The Island Car Company Sdn Bhd is planning to produce a light car here soon.
The four-seater, to be named “Helang“, can be used to take tourists around the resort island, the company’s operation director Richard Boggon told Bernama.
Helang is the Malay word for eagle.
He said the car would be using several Perodua Kancil components, including the 660cc engine while the body would be made of fibre glass.
“For a start, we plan to produce 100 units of the Helang car at the company’s workshop here,” he said.
He said the company had yet to decide on the price.
Boggon gave the assurance that the car would be comfortable, economical, and equipped with safety features.
“The company plans to set up a manufacturing plant here and is now identifying a suitable site,” he said.
Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad rode the car’s prototype at the Harbour Park here yesterday.
