton Saga’s best sales figure was posted in October 2019 at 4,275 units. This number is also the highest since August 2014. Last month, the Saga even dethroned the Perodua Bezza as the best-selling A-segment sedan in Malaysia.
The Proton Persona also enjoyed yet another month of good sales, as the model enjoyed a second consecutive month on top of the B-segment sedan sales chart.
Similarly, arch-rival Perodua also posted a sales number that far surpassed their June 2019 number. In June 2020, Perodua sold 21,250 cars, more than 5,000 units sold than 2019 of the same year.
With a Year-To-Date (YTD) market share figure of 21.2 percent, Proton’s results for the first half of 2020 show a 6.5 percent increase against the same time period last year.
The overall volume gap versus 2019 has also shrunk to just 14.6 percent, a remarkable achievement that is nearly three times better than their arch-rival.
