The Star Malaysia - StarBiz - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Perusa­haan Oto­mo­bil Na­sional Sdn Bhd (Pro­ton) has re­ceived 170 ap­pli­ca­tions for the 3S/4S up­grade from ex­ist­ing deal­ers and new in­vestors within three months, of which 66 ap­pli­ca­tions were duly eval­u­ated and ap­proved.

Pro­ton said in a state­ment that the deal­ers net­work up­grad­ing ex­er­cise was part of its ini­tia­tive to en­sure a suc­cess­ful syn­ergy, fol­low­ing the ac­qui­si­tion of 49.9% of its shares by China’s Zhe­jiang Geely Hold­ings Group.

“The adop­tion of Geely’s prod­uct qual­ity au­dit scor­ing sys­tem – an adap­ta­tion of the sys­tem used by Volvo Cars – has helped iden­tify is­sues and re­sulted in a strength­en­ing of au­dit scores across all models.

“More ini­tia­tives are ex­pected this year as Pro­ton gears to­wards build­ing cars that match the qual­ity of premium car man­u­fac­tur­ers,” it said.

Mean­while, for the month of April, Pro­ton said it is of­fer­ing 0% fi­nanc­ing for the first year to buy­ers of Pro­ton Iriz (ex­ec­u­tive and premium vari­ants), Pro­ton Er­tiga (all vari­ants) and Pro­ton Ex­ora (all vari­ants), who sign up for five-year loan tenures with Hong Leong Bank.

For Pro­ton Saga and Per­sona (premium CVT only) pur­chases, it said the buy­ers would get a free body kit for book­ings made through­out the month of April.

It said re­bates were also avail­able for other models in the Pro­ton range as well as gen­er­ous in­cen­tives for the re­main­ing car stocks pro­duced in 2017. — Ber­nama
