SUBANG JAYA: Bookings placed for the 2019 Proton Saga, which was launched on 6 August, have now exceeded 10,000 units.
Over 1,000 of bookings came via Proton's online booking platform where customers can book a unit for just RM9.99.
Proton has extended the closing date for online bookings to 17 September.
“Judging from the bookings received, the 2019 Saga is extremely popular with our customers who are attracted to the revised styling, upgraded components and new touchscreen infotainment system," said Dr Li Chunrong, CEO of Proton.
Proton also saw higher sales growth after registering 9,127 units for August 2019.
Total sales as at the end of August now stand at 61,396 units.
This means Proton is on track to beat 2018's sales of 64,744 units.
"Proton has posted the best sales growth for any top five brand this year and although Malaysia’s Total Industry Volume (TIV) has shrunk by 5.8%, our 36% growth in sales shows we are on the right track," said Li.
