KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 28 2018 : The new Proton X70 SUV has received 10,000 bookings since the pre-launch booking opened on Sept 8.
Proton Holdings Bhd in a statement yesterday said of this number, nearly 2,000 booking were made online, thus confirming the company had made the correct decision to develop and launch the platform.
According to Chief Executive Officer Dr Li Chunrong, the company was working hard to ensure the X70 met the expectations of buyers, while investing heavily in outlets and dealerships, to have the necessary sales and after sales resources to support such an important product.
The car is the first Proton SUV, as well as the first to be jointly developed by Proton and Geely.
Powered by a 1.8-litre turbo gasoline direct injection engine, the X70 will also offer advanced safety features, including autonomous emergency braking, front collision warning, a blind spot information system, lane departure warning, as well as an intelligent high-beam control.
Meanwhile, Proton in the statement also said it had exceeded the 3S/4S outlet submission approval target of 109, and that more applications to open such outlets were still being received. – Bernama
