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. This will make Proton the sole national brand to grow sales and market share this year and give us a strong base heading into 2022 as we look to consolidate and improve our ranking both domestically and overseas,”

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.

Persona 1,534 units
Iriz 642 units
X50 4,010 units

Exora 434 units

The Iriz and Persona have been plagued by component supply issues which has limited their production volumes.

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.
