The Proton X70 is now one of the official vehicles for Malaysia’s Public Sector Super Scale (JUSA) officers. A unit of this award-winning SUV was recently delivered to the Ministry of Finance (MoF) for Dato’ Shahrol Anuwar Sarman, Statutory Bodies Division Secretary for the Strategic Management Division. Over 400 units of the X70, out of the over 500 confirmed orders, have already been delivered to the government.
“The Proton X70 has been an invaluable contributor to PROTON’s success in 2019 so we are proud it now plays a formal role for the public services sector. This proves its suitability for a number of tasks including representing various ministries at local and international level events. We are also therefore expecting to receive more orders for the Proton X70 from various government departments in 2020,” said Dr Li Chunrong, Chief Executive Officer of PROTON.
The decision by the Malaysia government and SPANCO to order the Proton X70 for its fleet is the second major announcement involving the SUV and the Malaysian government. Earlier in December, it was announced that a fleet of Proton X70s will be used to support the year-long Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) 2020 forum.
“PROTON will continue to work closely with service providers such as SPANCO to ensure we can support the need for official vehicles by public sector agencies and government departments. As a Malaysian automotive brand, we want to continue to show our support for the country and play a role in nation building,” added Dr Li Chunrong.
