Yes, it’s Potong Harga time again!

PROTON POTONG HARGA! Rebates for ALL models!

I invented the nickname PROTON PRHONDA.

When I made up this name, it was tongue in cheek, a play on word. Now it has become a Google term.

Google Proton Prhonda, and you will come up with several entries, including the one below!

Negri Sembilan swaps Perdana for Honda Accords

SEREMBAN: The Negri Sembilan government has replaced its fleet of ageing Proton Perdana with Honda Accords for its state executive councilors.

The state government has acquired 13 vehicles at a cost of RM110, 000 to replace the Perdanas, which were already more than a decade old.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said on Wednesday, he would however continue to use his personal vehicle as he has been doing so since assuming the post in 2004.

The new version of the Proton Perdana comes in two variants, the Perdana 2.0 L and 2.4 L, with improved security features and comfort.

Two special edition units of the car were brought out for Najib and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

At the event, Najib received his official car bearing the registration number W 11 N.

Later, at a press conference, Mohd Khamil said Proton Holdings Berhad, a wholly-owned subsidiary of DRB-Hicom, had delivered the first batch of 200 units to the Government.

He said a total of 3,000 units would be delivered on a staggered basis over the space of two years to replace the existing fleet of Proton Perdanas.

“For the moment, the new Proton Perdana will be used only as the official car of the government. It will not be sold to the public.

Proton 5-year plans good to go

The national carmaker will roll out Phase 1 of the Perdana replacement model for government use in December 2013 under the plans, Lukman noted.

Phase 2 of the Perdana replacement model, which targets the mass market, will only be rolled out within two years.

Proton, via its strategic collaboration with Honda Motor Co, will start producing an initial 3,000 units of the new Perdana by next month.

Isn’t it exciting, a marriage of Proton and Honda? (A marriage of convenience?)

Proton & Honda collaborate???

Date : 1 July 2013

Subject : Proton & Honda collaborate???

..the Star reported that Proton is expected to reveal a series of announcements in the next 12 months, including updates on the collaboration with Honda and the launch of new models…the report touches on a Perdana replacement model (PRM). The PRM will be a fruit of the Proton-Honda collaboration agreement that came to surface last October.

The daily’s unidentified source said that Proton has plans to use the Honda Accord chassis as the basis for PRM, but the Proton model would look different. There was no mention whether the Accord in question is the new one recently launched in Thailand or the outgoing Accord currently on sale here.

“The PRM, though based on the Accord, would still entail cosmetic changes, and the engine could be based on the 2.0 litre Petronas engines Proton bought last year,” he said.

Government opts for new Perdana model

PETALING JAYA: The Federal Government has opted for the Perdana Replacement Model (PRM), reversing a plan to replace its ageing fleet of Proton Perdana Executive cars with the Honda Accord.

Sources said Proton had been given the green light to continue with its plans for the PRM, which is expected to be unveiled by December.

It is understood that the PRM would be based on the Honda Accord’s chassis and Proton would do a rebadging exercise including cosmetic and specification changes, similar to the previous changes to the Proton Inspira, which is essentially a Mitsubishi Lancer.

However, the sources said Proton had other plans with a Phase 2 that entails a complete change of outlook and engine to be unveiled in 2015.

Proton has yet to respond to queries from The Star as at press time.

Government opts for new Perdana model

Proton has informed the National Economic Advisory Council  and Najib that it has a new model which could be used for the official government fleet. Delivery? As early as next January!

Najib bows to Proton pressure?

K Kabilan | September 17, 2013

High-placed sources claim government backtracks on decision to use Honda Accords after Proton forces its way in by promising new executive models, deliverable in the next three months.

KUALA LUMPUR: Proton has emerged as a major winner after forcing the government to make a last minute U-turn to allow the national carmaker to continue supplying official vehicles to the federal government to replace the aging Proton Perdana Executive and Inspira series.

The government had originally agreed in July this year to replace the Perdana Executive and Inspira fleet with the Honda Accord series.

Honda Accord was picked following Proton’s inability to come up with a model to replace the out-of-production Perdana series. Letters to that effect had been sent out to all government agencies and ministers. In fact, Honda has been notified of the immediate purchase of 350 Accords – the 2013 models which were launched early this month.

However on Monday, Sept 9, Proton managed to convince Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to allow Proton to continue supplying its models to the federal government. The speed in which this decision was made has baffled Putrajaya officials and industry players.

Free Malaysia Today

Questions persist on Proton’s ability

Although Proton has managed to keep its hold to supply the government vehicles, questions still remain on its ability to deliver as promised.

“Proton has failed to introduce a proper replacement model for the Perdana series all these years. And now it has promised the government to deliver a new model by the beginning of next year.

“What is of concern is, how can they come up with a model so quickly when six months ago they were clueless, to the extent of allowing the government to look at Honda?”

“Now, suddenly their R&D work is complete, and they have a prototype. Even then, can they start their manufacturing line quick enough to supply the vehicles to the government over the next four years?,” asked an industry expert.

“What about doing the roadworthiness tests and other inspections on the new model? Do they have the time for this?”

He also asked if Proton had its own engines to fit the models, or if they would be tapping into someone else’s product.

“Would the final product be a unit which, say, belongs to Honda, an engine from someone else, but is passed off as a Proton model?”

PROTON IN THE AUSTRALIAN MARKET

Proton banks on new models

Date
September 4, 2013
Toby Hagon

National Motoring Editor

The new models are designed to turn around a sales slide and boost Proton sales to at least the 2000-odd unit annual level they have hovered at for years. That would give the brand a modest 0.02 per cent share of the highly-competitive Australian market.

Proton is banking on a new hatchback, a seven-seat people mover and a new model variant to reinvigorate floundering sales as it embarks on another ambitious sales push.

Key to the hopes of the Malaysian brand – which is this year on track for its worst full-year sales result since arriving in Australia in 1995 – is the Exora people mover, which will sell for $25,990 drive-away, making it the most affordable seven-seater on the market.

Proton will also get the Suprima S, which is the hatchback version of the Preve small sedan that’s been on sale here since 2012.

Rounding out the new arrivals – all due by the end of 2013 – is a better equipped Preve GXR, bringing things such as leather trim and rain-sensing wipers.

All three will be powered by a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo producing 103kW of power and 205Nm of torque. As it has in the past, Proton will also talk up the Lotus-tuned suspension tweaks made by the iconic British sports car maker that is also owned by DRB Hicom.
