Proton X50 to launch in Trinidad and Tobago

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago: The Proton X50 is set to be launched in Trinidad and Tobago soon, according to a video on Ansa Motors' Facebook page.

Ansa Motors, a subsidiary of Ansa McAL Group - one of the Caribbean’s largest conglomerates, is the authorised dealership for various automotive brands in the island country.

As standard, the X50 is powered by a 1.5-litre (1,477cc) three-cylinder multi-port turbocharged engine producing 150PS at 5,500rpm and 226Nm of torque from 1,500 to 4,000rpm.

The range-topping 1.5 TGDI Flagship variant has a more powerful 1.5-litre turbocharged direct-injected engine that outputs 177PS at 5,500rpm and 255Nm of torque from 1,500 to 4,000rpm.

It has a 45-litre fuel tank, and power is managed by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Even after more than 100,000 units have been produced and sold since the launch of the B-segment SUV in October 2020, demand for the Proton X50 remains strong with 31,829 units sold in Malaysia and export markets in 2023.

In late 2023, Proton international sales director Steven Xu had said the company's efforts to explore opportunities in overseas markets are continuing with groundwork underway in Fiji, Ghana, Trinidad and Tobago, and Iraq, among others.

He explained that overseas markets help to uplift Proton’s brand image and the company views it as an investment to take advantage of improved market conditions in the future.
