Proton moved a lot of vehicles in June 2022 last month. With over 14,787 units sold, it was the national carmaker’s best sales month of the year. It also saw the most X50 units delivered in a single month with 4,473 units registered.
Not surprisingly, the X50 remains the best-selling B-segment SUV and the overall leader in the Malaysian SUV market. This year alone, 15,982 units of the X50 were delivered. As of March 2022, over 100,000 bookings of the SUV were received since orders opened in September 2020 – that’s a very respectable figure.
But Proton’s best-selling model last month is not the X50. Rather, it’s the Proton Saga with 5,460 units sold, making it the best-selling A-segment sedan in June 2022. Of course, the X70 and Exora remain the best-selling models in their respective segments too with 2,696 and 513 units sold respectively.
And then there are the Persona (1,224) and Iriz (421), which are placed third and fourth in their respective segments. In total, Proton sold 60,124 cars in 2022 so far with an estimated market share of 22.6%, putting it in second place in the automotive industry.
