Proton compact car set for launch on Sept 25

SHAH ALAM, Sept 9 (Bernama) -- The much-awaited Proton Compact Car (PCC), developed at the cost of RM500 million over the past four years, is set for launch on Sept 25 in Tanjung Malim.
Powered by a new engine, the 23th Proton model was built on a new platform at the Tanjung Malim plant, Proton Holdings Bhd Chief Executive Officer Datuk Abdul Harith Abdullah said.
He said model would be named during the official launch of the car.
The car is open for booking by end of this week and the delivery will start from November, he said at the PCC's special media preview here today.
Abdul Halim said in terms of pricing, it would go head on with top variants in the B segment.
"It is a game changer since we have not launch any car for quite sometime and the segment that we are going in is also a popular and most affordable segment in the Malaysian market.
"The new model is so well designed with a lot of efforts put into perfecting the engineering and designing of the car. I would say this is the best car you could find in the B segment market," he said.
The PCC will come in three variants, namely executive, premium and standard, with the engine capacity of 1300cc and 1600cc.
Abdul Harith said it was not correct to dub the PCC as a global small car as it is categorised in the B segment, instead it should be called the Proton Compact Car.
"Since it is a global car, once the local market is settled, we will start exploring the overseas market," he said.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
