Despite the extended COVID-19 lockdown in the middle of the year, Proton’s total sales for 2021 has exceeded the 100,000 mark. This is the third consecutive year the national carmaker has managed to achieve this milestone, thanks to its strong model lineup.
In November 2021, Proton delivered 14,187 units, bringing the carmaker’s total sales for the year to 100,566 units. Compared to the same month in 2020, Proton’s sales actually increased by 24.3% – that’s quite a big improvement.
“November was a good sales month for Proton though overall industry numbers continue to be limited by supply and not demand. Crossing over the 100,000-unit threshold with a month to go is a highpoint for us after another year disrupted by COVID-19,” said the CEO of Proton Edar, Roslan Abdullah.
“We are humbled by the achievement and are now confident of ending the year with an increase in total sales,” he added. Chances are, the carmaker’s sales will see further growth next year, especially if the “Proton X90” makes its debut then.
