Proton just shared a new milestone it has achieved. Since its inception in 1983, the national carmaker has produced a whopping 5 million vehicles to date. The record-setting vehicle is none other than the Proton X90 Flagship, the most premium model in the company’s current lineup.

Aside from that, Proton also revealed that the Proton Saga itself contributed over 2 million sales to the figure. This is enough to keep its position as the most popular Malaysian-made car of all time, as the carmaker puts it.

“Proton was tasked with mobilising Malaysians and to establish a local automotive ecosystem when it was formed in 1983 and today, we continue to play a critical role in the nation’s economy. Over 100,000 people earn a living through activities linked to Proton and each of them played a role in driving the company towards this landmark achievement of five million units,” said the CEO of Proton, Li Chunrong.

“The five millionth unit produced by Proton is a Proton X90 Flagship, which is symbolic of how far the company has progressed since the beginning of the partnership with Geely. Just last week, we confirmed e.MAS as the brand name for future Proton EV products and today as we set yet another milestone, the future is ripe with opportunities for Proton to continue to provide sustainable mobility for Malaysians and our export markets,” he added.
