Proton estimates their domestic market share to stand at 24.5% while YTD market share has grown by 1.9%, it currently sits at 22.8%.
Roslan Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer, Proton Edar adds, “November was a good sales month for Proton though overall industry numbers continue to be limited by supply and not demand.

The evergreen Proton Saga continues to dominate the sales charts with 5,666 units were sold, its best month since December 2020, followed by the Proton X50 with 4,010 units, surpassing the 4,000 unit mark for the first time.

Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
