Sell My Proton
Proton is a Malyasia car manufacturer and is one of the youngest carmakers in the world. Founded in 1983, Proton was conceived by former Malaysia Prime Minister Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad with the aim of creating jobs and improving the country's economy. Its headquarters is in Shah Alam, Selangor. The company, previously owned by the Government of Malaysia, made a successful approach to Mitsubishi which resulted in a partnership and the subsequent production of the first Malaysian car. Based almost entirely on Mitsubishi's Lancer Fiore – a 1.3 litre four-door saloon – the first car to be launched by Proton was the Proton Saga in 1985. The vehicle was a huge success, so much so that Proton struggled to cope with demand, with it by 1986, accounting for more than 60 per cent of the domestic market share in Malaysia. Proton later released a hatchback version of the Saga called the Proton Saga Aeroback but that included a more powerful 1.5L Mitsubishi 4G15 engine. It was not until 1989 that the Proton was seen on UK roads. In 1992, the Proton Saga Iswara was introduced which became widely used as a taxi in Malaysia. The Proton Wira and Wira Aeroback were next launched in the mid-Nineties with many more models to follow – all sourced from Mitsubishi.
Proton became so profitable it was able to acquire Lotus in 1986 and it has remained owners ever since, taking over 100 per cent ownership in 2003. The launch of the popular Proton Satria GTi is considered to be largely because of the contribution Lotus made to the car. The engine, however, was again from Mitsubishi – a 1.8 litre 138 bhp. By 2000, Proton was able to stand firmly on its feet and its Proton Waja became the first non-Mitsubishi-sourced car. The Waja was not received well, however, by customers and it is said to have helped Malaysia car manufacturer rival, Perodua, get a foothold in the market. But the release of the Proton Persona saloon and second generation Proton Saga did mark a comeback in the carmaker's fortunes during the Noughties. Its first 7-seater MPV, the Exora, also proved a hit. Proton became partners with Mitsubishi again in 2008 and began selling re-badged Lancers, called Inspira, before it was taken over by DRB-HICOM, a large Malaysian corporation, in 2012 for around £265 million.
