PETALING JAYA: Proton Holdings Bhd’s vehicle sales in November came in at 12,296 units, which brought year-to-date (YTD) sales to 141,900 units.

“Proton has already surpassed the sales volume of the entire previous year, reaching 141,900 units compared to last year's 141,432 units. A commendable 12% growth year-on-year brings the market share to a steady 19.7%,” the national carmaker said in a statement.

The Proton S70, which was launched on Nov 28, has made a remarkable impact with a threefold increase in bookings following its launch and price announcement.

“The surge in bookings, now surpassing 900 per week, speaks volumes about the model's popularity and its ability to meet the demands of the Malaysian market.

“Total bookings for the S70 have already exceeded 3,000 units, marking a successful entry that aligns seamlessly with the needs and preferences of Malaysians,” Proton said.
