PROTON Showcases Concept Global Car Series at Geneva Motorshow

GENEVA, Switzerland, 2 March, 2010 – Malaysian car manufacturer PROTON today unveiled a series of concept global cars at the prestigious 80th International Geneva Motor Show. The three concept global cars – EMAS, EMAS Country and EMAS3 – signal PROTON’s long-term plan to expand its footprint in the global automotive market.

EMAS – which means gold in the Malay language – stands for Eco Mobility Advance Solution, and is a result of the joint collaboration between PROTON, its subsidiary Lotus, and Italian design house, Italdesign Giugiaro (IDG).

The cars were unveiled at IDG’s booth by PROTON Advisor and former Prime Minister of Malaysia Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and will be displayed throughout the exhibition from 4th to 14 March 2010. PROTON Holdings Berhad Chairman Dato’ Mohd. Nadzmi Mohd. Salleh and Group Managing Director Dato’ Haji Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir as well as Italdesign Giugiaro Chairman Giorgetto Giugiaro and Co-Chairman Fabrizio Giugiaro were present to witness the unveiling.

Speaking on the collaboration with IDG, Dato’ Mohd. Nadzmi said, “We constantly strive to acquire and jointly develop new knowledge, skills and technologies that will ultimately benefit our customers. While we continue to gain progressive technology from our subsidiary Lotus, our design collaboration with IDG will further strengthened our position within the global automotive industry.”

He added that PROTON wanted to work with the best and IDG topped other styling and design houses with their credibility and flair. “We undertook a careful process of benchmarking and a thorough point-by-point analysis of strengths and weaknesses in our decision. With IDG, we have good design and more, as they would contribute in our brand-building initiatives as well as provide knowledge-transfer to accelerate our learning curve in car design.”

Dato’ Syed Zainal Abidin said that the EMAS concept global car project signifies PROTON’s “golden” opportunity to stand in competence with the global automotive market.

“The unveiling of the concept cars today reflects the long-term strategy we have in matching global automotive standards as we expand and reinforce our presence worldwide.”

Dato’ Syed Zainal Abidin pointed out that the concept cars are the yardstick to gauge public opinion. “We strive to listen to our customers to ensure the development of a global car that meets customer’s requirements and expectations. The aim is to produce the global car for world market in the future,” he said.

    Hope Proton will incorporate dual fuel injector to the engine ( one injector per port) like that in the new Nissan engine ( ) to make it even more fuel efficient.
