PROTON TO LAUNCH REPLACEMENT MODEL FOR WAJA BEFORE YEAR-END.
SHAH ALAM, July 15 — Proton Holdings Bhd expects to launch a new sedan model before the end of this year to replace the Waja.
Group managing director Datuk Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir said production of the new model would be undertaken at its plant in Shah Alam.
“All the preparations have been done. We hope to launch it in the last quarter of this year,” he told reporters after launching the improved Exora model here on Thursday.
“We are working with other original equipment manufacturers,” he said.
According to market talks, the new model will display a copy of version Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 GT but use the engine with a capacity of slightly smaller 1.8-litre.
It is believed that the Mitsubishi feature in Proton is the result of development engineering cooperation between Proton and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, which is also a shareholder.
