KUALA LUMPUR, July 26 2018 : Proton Holdings Bhd’s Proton 1-Tank Adventure for the central region ended successfully on July 18, 2018 with a total of 36 participants in 18 cars covering a total distance of 640 kilometres on just one tank of fuel.

Participants including media practitioners, celebrities, key opinion leaders and members of the public drove either a Proton Saga 1.3 continuously variable transmission (CVT), Persona 1.6 CVT or Iriz 1.3 CVT from the Proton Centre of Excellence in Shah Alam to Ipoh and back to Setia Gemilang Auto, Shah Alam on just one tank of fuel without any specific driving restrictions.

The journey began on a highway where participants drove at a speed of between 80km/h and 100km/h before driving 60km/h to 80km/h on alternative roads with traffic, roadworks, lorries and road conditions that were similar to daily driving conditions, the national carmaker said in a statement.

The last activity before the finishing line was the Dynamic Driving Experience where participants got a first-hand experience of the exhilarating ride and handling of PROTON vehicles as well as the five-Star ASEAN NCAP active safety features in the Persona and Iriz, such as the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control (TC) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). – Bernama
