All PROTON vehicles come with at least one feature to give you improved cabin air quality. Although the car cabin is isolated from the outside environment, the quality of air inside can still be affected by air from the outside.
With that in mind, PROTON has equipped its entire range i.e. Persona, Iriz, Exora, Saga, X50 and X70 with N95 cabin filters as part of the air-conditioning system.
The biggest difference between an N95 cabin filter and the average dust and pollen filter is the efficiency of filtration. An N95 cabin filter can remove up to 95% of particulates and contaminants that are larger than 0.3µm (microns) and 98% of PM2.5 dust particulates. Thus it helps create an efficient air purifier to filter out smoke particulates, dust, bacteria and other pollutants, ensuring that the air in the cabin remains clean.
In short, the N95 cabin filter can filter out bacteria, and over 80% of allergens such as mites, pollen, aphids, that could enter the car due to opening of doors & windows.
PROTON Intelligent Air Purification System (P-IAPS)
An additional feature found in the Proton X70 is the PROTON Intelligent Air Purification System. P-IAPS is an air filtration system that works with the N95 filter to provide you with a cleaner breathing environment. By combining the air purifier system with the N95 Cabin Filter, the P-IAPS acts as a barrier against contaminated air making its way into the cabin, offering a high level of protection against airborne pollutants for a cleaner and healthier environment.
The P-IAPS uses a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter that removes 99.97% of particles larger than 0.3 microns while its activated carbon removes odours, formaldehyde and adsorbs and purifies smoke particulates. Further, the ioniser discharges negative ions to cleanse the air.
If you currently own a Proton, you can also ask your service centre for an N95 Cabin Filter for your vehicle.
