Great news for residents of Sabah where you all now able to trade in your 10 years or more old cars to Proton and get RM5000 discount to buy new Proton. Below are the details from Bernama.
PROTON XCHANGE PROGRAM AVAILABLE IN SABAH – BUY NEW PROTON TRADE IN OLD CARS
Proton Holdings Bhd will extend to its customers in Sabah and Sarawak, the offer under the XChange programme, where customers will get a discount valued at RM5,000 when they exchange their old cars to buy new Proton cars.
The offer will be effective immediately and will be available at all Proton authorised sales outlets and dealers operated by Proton’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Proton Edar Sdn Bhd as well as Edaran Otomobil Nasional Bhd (EON), the national car maker said in a statement here Monday.
Proton Edar’s chief executive officer Mohamad Shukor Ibrahim said the scheme will now benefit everyone and will not be confined to only customers in Peninsular Malaysia.
“We have received an overwhelming support from our customers in the two states since the government’s announcement last week and we believe that this offer could help customers in the two states in their decision to buy Proton cars,” he said.
Proton introduced the XChange programme in late 2007. The scheme is similar to the scrapping scheme announced by the government last week which allows car owners to exchange their at least 10-year old registered cars in return for a discount of RM5,000 to buy any Proton car.
The programme is an important tool in the automotive “ecosystem” where it could help the industry to dispose old cars more efficiently and responsibly whilst protecting the environment from dangerous and hazardous waste.
So far, Proton has issued nearly 2,700 vouchers under the programme.
